Looking for a fun Spring getaway? Look no further than the City of Angels. Best known for great beaches, warm weather, and (of course) Hollywood, Los Angeles is a city that has so much to offer. From great architecture to iconic history to world-class food and shopping, now is a great time to check LA off that travel bucket list…especially with the extra savings from the Hotwire spring sale*.
Some of our favorite activities include:
- For film and history fans, vintage Hollywood is a must-see. Some classic attractions in the area include TCL Chinese Theatre and the Hollywood Walk of Fame, and Paramount Pictures, the only television and film studio left in Hollywood.
- If you’re looking to spend some time non-beach outdoor time, Griffith Park has everything you need. At 4,200-acres filled with more than 50 miles of hiking and biking trails and numerous waterfalls and lagoons ideal for a picnic or swim, it is the largest urban park in the country. If indoor activities are more your speed, you’ll still find a variety of attractions catering to visitors of all ages, including theLos Angeles Zoo and Botanical Gardens, the Autry National Center of the American West, the Travel Town Museum and of course, the Griffith Park and Observatory. Not to be missed, (pro tip: entry is free), the observatory hosts fascinating exhibitions and an awesome planetarium.
- Just west of downtown, Santa Monica contains one of the most legendary beach scenes in the US, tons of amazing restaurants and unparalleled people watching. With three miles of shoreline and an average of 340 days of sunshine a year, the area is perfect for walking, biking or lounging or just in the sand. Or, recreate a favorite Baywatch scene.
No matter what you choose to do there, for a sunny weekend excursion you really can’t go wrong with LA.
