In all the decades I have lived in and explored Los Angeles, I never knew about the Jerome C. Daniel Overlook on Mulholland Drive, courtesy of the Santa Monica Mountains Conservancy. I’ve been to some of the other overlooks but never this one, until now.
On Saturday some members of the International Tour Management Institute (ITMI) Southern California Alumni Network met at the Hollywood Bowl in order to drive around Los Angeles to brush up on information and share stories.
I always love visiting the Hollywood Bowl when there is no-one else around. Obviously it has a whole different ambience than when it is filled with 18,000 concert-goers. The Bowl is open most of the time so if you feel like visiting sometime just to wander around and get to know it people-free, just drive on into the ample parking lot (something you can’t do on a concert night) or take the train that stops just blocks away.
Our first stop after leaving the bowl was the overlook. The panoramic photo at the top of this page looks down on the Hollywood Bowl right of center, downtown LA on the horizon and the 101 (Hollywood) Freeway to the left.
From the Hollywood Bowl follow Cahuenga Blvd. and make a left on to Mulholland. The overlook is at 7036 Mulholland Drive, Hollywood.
