Fabulous Los Angeles. It’s the place where dreams are made. But, there is so much more to LA than the Hollywood sign (although, of course, it would be amazing to see it up close!). Los Angeles has always been the place where many tourists want to head to. After all, it’s the town of glitz and glamour. But, LA offers a whole host of different experiences. It’s not all movie stars and Hollywood glamour. On the contrary, there are some fantastic museums and sports that you can take a look at too. There is always something happening in LA.
So, how can you plan your trip of a lifetime? Here are some fantastic must-see places in Los Angeles.
HEAD TO THE GETTY CENTRE
The Getty Centre is home to some of the world’s most incredible feats of art. If you want to see Van Gogh’s “Irises” up, close and personal, you can only do so in LA. Some of the world’s best known pieces of art are stored in the Getty. LA has one of the largest and most well known art collections in the entire world. It’s a great place to see art in all of its glory.
You cannot go to LA without heading to Hollywood. The phenomenal and iconic sign is one of the world’s most recognised landmarks. Hollywood is the ultimate place of glitz and glamour. You never know who you may bump into around Hollywood! LA is the entertainment capital of the world. So, you need to head there if you are something of a movie buff. The Universal Studios tour is unlike anything you will have experienced. From the golden age of cinema to the present day, it’s a must for those who want to see Oscar-winning studios in the flesh. You are sure to feel overcome with emotion once you’re there!
DINING IN LA: WOLFGANG PUCK
If you want to act like a movie star for the day, head to the Wolfgang Puck. You may bump into your favourite star while you’re there. It’s something of a celebrity haunt. But, the food is fantastic too. If you want to add a more star feel to your day, hiring the local Prestige town car service is a must. Of course, oversized sunglasses are mandatory!
So, now you have experience the dizzying heights of celebrity culture, it’s time to see Hollywood in a whole new light. The Runyon Canyon is a quiet park that is made for quiet contemplation. After all, LA can be a little busy at times! The park is 90 acres of pure bliss away from the hustle and bustle and is the perfect spot to soak up that world famous LA sun.
Santa Monica is often overlooked by many tourists to LA, but if you want some old-time charm to your vacation, it’s a great place to head to. The Santa Monica Pier has become something an institution. With Ferris wheels, immaculate beaches and aquariums, all the family will love to head here. It’s certainly more laid back than Hollywood, but that doesn’t make it any less beautiful. Bumming about on the beach has never been more perfect!
