If you want to make the most of your L.A. vacation, here are some of the best things to do when in Los Angeles:
- Santa Monica — For those who love amusement parks, there are few places in Los Angeles better for you than the Santa Monica pier! Here, you can walk down the historic boardwalk, take a whirl on one of the many rides, play games in the arcades, or have dinner at Bubba Gump Shrimp–the restaurant founded thanks to the movie Forrest Gump. Or, if you’d rather take it easy, sit in the sand and enjoy the waves and sun!
- Malibu — Few beaches in L.A. can compare to gorgeous Malibu! Here, you can relax in the sun, get your tan on, play beach sports, or take a dip in the ocean. You have a good chance of rubbing elbows with some of the celebrities who live in the nearby luxury homes! (Note: Malibu Beach is known for its tar deposits, which can stain your feet. Bring baby oil to help you clean your skin after the beach.)
- Disneyland –– How could anyone come all the way to Los Angeles without stopping in at Disneyland? The Magical Kingdom is open all year long, and there is more to see and do than you could possibly fit into a weekend or three. Definitely a wonderful place to spend your holidays with your family.
- Wondercon — For those with a geekier bent, the Anaheim Convention Center across from Disneyland hosts Wondercon every year. This comic book convention is one of the largest in California (second only to San Diego Comic Con), and it’s a great place to get your geek on!
For those visiting Los Angeles, these are the activities to consider.
