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  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.
