Thinking about visiting Los Angeles?
Los Angeles is famous for a variety of things: Hollywood, The Beach Boys, everyone who’s ever wanted to become an actor, ever.
But LA is so much more than just its celebrities!
A melting pot of culture, art, mountains, beaches and infinite photo possibilities, LA is the ultimate destination for a weekend vacation!
Where to Stay:
If you’re looking for gorgeous rooms overlooking the city, look no further than The Hoxton Hotel.
Think beachy California meets Hollywood glamour, The Hoxton is directly in the center of LA and within walking distance of many popular attractions.
For more luxurious accommodation, The Omni Hotel & Resort features 17 stories of modern, sophisticated style within downtown LA.
Sitting on Bunker Hill, this hotel overlooks the cityscape complete with fitness centers, spas, restaurants and a private club.
What to Eat:
Bring your LA experience with brunch at Angelini Alimentari, a casual downtown cafe that’s all but low-key.
You’ll be blown away at the artistry when your entrees come out, and then again with your bill - these low-cost prices do not match the culinary mastery in front of you.
Sugarfish has several locations in Los Angeles, but all uphold the same exceptional standard when it comes to sushi.
Their simple, classic takes on sushi is well known for both unprecedented taste and it’s unreasonably low prices.
At Broken Spanish, the Mexican entrees are almost as popular as the genuine enthusiasm displayed by the staff.
You’ll feel right at home with your friendly waiters, spirited musicians, and nostalgic comfort food dishes.
Things to Do:
Start your trip off with movie-star glamour by visiting the Griffith Observatory to get an unblocked view of the infamous Hollywood sign!
Contrary to popular belief, you cannot get too close to the sign because it is private property, and you’ll be trespassing- which police heavily observe for.
Griffith Observatory is one of the most iconic buildings in LA for being the most visited astronomy exhibition in the entire world.
Take a stroll down Hollywood Boulevard and check out the star-studded sidewalk’s Walk of Fame.
Here, over 2,690+ entertainers have earned the achievement of a lifetime, printing their name forever into the 15 blocks of stars.
Take a scenic tour of Rodeo Drive, LA’s most luxurious street.
Here, you’ll find high-end brands, incredible restaurants, and thousands of photo opportunities.
You’re guaranteed to see at least one celebrity, but play it cool - be polite and say “hi” instead of shoving things to autograph at them!
