Los Angeles Holidays

Where stars are made

From the Hollywood sign and Walt Disney Concert Hall to the Griffith Observatory, Los Angeles bursts with national treasures and must-see landmarks, making your trip one to remember.

Shop ‘til you drop on Rodeo Drive in Beverly Hills before sunning yourself on one of LA’s many beaches, including Santa Monica, Venice and Manhattan beach. Taste a cupcake from a vending machine, head to a rooftop bar and watch the sunset, hike the Hollywood Hills, catch a sports game at the Staples Center and show at LA LIVE; there is something for everyone in L.A. and the cities within Los Angeles are just waiting to entertain you.

If you’re after more of an adrenaline rush, head to one of Los Angeles’ many theme parks; from Disneyland® Resort and Universal Studios Hollywood™ to Knotts Berry Farm or the Ferris wheel on Santa Monica Pier, there’s a ride to suit all.

Centrally located in California, a trip to LA is perfectly paired with a drive up the scenic Highway 1 to San Francisco, or down to explore the charm of San Diego. You can even combine your trip with a stay in Las Vegas, located just four hours down the road, or what about the luxurious islands of Hawaii which is just a six-hour flight away. Why stick with one destination when you can visit more?

Top Tips from our Experts

Mel

Destination Specialist

"When you visit Universal Studios Hollywood™, upgrade to the VIP or front of line pass to skip the queues and make the most of your time at the park, it was well worth it."

Rozario

Destination Specialist

"To skip the much known LA traffic, ride the Metro system. We went from watching a basketball game at the Staples Center in downtown to Santa Monica beach so easily."
