Explore Los Angeles.

If you deplane in Los Angeles hoping to encounter the Hollywood of yesteryear, you may find yourself a little disappointed. While there is plenty of glitz and kitsch left in L.A. and in the Hollywood area, time does indeed march on. The Hollywood Walk of Fame continues to grow. The Sunset Strip is as busy as ever, but looks nothing like it did in the ’80s or ’60s—let alone the ’30s. The era of streetcars is long gone, giving way to highways and, finally, subways. What else has changed in L.A. since its golden age? Who says it’s not the golden age, anymore?

Maybe you prefer to keep your sightseeing outdoors. If that’s the case, find your way to Griffith Park. There are hiking trails and biking trails, but there’s also the famous Griffith Park Conservatory. Take a stroll around the grounds and relive some of Hollywood’s most iconic moments. For more outdoors fun, cruise over to Malibu Creek State Park for 15 miles of streamside trails and more famous outdoor locations.

If your vision of Los Angeles involves more of all that glitters, start by making sure you look the part. Salons and spas abound in the City of Angels; book an appointment or two for some pampering. If you’re a clotheshorse or just appreciate the finer things, there’s no lack of high-end shopping options in and around L.A. From Rodeo Drive to Larchmont to Pacific Palisades, you can find any store, any style, any staple, or any fashion statement you can dream up. When you travel to Los Angeles with Southwest, you’ll be able to focus on whatever matters to you.
