Los Angeles

Explore the beaches

Personally I found Laguna Beach, Huntington Beach and Newport Beach to be the best.

Venice Beach is what you’ll see most in the movies and TV but in reality I found it pretty average. It’s also home to Muscle Beach outdoor gym.

I think what I disliked most about it was that by American standards the vendors along the beach were super pushy. However despite this, there are lots of fellow tourists, skateboarders and ย the vibe is still worth checking out.

Consider taking in a show at the Dolby Theatre

Previously the Kodak Theatre, this is where the Hollywood celebs will be found at major events such as the Academy Awards. When I was there I saw a Cirque du Soleil show (Iris) and you’ll find many people shoving flyers in your face the day of each show offering reasonably priced tickets.
