From the gorgeous beaches and mountains to Hollywood and the diverse culture, Los Angeles is an amazing place for a personal and memorable proposal. You have done the hard work of shopping for the perfect lab grown diamond engagement ring, and you are ready to get to “I do.” Whether you’re looking for a crazy adventure or a quiet moment, we at Clean Origin have picked out the best places to propose in L.A.!

Classic City Proposals

Hollywood Sign

There is nothing that gives the feeling of old-world glamour and magic in Los Angeles more than the famous Hollywood Sign. If you are looking for that inspirational feeling in L.A. for your marriage proposal, you are going to want the Hollywood Sign in the background. Since you can no longer hike up to the sign, the best place to see the sign is a trail on Mt. Hollywood past the Observatory in Griffith Park.

Santa Monica Pier Ferris Wheel

Want a proposal that brings out your inner hopeless romantic? Try popping the question on the top of Santa Monica Pier’s Ferris Wheel in Pacific Park. As the world’s only solar-powered Ferris wheel, this ride will give you a panoramic view of Southern California’s coastline from more than 130 feet above the Pier. Propose at sunset for a truly magical moment.

Out-and-About Proposals

On Horseback 

What better way to propose than after a romantic and exciting horseback ride through the mountains? A few companies offer proposal ride packages in Griffith Park or Mt. Hollywood: Los Angeles Horseback Riding arranges proposal rides at sunset, sunrise, or under the moonlight, with or without food. All rides are guided, and you can also book a private sunset horseback ride. The Heart Bandits offer a Hollywood on Horseback Marriage Proposal experience where couples can enjoy beautiful panoramic views of Los Angeles, the Pacific Ocean, and the Griffith Observatory. 

A Gondola Ride

There are many great gondola rides in Redondo Beach, and Gondola Amore was voted the best in L.A. Take your love out on the water for a romantic sunset cruise onboard a peaceful gondola. Gondola Amore specializes in romantic experiences; they will coordinate with you and decorate the boat with flowers or candles, provide great food from appetizers to champagne to full meals, and make sure every detail is perfect for your proposal.

Proposals with a Great View

The Roof on Wilshire 

The Roof on Wilshire is located on top of The Hotel Wilshire, a Boutique Kimpton Hotel. Experience a rich, full-flavored spin on contemporary American cuisines while you take in the view from seven stories up with your significant other. Enjoy the scenic sprawl of LA, with 360-degree pool-side views of the LA skylines while enjoying your meal. The adjacent fire pit offers a great place to unwind with a drink or snack amidst the amazing views and the charming fire.

A Helicopter Ride

Want to get the greatest view possible? Many L.A. companies offer helicopter or small plane tours over the city, coast, or landmark of your choice. From a relatively budget-friendly 20 or 30-minute flight to elaborately orchestrated and catered proposals on a mountaintop or skyscraper, OrbicAir and Celebrity Helicopters offer packages like the helicopter tour (approximately 45 minutes), complimentary champagne toast, dessert, and a souvenir photo.

Intimate Proposals

Getty Center

After enjoying the incredible artwork and architecture at the Getty Center in Brentwood, take a romantic stroll through the gardens. The winding paths, beautiful flora, and the day-long focus on immortalized love and beauty will help set you up to pop the question at this L.A. landmark, one of the city’s best places to propose. The restaurant at the Getty Center in Brentwood also has a beautiful view of the Santa Monica Mountains, perfect for a romantic celebratory sunset dinner on the weekend.


High up above the business of downtown L.A., you will find the gorgeous French bistro and bar, Perch, overlooking the city skyline. Have appetizers or dinner first, then relax at the bar on the patio, surrounded by trees and romantic string lights. Cozy up together on the couches by the fireplaces and fire pits on chilly nights, a memorable and intimate evening proposal spot.
