Los Angeles: world-class city, home to the stars of Hollywood, and the west coast version of the American Dream. There is so much to see and do in Los Angeles, you could vacation here for months on end, if you had the cash, and still not see and do everything. Whatever sights you do choose to see, you’ll want to hire a Los Angeles cab. Traffic can be notorious, and no one wants to spend their vacation hours being lost. The following is a list of five must-see sights to help you get started.
If you want to spend lots of vacation time in the surf and sun, Venice Beach is the place for you. Lounge on the beach, go surfing, or take a walk along the famous boardwalk. Venice Beach is famous for a reason, and it exemplifies the west coast beach experience.
Who could visit L.A. without checking out Hollywood? If you’re feeling star struck, take a walk down the Walk of Fame and take note of all the stars embedded in the walkways listing achievements of generations of Hollywood celebrities. The Walk of Fame takes you to the famous Grauman’s Chinese Theater, where you can see the handprints of your favorite Hollywood stars and see how your own hands measure up. Other sights include paramount Studios and the Hollywood Heritage Museum.
If you’ve got kids, they’ll be screaming for you to take them to Disneyland. Located in nearby Anaheim, it has enough rides, attractions, and other kinds of amusement to last for days. If that isn’t enough, visit the nearby Universal Studios as well. If you’ve already seen both, catch the rides and attractions at Six Flags Magic Mountain in Valencia or at Knott‘s Berry Farm in Buena Park.
If you’ve got cash to spend, make sure to visit the shops along Rodeo Drive. This street is world-famous for its trendy, designer label and high fashion boutique shops. If shopping is your thing, this is the place to be and to be seen.
The Farmers Market makes for a good change in pace. Featuring more than one hundred shops, grocers and restaurants, and food vendors offering tasty treats from a variety of different cultures. And, like any farmers’ market, there is fresh produce to be had as well. Unlike most farmers’ markets, however, this one is open seven days a week.
Los Angeles is a world-class city, full of things to see and do. The preceding list of five places barely scratches the surface, but makes for a good jumping-off point. Wherever you do decide to go in L.A., make sure to hail a Los Angeles cab. It’s your vacation. Kick back and leave the driving to someone else.
