Making the Most of Your Time in Los Angeles

If you’re thinking of heading to Los Angeles anytime soon, you need to be properly prepared and be aware of everything that this incredible place has to offer you. It’s the kind of place that’s easy to fall in love with, and you might find yourself not wanting to leave once you’ve tasted it for yourself. It is important to make the most of your time there though and that’s mostly to do with the fact that there’s so much on offer and you can’t possibly do and see all of it.

The Entertainment Industry

Hollywood is the major draw for many people visiting Los Angeles. It’s the city where dreams are turned into motion pictures and pumped out to audiences all over the world. The history of the entertainment industry in Los Angeles is fascinating and you can explore it today by visiting the museums and touring the movie studios.

Venice Beach

Venice Beach is not only one of the best beaches in America but one of the best in the entire world and anyone who’s visited it will know what I mean. It’s a slice of bohemian life that’s totally at odds with other more corporate parts of the city so it’s definitely worth checking out while you’re in Los Angeles.

Learn Something

There are lots of opportunities for you to learn new things while you’re visiting LA, especially if you’re interested in science and space. The Griffith Observatory is one of the city’s most lasting and iconic landmarks. And after you’ve stopped off there, you could head to The Broad, LA’s big new museum that will surely impress you.

Driving in Style

One of the best things you can do in LA is simply driving around it, even better if you have an open top car and some great tunes blasting out of the speakers. There are lots of great driving routes, but the one part of the city that you definitely should drive around is Mulholland Drive. Cruising along that road in the hills above the city is simply incredible.

Where to Stay

There’s something for everyone in Los Angeles when it comes to hotels and accommodation. If you’re looking for high-end, no expense spared accommodation, SLS Hotel in Beverly Hills should be near the top of your list. If you get a taste for Beverly Hills, you might want to stay for even longer, in which case you should visit this website. For a more affordable stay, the Hollywood Plaza Inn is definitely worth considering.

Eating and Drinking

It will come as a little surprise that there are lots of great places to eat and drink in Los Angeles. Both The Edison and Bar Marmont are fantastic drinking spots. The latter is elegant and sophisticated in that LA way, while the former is more upbeat and fanciful. Republique and Water Grill are two of the finest restaurants in the city too.

Los Angeles is undoubtedly one of the greatest cities on earth, and you owe it to yourself to make the most of your time there.
