Kick off your Los Angeles holidays with a plan. Are you in the mood for sand and surf? Or are you waiting to pay homage at the House of Mouse? Maybe you want to immerse yourself in Hollywood style and experience the incredible shopping destinations this city has to offer. No matter what your holiday style, this city will not disappoint.
Downtown LA is a great place to make a home base in order to easily explore the many neighbourhoods of the city. Chinatown and Japantown are near the city centre and offer great options for authentic Asian lunch or weekend dim sum. A stroll down Hollywood Boulevard, along the Walk of Fame, is a nice way to enjoy an afternoon with the stars. In the evening, head west towards Santa Monica to catch the sunset and the surfers from the Santa Monica pier.
For a true Pacific Coast adventure, secure one of Wotif’s LA car hire options and take advantage of one of the San Diego packages that are available. Only 53 kilometres south, the drive down the coastal Highway 1 has you zipping cliffside along the gleaming blue Pacific. If the whole family is along, nearby theme parks have you covered—filled with rides, attractions and a little magic, they can easily be destinations themselves.
For the ultimate Los Angeles shopping experience, head to the famous Rodeo Drive in Beverly Hills. You never know who you might spot coming in or out of one of the area boutiques. Los Angeles has also been building up the downtown shopping scene with the LA Fashion District in Downtown LA. For hipper, more affordable wares, spend a day on Melrose Avenue, where you may need to invest in an extra suitcase!
Shopping is hungry work, and when it comes to dining, Los Angeles offers a little bit of everything. From burgers at a local diner to five-star rooftop dining overlooking the lights, Los Angeles and its mix of people and cultures never disappoint in the food department. Dine with the stars at the hottest restaurants in Beverly Hills or enjoy fresh seafood down towards the waterfront.
After dinner, Downtown or Hollywood are the places to go for the hottest nightlife in LA. Hit the top-end clubs, some with a cool history of artists who got their start there, or catch local bands at venues along Hollywood Boulevard.
