The Best Accommodations and Attractions in Los Angeles!
Two of the best ways to make the most out of your time in Los Angeles is to rent a car and give one of the many tour buses a chance. While the former is great to get you from point A to point B, the latter are run by people who truly know what they are doing. If the idea of using a tour bus does not interest you, try a short guided tour to learn more about the city. Another way to really experience what Los Angeles has to offer is to speak with locals, from staff at hotels to people on the street, people are truly friendly and they will help you find spots that fit your taste and even places where some may not even think of going. If you are particularly into cinema, check out the TCL Chinese Theater and the Egyptian Theater which are but a few blocks from each other and are beautiful locations with a great amount of Hollywood history behind them. Go compare your feet with Marilyn's or take a photo on the lounge chair in the nearby mall with the Hollywood sign in the background. While going from one location to the other, pay attention to the ground while walking as you will find the names of some of your favorite stars of the big and small screens as well as music. This seemingly small area of Hollywood is full of interesting small museums, film locations, and people. If higher end is what you look for, try a quick drive down Sunset Boulevard from Hollywood's center to Robertson Ave, then Santa Monica Blvd, then to Rodeo Dr where you will certainly find some of the finest dining establishments and clothing stores and may even spot a celebrity or two. Once in Beverly Hills, stop by La Provence Patisserie & Cafe for a quick bite to eat and a few macaroons from the original location of the LAX patisserie. Also in the area are restaurants specializing in everything from caviar to garlic. Beverly Hills is a great place to people watch and become a true foodie. If in town with the kids, make sure you make some time for Venice Beach and its modernized, self-proclaimed Freakshow, then reserve a day for either Universal Studios with its newly open Harry Potter section and its renovated and updated studio tour. If you feel a bit more adventurous, you can easily drive to Disneyland, Knotts Berry Farm, Magic Mountain, or even a bit further to Legoland or the San Diego Safari Park. So many other options are also available for entertainment in the city and around, do not skip on visiting the Getty Villa, Paradise Cove in Malibu, or stores like Dark Delicacies and The Last Bookstore. For music and movie fans, try eating at Mel's Diner and Cafe 101 or drinking at the Rainbow Bar and Grill and Clifton's to name but a few. Los Angeles has so much to see and some much to do, that a single trip might just not be enough.
