LA Places with a view

Point Dume
On our return from Santa Barbara, we stopped in Malibu to visit Point Dume during sunset. Absolutely spectacular! Point Dune is a sand dune within the Point Dume State Beach Park. We parked by the water and climbed up the dune for the most incredible view of Malibu, the whole coastline, and a beautiful sunset. Stunning scenery, romantic setting, and absolutely fabulous photos afterwards.

Griffith Observatory
We visited the Griffiths Observatory, which located on the south side of Mount Hollywood within Griffith Park. People come up here to enjoy the views of Los Angeles, to see the famous Hollywood sign, and to visit the planetarium and the hall of science. This building was also used for many movie sets like Terminator and Charlie's Angels.

Getty Center
The other viewpoint we chose was the Getty Center. It is located on a hill and when you get there, you park your car and take the Getty tram to get up to the museum. The Getty Center was opened in 1997 and is home to a part of the collection from the J. Paul Getty Museum consists of approximately 50.000 pieces of art. They range from classical art to sculptures and photography. Located within this complex are the Getty Research Institute, the Getty Conservation Institute, and the Getty Leadership Institute. The complex also has a beautiful garden area and on a clear day, you can see as far as the Pacific Ocean, the mountains of Big Bear City, and downtown.
All are absolutely worth visit!
