As I travel writer Living in LA – I am biased that Los Angeles is THE best place to visit!!
I have seen everything and done everything here.
If you are coming – you have TONS of place to see and do while you are here….there are AREAS to see and I will Break them up:
This video is of my favorite place to go (cause I live here !!! And it’s just cool!!) The LA relaxing – hide here and bring the kids!!
- Hollywood: A tourist trap but one you must see if you have yet to go. Why? Because you must see it!!! Here is a video on what to see during your time there.
2. Beverly Hills:
Do not miss driving through here – keep your eyes open though!! Celebrities are everywhere in nice and ugly (hidden) cars!!
4) Santa Monica:
Do not miss going to the beach and seeing all the things on the pier – it is another tourist trap and it will be crowded but it’s beautiful!! Also – don’t miss the 5 blocks of stores on the 3rd street promenade -no cars – all shopping and eateries!!
The most filmed area in movies you will ever see. Also there is only 1 road in and 1 road out from LA…so chances are it’s a great place to spot all kinds of celebrities!! Keep eyes open!!
6) Topanga Canyon:
This stretch of driving is AMAZING- it’s like Colorado!! BEAUTIFUL!! Do not miss this drive!!! Click that button below and learn what to see and do in this one GREAT drive!!
7) Venice: Tourist trap but a fun one!! Shopping galore but be aware of shopping where there are NO price tags on the items. If you see an item w/o a price tag – LEAVE the store. You will be scammed at a hugely high price. There are better places to find clothes!! WAY better!! If you eat in Venice, be sure to check your bill – they often charge you for tip – so if you don’t look you may pay DOUBLE tip!! Also – video below is fun!!
8) Manhattan Beach:
THE BEST BEACH in Los Angeles, or even the whole USA!! Here’s the deal – they don’t promote for tourism so you will be like you are right in
9) Hermosa Beach:
Younger feel than Manhattan Beach and if you are between 20-40, this is the place for you!! Great eateries and happy hours! And a giant strand that you can bike from Torrance beach all the way up to Santa Monica and beyond!!
10) Redondo Beach:
A beautiful beach and an amazing pier full of fun things to do. A bit more touristy than the other two above (they are all in the same area of beaches) and you can hit/walk thru them all in a matter of 30 mins!!
11) Long Beach:
Tons of places to eat, beautiful hotels, Aquarium, rides and fun!!
12) Downtown Los Angeles:
I had a list to give you but lets be honest, this guy shares and has done it already for me. He’s good!!
13) Universal Studios: This is my video. I hope you enjoy it!!
