    Our Trip to the Griffith Observatory

    Jimmy and I made a trip to the famous Griffith Observatory today for our two year anniversary. The beautiful Los Angeles landmark has been closed for the last 4 years during an extensive rehab. It opened on Nov 3rd and is baeutiful!

    You now need reservations to visit. There are two shuttle pick up locations; one at the Los Angeles Zoo and one at Hollywood & Highland. We went to the Hollywood location so we could do a little sight seeing before our tour.

    The Chinese Theater was not accessable due to the fact that they were doing the premier of "Happy Feet" There were stars right across the street from us but we couldn't see a thing due to the crowds.

    We did see a few Disney interest sites.....





    Then we headed to our tour of the observatory. It was a beautiful day in L.A.




    The last time I visited I was 5.....so 32 years later I don't remember the exhibits. But new or not they are quite amazing!







    And the architecture of the building is amazing!






    If you do get a chance to visit there are two things you SHOULD NOT MISS!!

    DO NOT MISS the Planetaruim! I REALLY enjoyed the show! The computer generated graphics could have been a little better but the show was quite amazing! Our live narrator...was INCREDIBLE!!!

    Also, the cafe is run by Wolfgang Puck, lunch was good....but the brownies were the best I have ever tasted!!! I LOVED THEM!!

    All in all we had a great day and I highly reccomend, if you have the chance, make a reservation and visit the Griffith Observatory!

    Glad you had fun! Griffith Observatory is truly one of Los Angeles' treasures and has always been one of my favorite places since I was a little boy. Glad to hear it's even better than before!

    Oh and happy anniversary!!

    I will probably go just because I need extra credit for my astronomy class. Does it cost to go?

    Re: Our Trip to the Griffith Observatory

    Yu can drive and park there too, right?
    It's on my list!
    And happy anniversary!
    Good morning, son
    In twenty years from now
    Maybe we'll both sit down and have a few beers
    And I can tell you 'bout today
    And how I picked you up and everything changed
    It was pain
    Sunny days and rain
    I knew you'd feel the same things...

    Re: Our Trip to the Griffith Observatory

    Do they still have the camera set up to show you who is walking in front? We used to send our friends out front to wave and act goofy for the camera and then we could see them on a big screen inside the observatory. Ahhhh, field trips......

    No, you can't drive to it anymore! You have to use the shuttle they provide.

    Well, that sucks I'd have to go all the way out of the way, in the opposite direction, just to get on a shuttle to take me past where I came from! Ridiculous!! This is now off my list then
