Your Weekend in Griffith Park: Scenic Trails, Stars at the Observatory, and Food & Fun in Los Feliz

Before you
Dear reader, we're asking you to help us keep local news available for all. Your tax-deductible financial support keeps our stories free to read, instead of hidden behind paywalls. We believe when reliable local reporting is widely available, the entire community benefits. Thank you for investing in your neighborhood.

Griffith Park is a mecca of activities and attractions for the outdoorsy Angeleno, offering everything from scenic trails, a breathtaking view of the stars, and even a glimpse of wild animals. For those looking to treat themselves to a nice meal, grab a drink, catch a live show, or pick up some fresh fruits and veggies, if you base your Griffith Park adventure out of neighboring Los Feliz, the area has you covered before or after your time in the park.

We take you through Griffith Park's best sites and attractions, and the food, drink, and fun of Los Feliz, to give you some inspiration for a full weekend of local exploration.
