If you’re planning a trip to Los Angeles, here are some fun things to do to have an amazing vacation:
Visit the beach
Los Angles is home to beautiful beaches. There’s Santa Monica, which has it’s own pier complete with rides and games; Malibu with its fancy restaurants and million-dollar homes; Venice beach with its eclectic characters; and Redondo Beach with its vibrant nightlife filled with bars and the like. Heading to the beach is one of the first thing tourists do to experience the city and it should be at the top of your list, too! You can take a dip in the Pacific ocean, lay out in the sand or walk the pier and experience the locals.
Get star struck in Hollywood
A huge reason so many tourists want to visit L.A. is because it’s home to Hollywood, the movie capital of the world. Not only can you take a stroll down the Hollywood Walk of Fame to see your favorite celebrity, star, artist or personality, that you can also check out the hand and footprints of some of the most iconic names in Hollywood at the iconic Chinese Theater. Hollywood also boasts lots of cool places to see, eat and shop, providing tourists with lots to see and do. And if you want to see where the rich and famous stay, you can book one of many celebrity tours that will take you all around the city’s hotspots and even outside the homes of celebrities. An L.A. trip isn’t complete without a visit to Hollywood!
View amazing art
Although museums aren’t exactly at the top of every tourist’s list, when you visit L.A. you can’t miss out on the art that’s at the city’s Getty Center. It’s one of the best museums in the world thanks to its generous endowments that allows it to have such an impressive collection. You can view several works of art from historic artists like Monet, Rubens, Renoir, Van Gogh and Cezanne. The museum also has a vast photography collection and the ground themselves are a reason to visit thanks to its picturesque scenery and gardens, including its fine sculpture garden.
Visit Rodeo Drive
Of course you’ve probably heard of Rodeo Drive or at least scene it in movies (“Pretty Woman” being one of them) and now you can actually stroll along one of the world’s most luxurious streets. Even if you can’t afford to buy anything from the street’s many high-end stores, it’s still fun to experience it. And you can even visit Anderson Court, which is the only shopping mall ever to be designed by the famous Frank Lloyd Wright.
Take a stroll down Museum Row
If museums are your thing, you’ll want to take a stroll down Museum Row, which is home to the Los Angeles County Museum of Art (LACMA), with the focal pound the BP Grand Entrance that includes the stunning installation (and most photographed entrance ever) of Chris Burden’s Urban Light. And that’s right across the street from the Petersen Automotive Museum and the Craft & Folk Art Museum.
If you have kids (or even if you’re a big kid), you have to stop by Disneyland to experience the Happiest Place On Earth! The legendary theme park has Disneyland and California Adventure and provides guests with loads of rides, food and attractions! Many like to at least visit for two days to get the most of the two parks and if you have a family, it’s practically a must when you visit L.A.!
Visit Universal Studios
If you’re not a huge fan of all things Disney, then you can easily get your fill at Universal Studios, which also boasts fun rides and various attractions. The theme park is also located in the heart of Universal City Walk, which boasts loads of shops, restaurants and more!
L.A. is an amazing city and a great place to visit any time of the year thanks to the great weather all year round. With so much to do, you’ll definitely want to make sure you stay for at least a week to see and do everything on your list!
