Explore Los Angeles

Los Angeles is known far and wide as the entertainment capital of the world. The nickname may refer to Hollywood and the film industry, but it also speaks to just how much there is to do in the City of Angels. Get star struck when you visit one of Hollywood’s most iconic locations, the TCL Chinese Theatre. Since 1927, this legendary theatre has stood as a monument to Hollywood’s golden age and tours are offered daily. On your way there, you’ll probably want to stroll the famous Hollywood Walk of Fame!

Another iconic site in Los Angeles is the legendary Rodeo Drive. One of the most famous shopping destinations in the world, Rodeo Drive offers an upscale shopping experience like none other. Whether you’re looking to go on a spree through its designer stores and chic boutiques, or just want to browse a little to say you’ve done it, Rodeo Drive is one L.A. hot spot you’re not going to want to miss.

You probably didn’t come to L.A. just to check out how the rich and famous live—you also came for the great weather and great beaches! Just west of downtown Los Angeles is Santa Monica Pier and Beach. Zip around on a roller coaster, check out the pier’s famous Ferris wheel, play games, and enjoy the fun, carnival-like atmosphere of the Pier. Though L.A. is famous for its traffic, you’ll find Santa Monica very walkable and perfect for bike-riding.
