NERDY PLACES FEATURE

Los Angeles has a history rooted in the stars. Griffith Observatory, in the hills above Los Angeles, holds a special place. It is an observatory, accessible to the public, designed with the purpose of astronomy. There are numerous telescopes, educational exhibits and an entertaining planetarium. Yet another opportunity to connect with the stars — the Leonard Nimoy Even Horizon theater plays a documentary on the observatory narrated by Leonard Nimoy.
