The City of Angels is calling you! If you’re in the mood for a warm climate, then a trip to L.A. is just what you need. There are tons of things to do in Los Angeles from the heart of the city on the Hollywood Walk of Fame to the coast on Santa Monica Pier. The Griffith Observatory provides a great view of L.A. and the famous Hollywood sign, and you’re never too far away from Disneyland and Universal Studios. Grauman's Chinese Theatre, where celebrities have immortalized their handprints in cement, is a popular tourist spot for the newcomers, and there are lots of fun bars and shops on Hollywood Boulevard as well. You should check out the Getty Center while you’re in town or tour Paramount Pictures Studios for a behind-the-scenes look at film production. As the home of movies, Los Angeles is also the birthplace of many stars, including: Ben Affleck, Jennifer Aniston, Jeff Bridges, Miley Cyrus, Leonardo DiCaprio, Zooey Deschanel, Harrison Ford, and more!
L.A. is one of the hottest cities in the country for concerts. Many record companies are headquartered there like Capitol Records and A&M Records, and Los Angeles has long been important in the history of music. The Sunset Strip was a vital spot for bands like The Doors, The Beach Boys, and The Byrds in the 1960s, and venues like Whisky a Go Go and the Roxy Theatre are still popular spots for up-and-coming artists today. In the 1970s, a decent punk movement spread throughout L.A. with bands like Black Flag and Wasted Youth, which later evolved into the rock scene of Van Halen, Metallica, Guns N Roses, Motley Crue, and the Red Hot Chili Peppers. Hip-hop is also strongly rooted on the West Coast, breeding such rappers as Dr. Dre, Tupac, Snoop Dogg, and Ice Cube. Many clubs within Los Angeles are historic as well like the Hollywood Bowl, The Wiltern, The Greek Theater, Los Angeles Music Center, and The Majestic Ventura Theatre. Many modern acts hail from this great city, including: Incubus, Megadeth, No Doubt, The Black Eyed Peas, the Eagles, Jane’s Addiction, Frank Zappa, Linkin Park, Maroon 5, Weezer, and Slayer. For major acts, check out the lineups at The Walt Disney Concert Hall and Dolby Theatre, two renowned venues, famous for hosting the Los Angeles Philharmonic and the Oscars, respectively.
Nicknamed the “Creative Capital of the World,” Los Angeles has many actors and actresses in its residence. Theater, therefore, is a major industry, and the performing arts are an integral part of the city. (L.A. is the host of the annual Academy Awards after all.) There are over 1,100 theatrical productions per year and approximately 21 openings every week. Touring productions of Broadway shows and local performances routinely play at the Pantages Theater, Fred Kavli Theatre, Fox Performing Arts Center, Ahmanson Theater, La Mirada Theatre, and the Saban Theater. The Center Theatre Group is one of the largest theatre companies in the nation, drawing on a pool of talent from the prestigious Colburn School and the University of Southern California Thornton School of Music. The Los Angeles Opera puts on high-class events as well as the Los Angeles Ballet, so if you’re looking for a premier performance, L.A. has plenty to choose from.
With 22 championships under their belt, Los Angeles is no stranger to professional sports. The L.A. area has two MLB teams – the Dodgers, who have won six World Series, and the Anaheim Angels, who have only won one. The Freeway Series is a popular rivalry between the two teams, which takes its name from a local interstate that connects Dodger Stadium and Angels Stadium. Los Angeles has two NBA teams as well – the Lakers and Clippers. Games for both teams can be seen at the Staples Center. Lakers tickets are hot sellers though, so if you’re planning on seeing a Lakers game while you’re in town, get your seats fast! Similar to baseball, the L.A. NHL teams – the Kings and the Anaheim Ducks – play in a yearly Freeway Face-Off. The Kings play their home games at the Staples Center, while the Ducks play at the Honda Center. If you want to witness some competition off the ice, L.A. has an MLS team as well called the Galaxy who play at the StubHub Center. So gear up for some epic L.A. sporting events because they are one talented city!
All in all, Los Angeles is one of the hottest cities in the country, literally. From the sculptural wonders of the Watts Towers to the glamorous shopping experience on Rodeo Drive, there is always something to do in L.A. Tourists must take a stroll on Venice Beach and bask in its eccentric population. There are many famous bars that writers like Bukowski have frequented as well as hotels like The Roosevelt, which is famous for its former inhabitant, Marilyn Monroe. If you’re a music lover, you must go to Amoeba Records in Hollywood, the largest indie record store in the country. But if you’re looking for something strange, check out the Museum of Death or the L. Ron Hubbard Life Exhibition. And when you get hungry, hit up In N’ Out for the best fast food burger you’ll eat all year.
