If you have always dreamt of strolling down Rodeo Drive and living your Pretty Woman moment, then now is the perfect time to pack your suitcase and head to L.A for a vacation. Los Angeles is full of fun, free and fancy activities that you will remember for a lifetime. Ticking off your bucket list of activities in L.A is one of the best decisions you’ll make this summer, so consider some of the seven things you could experience really soon!
1. Venice Beach
The home of beautiful people, bodybuilders and L.A. locals, Venice Beach is a must-do activity if you’re visiting Los Angeles. Relax and unwind in the beautiful sun-soaked atmosphere as you catch a tan or sneak a peek at the muscly locals at Muscle Beach. Opt for a nearby Venice Beach hotel so that you can spend your entire day relaxing, eating good food and taking scenic strolls along the sand.
2. Hike Runyon Canyon
This is one of the most Instagrammable spots in L.A and you’ve probably seen a number of celebrities doing this hike. Taking a break from the busy city life is often much-needed to soak in the views and get some exercise in too!
3. Snap a Selfie With the Hollywood Sign
You can’t visit L.A without taking a picture with the famous Hollywood Sign, one of the most famous landmarks of the entire city. You may have to view the sign from a distance as the hiking trail surrounding the sign has been closed for a number of years.
4. Check Out Rodeo Drive
Home to some of the most expensive stores in the city, this is your chance to relive that famous movie moment. Don’t worry, you can just window shop if your budget doesn’t quite reach the exclusivity of these stores!
5. Have a Day of Fun at Santa Monica Pier
Ride on the ferris wheel or relive your childhood on the carousel during a fun filled day or night at Santa Monica Pier. Located at the very end of the famous Route ‘66 you’ll be greeted with a whole host of exciting roller coaster rides and classic arcade games. There are also a number of concerts staged and Santa Monica Pier if you get your timings just right!
6. Walk of Fame
Discover your favourite actors and stars as you wander the lengths of the Hollywood Walk of Fame. Take the classic picture standing next to a celebrity’s handprints and see how closely they match to your own!
7. Experience Sunset Boulevard
One of the glitziest areas of Los Angeles is the stunning Boulevant on Sunset. The glamorous nightlife and vibrant atmosphere is something you will never forget. Surrounded by neon lights and dazzling billboards, you will find a number of ideal photo opportunities when you pay a visit to this iconic place in Los Angeles.
