Thanks to its beautiful beaches, endless SoCal sun, waving palm trees, and dusting of glitz and glamour, the City of Angels really does feel like heaven on Earth. Located between crashing Pacific waves and the lofty San Gabriel Mountains, Los Angeles serves up impressive vistas as well as serious style.
Begin your tour of LA by visiting some of the city’s most famous landmarks and attractions, heading from the Hollywood Walk of Fame (and the TCL Chinese Theatre) to the Sunset Strip. Wend your way past the mansions and celebrity homes in Malibu and Santa Monica, and go for a whirlwind shopping tour along Rodeo Drive. The city’s cultural offerings should also tempt, whether you choose to take in the art exhibitions and the views at the hilltop Getty Center, catch a concert at the Frank Gehry-designed Walt Disney Concert Hall, or head right across the street to visit the recently debuted Broad Museum.
Don’t let your excursions stop there. Los Angeles is a city of diverse neighbourhoods, so it’s worth venturing from Silver Lake – home to trendy boutiques and bars – to delectable Koreatown, from vibrant Venice Beach to bustling Downtown, to really take the measure of this thriving metropolis.
