Attractions and Tips

Los Angeles is renowned for its entertainment, so you'll want to see the essentials while you're here. Visit the Hollywood Walk of Fame, Universal Studios Hollywood, Santa Monica Pier, TCL Chinese Theatre, Walt Disney Concert Hall, Griffith Observatory, Madame Tussauds and Sunset Boulevard.

Other must-sees include the Dolby Theatre, Los Angeles Zoo, Hollywood Bowl, Natural History Museum and the Museum of Contemporary Art.

Los Angeles is also known for its moderate-to-warm climate, which it enjoys year-round, so pack light clothing and only bring light layers in winter.

Many of the hotels in LA have a Hollywood theme, which is popular with travelers, but you can also find cheaper accommodations throughout the city close to major attractions.
