It’s big, bold and beautiful, and not ‘just’ about Hollywood glitz and glamour. We’re talking about the City of Los Angeles, one of the most culturally diverse holiday locations in the world.
LA is also an increasingly common destination for business trips to the USA, and an ideal stopover point for flights to New Zealand, Hawaii or Australia for example. Whether you choose to fly into LAX for a one-night layover or head to the City of Angels to start your California holiday, your biggest challenge will be selecting from the many things to do in Los Angeles.
You could choose to spend sun-filled hours on a fabulous beach; hike, bike or shop in style; ‘do’ a theme park, the Getty Art Gallery or a superbly curated museum; or see a top theatre production. Packed with iconic landmarks, highly walkable areas and food establishments from every cuisine on the planet, be ready for La La Land to wow you!
Being a city with so much to offer, holidays to Los Angeles can have you driving from one side of the city to the other if you haven’t planned carefully. For example, doing the Griffin Observatory and Santa Monica on the same day can leave you cursing in the dreaded LA traffic. Planning both the location of your accommodation and having a good plan in place each day can save you both time and stress.
To help pin down a few choices, here are our favourite things to do in Los Angeles.
One of the best places to visit in Los Angeles is Santa Monica, with its world-famous pier, boardwalk and stunning beach. Though the incredible choice of places to eat in this part of California could well tempt you to stay indoors!
To work off your holiday fine dining, you could always head to Muscle Beach, Santa Monica, where the outdoor gym equipment and ‘scenery’ would inspire anyone to get fit. Alternatively, join many other colourful characters rollerblading along this section of stunning California coastline.
Don’t forget that LA offers 70 miles of Pacific Ocean shores, including secluded beaches around Malibu.
Disneyland California (the original and for many best Disney park) is viewed as a truly ‘ageless’ joy. However, for many holidaymakers, one of the best places to go in LA is the awe-inspiring Universal Studios Hollywood.
It has all the thrills, adventure and adrenalin-packed rides you would want, but also offers unforgettable immersive shows that truly bring movie magic alive.
The highlight of Universal Studios Hollywood could well be The Wizarding World of Harry Potter. Whether you’re a fan of the boy wizard or not, this is one of the greatest entertainment experiences currently available.
You would be hard-pressed not to see the Hollywood sign and other top LA landmarks as you explore this incredible city’s vibrant streets. However, it’s highly recommended that you make a point of visiting Hollywood Boulevard – with its fascinating Walk of Fame and TCL Chinese Theatre. It’s a quick ride from there to Rodeo Drive, with its stellar shopping experience and a mouth-watering array of top USA restaurants.
The place to explore in LA at night though is the bustling Sunset Strip, with its lively bars, clubs, comedy shows and venues definitely aimed at the adult market! You can enjoy every music genre in existence along the ‘Strip’.
