Los Angeles, California, USA
Destination creator (Voyajo Team)
Located on the Pacific coast of the United States and less than 150 miles from the Mexican border, Los Angeles is the second most populous city in the U.S. Only New York City has more residents than the 3.8 million calling the City of Angels home. Thanks to its favorable climate, mixture of cultures, and array of landmarks and attractions, L.A. is also a firm favorite with tourists, 25 million of whom visit the city year.
Anybody planning a trip to Los Angeles is sure to have Hollywood firmly placed at the top of their ‘must see’ list. As well as being the center of the movie industry, this city district is home to such iconic sites as the Hollywood Sign, which can be found looming over the city in the Hollywood Hills; the Hollywood Walk of Fame, which celebrates famous actors, musicians, and celebrities; and Grauman’s Chinese Theater, one of the most magnificent pieces of architecture within the city.
Hollywood and Downtown Los Angeles also feature a wide range of entertainment venues, clubs, restaurants, and sporting venues. Those interested in seeing how the other half live may enjoy a ride to Beverly Hills, and a shopping excursion on Rodeo Drive.
Those who want to enjoy the Californian coastline are spoilt for choice. Venice Beach offers a colorful and bohemian atmosphere, while Santa Monica has beautiful sands and waters perfect for swimming. Head north along the coast beyond Malibu and you’ll discover quieter, picturesque beaches.
Families putting together a Los Angeles trip plan will most likely want to make the trip to Anaheim just south of the downtown district in Orange County. Since 1955, Anaheim has been home of the Disneyland Park and Resort, one of the region’s most popular tourist attractions.
Other tourist attractions of interest in and around Los Angeles include Universal Studios, the Griffith Observatory, and the Getty Center.
