Jampack your days in L.A. with as much shopping, site seeing and roller coaster rides as you can handle or take it slow at the many art galleries, wellness centres and natural escapes. Just hire a car or order an Uber and get on your way to enjoying a blissfully sunny day out.
Disneyland is a classic L.A. experience but if you prefer classical music to children’s pay a visit to the majestic Walt Disney Concert Hall. There is also plenty of magic to be made at Universal Studios Hollywood where tours of movie backlots are combined with the Wizarding World of Harry Potter and other movie-themed rides and attractions. Theme parks not your family’s idea of fun? Visit the La Brea Tar Pits &Museum where you can watch the bubbling tar pits and see fossils of the animals preserved in them.
Surrounded by a diverse array of natural wonders and wilderness, L.A. is also a wealth of outdoor activities. Take the easy hike up to The Kenneth Hahn Park in the middle of West L.A. or challenge yourself at Runyon Canyon where you’re sure to see the Hollywood sign and maybe some celebs. After enduring the city’s traffic, treat yourself to some self-care by heading to The NOW for a massage, Erewhon Health Food Market for a restorative treat or recenter yourself with a class at Love Yoga.
Sunsets are also a spectator sport in L.A. and should be spent either up high overlooking the whole city at Griffith Observatory or at sea level by the Venice Beach Skate Bowl. L.A. is full of iconic buildings, shopping, restaurants, nightlife and wellness hubs, waiting for you to explore.
