Exploring Los Angeles

Nicknamed the ‘City of Angels’, Los Angeles (LA) is one of North America’s most sought-after tourism hot spots. Set along the coastline of Southern California, it caters for a residential population of about 17 million across its greater metropolitan area. From the hills of Hollywood to the shores of Santa Monica, this fascinating city is awash with amazing landmarks. Families will adore the theme parks, like Universal Studios and Six Flags, while couples will enjoy the culture of Venice Beach and the shopping of Downtown Los Angeles.

Being one of the largest and most-renowned cities in the United States, LA is home to a wide-range of high-end hotels, particularly in the central core of the city and around the more famous landmarks. World-class hoteliers like Hilton and Sheraton are well represented. Los Angeles has developed into a global city with a massive international airport and annual events attracting visitors from across the planet. For its size, it contains an semi-adequate public transportation network. However, for tourists, this network of buses and trains provides excellent convenience.

Sights nearby

Los Angeles has a long list of desirable attractions which are spread right across the city. Luckily for tourists, most of the landmarks are surrounded by comfortable accommodation options which are within easy reach of most of the tourist highlights of LA.

Universal Studios
Found inside Universal City, the theme park and film sets of Universal Studios provide the perfect day-out for families. Nevertheless, couples and single travellers will also find this landmark entertaining. With major movie and cartoon characters strolling throughout the thrill-ride dotted park, Universal Studios requires more than just a daytrip. Both the upper and the lower lots are filled with exciting attractions. Getting to the park is best done by Metro Rail.

Santa Monica Beach
By the early 20th century, Santa Monica was a popular beach resort. Since then, it has been incorporated into the Los Angeles Metropolitan Area and is now one of Southern California’s most popular beaches. The sandy stretch of coastline is wide, providing ample room for sunbathing. However, the beach gets crowded during the summer holidays and at weekends. Within Santa Monica, the Third Street Promenade and Pier are entertaining places to visit. There are a number of beautiful hotels just off the beachfront area, including the renowned Hotel Shangri La Santa Monica.

Rodeo Drive
If tourists are looking for a place to spend big and spend well, then Rodeo Drive is the ultimate in high-end shopping destinations. Situated between Wilshire and Santa Monica boulevards, this palm-tree-lined street is home to a long list of luxury retailers, including the likes of Chanel, Burberry, Louis Vuitton, and Prada. The restaurants along the strip are also high-end, offering an expensive but memorable experience. Within walking distance from Rodeo Drive is the spectacular Beverly Wilshire – Beverly Hills, a Four Seasons hotel.

Eating and drinking and shopping nearby

LA is a large city, but there are several areas of note when it comes to shopping, dining, and drinking. The best nightlife hovers around Sunset Strip, which is where many celebrities hang-out. Clubs in Hollywood, just off Sunset Strip, and LA Live are other important night spots for party-goers. For upscale shopping and dining, no areas beat Rodeo Drive and the ritzy Beverly Hills. Downtown Los Angeles, especially around LA Live, visitors can also find five-star dining. Classy hotels like the Hotel Wilshire, a Kimpton Hotel, offer great dining experiences, too.

Public transport

Though some would say Los Angeles’ public transportation is inadequate for the sheer size of the city, tourists should have no problem getting from one area to another via the Metro bus or rail systems. The Metro Rail network includes both elevated light rail and subway connections which reach most of the major areas around Los Angeles, including Hollywood, Pasadena, the San Fernando Valley, and Long Beach. Buses are cheaper and generally cover more areas than the train network, including much of central and southern Los Angeles.
