Hollywood Boulevard is arguably L.A.’s most popular tourist attraction and not to be missed. The one-mile stretch is teeming with souvenir shops, museums, restaurants, bars, and the world-famous Walk of Fame. For more upscale shopping, check out Rodeo Drive and Robertson Boulevard, known for exclusive boutiques and providing regular celebrity sightings.

Attractions in Los Angeles aren’t all about shopping. For those more interested in a more panoramic view of the city, a leisurely ride along Mulholland Drive provides spectacular views of the San Fernando Valley, the Hollywood Bowl amphitheatre, and the iconic Hollywood sign. The drive also passes by Runyon Canyon, a gorgeous park with walking paths and hiking trails to suit casual and athletic visitors alike.

Although museums aren’t everybody’s cup of tea, a visit to Los Angeles would not be complete without a visit to the Getty Center. More than simply an art museum, the Getty is a feat of architecture situated on a high hill and requiring a tram ride to reach the entrance. The incredible museum is home to some world-class art, while also providing beautiful paths for strolling and excellent views of the valley below. Best of all, it’s completely free!

Los Angeles offers plenty of attractions to suit all tastes. From laid-back types who spend a day relaxing at The Grove or in Griffith Park to star-struck tourists who thirstily wander Beverly Hills hoping to spot their favorite celebrity, there is never a shortage of pleasant activities to while away the time in The City of Angels.
