Top reasons to go to Los Angeles

Live Los Angeles like a local

The first thing that strikes you when flying to Los Angeles is the sheer scale of the place – its urban sprawl is twice the size of Chicago, so there’s a lot to take in. From the boardwalks of Venice Beach to the boutiques of Beverly Hills, there’s a wealth of amazing places to explore. Here’s the lowdown for your holiday in Los Angeles.

Los Angeles: things to do

When visiting Los Angeles, most travellers’ thoughts turn first to Hollywood; the movie stars, the studios, the glamour. In truth, Hollywood Boulevard is a bit of a tourist trap, with its crowds and costumed characters. To recapture the glamour of the golden age, put your best foot forward on the Old Hollywood Walking Tour, which explores the hangouts where F Scott Fitzgerald and Raymond Chandler kicked back after hours, along with the vintage architecture hidden among the modern buildings. While you’re in the area, duck into the Hollywood Roosevelt hotel, to explore the striking lobby of this 1927 landmark.

One of the best places to visit in Los Angeles is Griffith Park, which has appeared in films as diverse as La La Land and The Terminator. The famous Observatory offers iconic views over the city, while the park’s 4,000-plus acres also house the Los Angeles Zoo and the Autry Museum of the American West. Tucked away on the north side of the park, you can find Walt’s Barn, a small museum that pays tribute to Walt Disney’s passion for the railroad.

Further west, there’s plenty to see on your trip to Los Angeles. The coastal city of Santa Monica is home to an abundance of museums, movie theatres, amusement arcades and the Looff Hippodrome carousel. Founded in 1905 as a holiday resort, Venice Beach – or simply Venice – is world famous for its boardwalk full of colourful characters. Take a stroll around the canals lined with beautiful houses, then try the old school Mexican tacos at La Cabaña.

Top places to visit in Los Angeles

Downtown has dramatically transformed itself in recent years, going from rough to rocking and becoming an essential port of call on any trip to Los Angeles. Now rebranded as DTLA, it’s home to eclectic markets Grand Central and NYC-import Smorgasburg, along with eccentric shopping destinations such as the Time Travel Mart (“Whenever you are, we’re already then”) and The Last Bookstore. The vast cultural edifices of the Arts District, such as the Museum of Contemporary Art, The Broad art museum and Frank Gehry’s iconic Walt Disney Concert Hall, stand alongside a theatre scene that has mushroomed in the post-industrial district.

Restaurants continue to spring up around Downtown, such as David Schlosser’s Shibumi, which offers Japanese kappo-style bar-cooking with minimalist dishes paired with biodynamic wine or sake. While you’re in the area, take some time out in the newly-renovated LA State Historic Park. Set on the site of the Southern Pacific terminal, where new arrivals to LA disembarked, it was the “Ellis Island of Los Angeles” – the crucible of the city. Nowadays, this welcome oasis of greenery plays host to concerts and events throughout the year.

If you’re looking for shopping in Los Angeles, look no further than Beverly Hills and the boutiques of Rodeo Drive. This notorious zip code was a Spanish ranch full of cattle and cowboys until it was bought by oil speculators-turned-land-developers in the early 1900s. Alongside the celebrities and shopping opportunities, the area is host to some of LA’s best contemporary art galleries, such as the Gagosian.
