Holidays to Los AngelesPerfect holidays in Los Angeles mean something different to everyone. Some people picture themselves visiting the Hollywood sign; others want to wander past the mansions of Beverly Hills. For some, it’s all about going rollerblading on the seafront, while shopaholics picture themselves hitting the boutiques on Rodeo Drive. Everyone has their very own movie-inspired picture of the City of Angels, but it has so much more to offer on top of all that.
Los Angeles Icons
Los Angeles has firmly made its mark as the movie capital of the world. With studios seemingly around every corner, LA churns out films faster than they can be turned into DVDs. The likes of 20th Century Fox, Universal Studios, Paramount Pictures and Warner Brothers all make their homes in Los Angeles and with tours of the studios on offer; you simply can’t pass up the opportunity to go behind the scenes.
Sport is another big focus in LA, with the Dodgers playing in the Major Baseball League, while the Lakers and Clippers represent basketball in the city. Each team brings thousands of tourists and sports fans to California every year, so getting tickets to a game is well worth doing during your LA holiday.
The Beaches of Los Angeles
Of course, the beaches of LA should not be forgotten. Malibu is one of the most famous beaches in the world and is perfect for surfing, so if you’re into water sports, hire a board and hit the waves. The perfect, pale sand of the beaches stretch on for miles, offering ample opportunity for sunbathing and just absorbing the laid-back, relaxing atmosphere. Venice Beach, Santa Monica Beach and Manhattan Beach all have something different to offer and if you want to get a real taste of the flavour of LA, be sure to visit all three.
