As one of the largest cities in the US, Los Angeles has hundreds of notable locations for visitors to explore. Are you fans of art? LA has plenty. Want to go for a leisurely stroll in the SoCal sun? Can do. Looking for thrills and excitement? Well, there’s an endless supply in LA! When you start building your Los Angeles itinerary, consider adding some of these popular destinations to your list:
From Sunset Boulevard to Rodeo Drive, Los Angeles has some of the most iconic roads and walkways in the country. Hollywood Boulevard and its many attractions are no different, especially the famous Hollywood Walk of Fame. Find your favorite celebrities among the 2,600 stars across the 1.3-mile stretch. Track down big names throughout entertainment history like Marilyn Monroe, Mickey and Minnie Mouse, Charlie Chaplin, Johnny Depp, and Leonardo DiCaprio. While visiting the walk of fame, be sure to make a stop at the TCL Chinese Theatre. This cultural monument opened in 1927 and has since hosted three Academy Awards and various notable film premieres.
The J. Paul Getty Museum is often simply referred to as “the Getty.” This art museum is split into two campuses, The Getty Center in Westside LA and The Getty Villa in Malibu. The Getty Center is the more popular of the two campuses, offering guests beautiful garden views and pristine mountaintop facilities. At the Getty Center, you’ll see work from European masters like van Gogh, Monet, Cézanne, Gaugin, Rembrandt, and Manet. Schedule at least half a day to admire the expansive collection and if time permits, take your charter bus up to the Villa to learn about the museum's ancient Greek and Roman sculpture collection.
Also known as LACMA, the Los Angeles County Museum of Art is the largest art museum on the West Coast with over 150,000 works in its permanent collection. The museum offers a multitude of diverse exhibitions, ranging from prehistoric art to contemporary work. LACMA offers more than art exhibitions, the museum also hosts film screenings, free concerts, and additional educational programs for the Los Angeles community. If you’re looking for a magical experience, take an evening stroll by LACMA’s Urban Light installation near the entrance. The permanent installation has become a major landmark for the museum, featuring 202 restored and functional cast iron street lamps.
Filled with miles of hiking trails and outdoor activities, Griffith Park is a must-visit location for groups of outdoor enthusiasts. The 4,310-acre park is the second-largest city park in California and among one of the biggest in the country. Hike the trails, visit the Hollywood Sign on Mount Lee, or even explore the ruins of the Old Los Angeles Zoo. The present-day Los Angeles Zoo and Botanical Gardens is also located in Griffith Park, but the abandoned zoo has a special charm that warrants a visit as well.
The stars are just a reach away at the Griffith Observatory in Griffith Park. The domed building has become a symbol of the city’s long-term dedication to science and space, offering the community free access to a planetarium, telescopes, and educational yet entertaining exhibitions. Learn all about our solar system from the comfort of the observatory’s state-of-the-art mountaintop facilities. Visiting the Griffith Observatory also offers sweeping views of the city and the iconic Hollywood Sign.
Theme park aficionados and film buffs should put Universal Studios Hollywood towards the top of their itinerary. The famous film studio and theme park is one of the biggest attractions in Los Angeles, welcoming over 9 million visitors a year. You’ll find some of the best film and entertainment series, including Harry Potter, The Simpsons, Jurassic Park, King Kong, and much more. Along with enjoying the park’s many rides, guests can also book a tour of Universal’s film studios. Get behind-the-scenes looks at sets from Fast & Furious and Bates Motel.
Do history and science pique your interest? Add tar to the equation and the La Brea Tar Pits & Museum are the perfect destination for your LA travels. This Ice Age excavation site and museum are among the most unique locations in Southern California. You can witness active excavation of fossils every day and see scientists hard at work in the Pits. Visit the museum and marvel at prehistoric fossils like sabre tooth tigers, dire wolves, insects, and various other animals.
Beach bums rejoice! The Santa Monica Pier and Beach is a postcard-worthy destination with its street performers, carnival rides, and an array of vendors. The pier is busy year-round with visitors coming for the vibrant waterfront experience. The amusement park’s rides include a historic merry go round, a colorful Ferris wheel and roller coaster at Pacific Park, an arcade, and a laundry list of other attractions, dining options, and shops. After exploring the pier, head over down the docks to Santa Monica State Beach to stick your toes in the sand.
Disneyland Resort is in Anaheim, just 26 miles northwest of Los Angeles, making it an easy day trip for groups visiting the City of Angels. The Anaheim resort features two theme parks: Disneyland Park and Disney California Adventure. Disneyland Park is your quintessential “Disney” experience, featuring 8 lands with everything from princesses to pirates. Disney California Adventure features all your favorite Disney characters with a Cali twist. Cruise down a Route 66 roller coaster in Cars Land or take a classic red car trolley around the park. The resort also includes three hotels, shopping and dining in Downtown Disney.
Home to the world-renowned LA Philharmonic Orchestra, the Walt Disney Concert Hall is one of the most architecturally sophisticated music halls in the world. The hall was designed by famous Canadian-American architect Frank Gehry and opened its doors in 2003. With its deconstructivist design, the building has become an architectural landmark in Downtown Los Angeles. While in LA, your group can catch a seasonal concert conducted by acclaimed director Gustavo Dudamel or even a special event by guest artists. If you don’t have time to catch a show, the concert hall also offers free hour-long tours of the beautiful music space.
Asking an LA local what neighborhood they live in may come with a long-winded explanation. The entirety of Los Angeles County has around 16 regions with over 200 neighborhoods. So asking where Echo Park begins and Silver Lake ends can be a complex question, depending on who you talk to.
If you’re planning a trip in LA and you’re not quite sure which neighborhoods to visit, there’s plenty to choose from. From small cultural enclaves to sprawling communities, LA has a little bit of everything for everyone. Central LA has top locations for young party-goers like the luxe Hollywood Hills and hipster Silver Lake, while Westside has great family destinations like Brentwood and Manhattan Beach.
Looking for a posh, party central? Head on over WeHo, home to the Sunset Strip, Melrose Avenue, and trendy celeb-laden spot, Chateau Marmont. West Hollywood is a great destination for groups of younger travelers looking for hot nightlife, entertainment, and dining. WeHo is also a major hub for LA’s diverse LGBT population. You come to WeHo for a great night out on the town, but stay for the vibrant community and culture.
Beverly Hills isn’t for those with a light wallet. The neighborhood has built a strong reputation as being a haven for old money. With its star-studded estates and prime luxury shopping along iconic Rodeo Drive, Beverly Hills is a popular neighborhood for vacationers looking for a taste of the high-life. Want to take a tour of celebrity homes, grab a bite at popular high-end eateries like Spago, or window shop at Chanel and Louis Vuitton? Beverly Hills, that’s where you want to be.
If you’re looking for a funky yet family-friendly beach bum atmosphere, Venice should be on your “must-visit” list. The boho beach town was founded in 1905 as the “Venice of America” and still kept its charming flair, even after various eras of revitalization. Although Venice Beach can become overrun with tourists, it’s still the home of some undeniably cool spots like the boardwalk, historic Muscle Beach Gym where Arnold Schwarzenegger broke a sweat in the 70s, and the iconic Venice Beach Skate Park. It’s the perfect place for people watching, enjoying street performances, catching some sun, and grabbing a few kitschy souvenirs along the boardwalk.
Los Angeles is known for its glitz and glamour, but also its large, homey, creative community. Silver Lake knows it’s not always about the hilltop houses, driving fifteen cars, and having a rockstar lifestyle. The neighborhood is home to the young, hip artists who would rather support a local coffee shop than be caught dead in a Starbucks. If you’re into vintage boutiques, craft beer, artisanal coffee, and an artistic sense of community, Silver Lake is your spot. Grab lunch or dinner at charming restaurants like Cafe Stella, have a drink or two at The Thirsty Crow, and so some shopping along the Sunset Junction.
With the growth of surrounding neighborhoods, DTLA lost its “cool” factor for some time. The city center has made a comeback in the spotlight with hundreds of new restaurants, nightlife locations, cultural centers, and posh, high-rise housing. Downtown is home to the bustling Arts District and world-renowned museums and performance centers like the Walt Disney Concert Hall, The Broad, and MOCA. The area can still get a little strange in the evening, but DTLA is well worth a visit to indulge in international foods at Grand Central Market or take a ride on the thrilling, 1000-feet-high Skyslide.
