Explore Los Angeles.

Los Angeles is calling. When you deplane at Los Angeles International Airport, all the glitz and glimmer is just a quick trip away by car or public transit. That’s right—Los Angeles has a public transit system, including buses and trains. If you’d like to hit the open road, consider renting yourself something with a drop top and taking a cruise up the Pacific Coast Highway.

Maybe your idea of spending time in the great outdoors doesn’t include driving. If that’s the case, there’s plenty of nature’s bounty to take in both in and around L.A. Find your way to Griffith Park for great hiking, breathtaking views, and a chance to experience the Griffith Park Observatory. Not only can it lead to some beautiful sights, but the building itself is a famous landmark and well-known film location in its own right. For more hiking, head up to Malibu Creek State Park. Along with its 15 miles of streamside trails, it’s also another well-known film shoot location.

Once you’re done exploring the great outdoors, tuck into some food! Los Angeles has world-class restaurants featuring all types of cuisines, as well as street-food favorites. Food trucks abound as well. After a great meal, consider keeping the fun going by hitting the Sunset Strip for some iconic L.A. nightlife. Party the night away until the bars close. If drinking and dancing isn’t for you, maybe you’d prefer to laugh. Los Angeles is home to both the Groundlings and the Upright Citizens Brigade improv troupes, or consider dropping into the Comedy Store to see up-and-comers and famous faces alike.
