Los Angeles may be “The City of Angels”, but there are plenty of shenanigans to get into in this American hot spot. As the home of modern cinema and 24-hour taco deliveries, LA has a little fun for every traveller. Catch some rays and charge some waves on the beach, or go full fangirl or guy at a movie premiere. For the best homework assignment ever, book one of our Los Angeles holidays and get started on Californian cultural anthropology—er, we mean binge on movies like Point Break, Clueless and Drive. You’ll learn quickly that LA has beauty, brains and brawn…some more than others.
Located on the Southern California coast, the largest city in the Golden State welcomes millions of visitors year-round—but don’t worry, it’s easy to find accommodation in Los Angeles. With hotels everywhere from downtown to the Hollywood Hills and near every beach, you can book a sweet stay faster than you can sing “Hotel California”. Speaking of…you can book California accommodation and tour the state.
Heck yes, you’re looking forward to matching hand prints with James Brown on the Hollywood Walk of Fame and screaming through the Jurassic Park ride at Universal Studios Hollywood. But you also want to squeeze as much local flavour into your holiday as possible. In which case, start with California burritos—they have French fries rolled inside!—from one of the city’s many food trucks. With your belly full of SoCal cuisine, take a hike through Griffith Park in the Santa Monica Mountains, a reminder that LA is all about natural beauty—bahahaha, no it’s not. You can count spray tans on The Sunset Strip, though, or spend an arvo at Venice Beach, where it’s guaranteed to get more than a little weird. Clean up and keep it classy for a visit to the Getty Center, an art museum west of University of California, Los Angeles. Before you tuck in at one of the top hotels in Los Angeles, take in a live performance at Pantages Theatre on Hollywood Boulevard or drop it like it’s hot in dance clubs in the hip neighbourhood of Echo Park…Park…Park.
Fly to Los Angeles International Airport (LAX), located about 25 km southwest of downtown. The airport is so close to the coast that you could stop at Dockweiler State Beach for a waterfront picnic before cruising to your cool Los Angeles accommodation. Downtown LA does have a metro system, but this is driver’s territory, so check our awesome car hire options for a flashy convertible.
Well, LA is sunny more than 300 days a year, and the nearly endless supply of Los Angeles hotels mean it’s always a good time for walking along a pier. Plan around local events, like the Chinese New Year in Chinatown (February) and NoHo Theatre & Arts Festival in North Hollywood (May).
