Los Angeles is known for its mild weather and sunny skies. Be sure to pack a light jacket because it gets cool in the evenings. The NBA season is in full swing, so head to the Staples Center to catch LeBron James in action as a Laker.
If basketball isn’t your thing, there is still lots to do. Make your way to Runyon Canyon Park for a scenic hike. Make your way to the top to take in one of the best views of L.A. and the world famous Hollywood Sign. Don’t forget your camera as you may spot a celebrity or two while on the trail. For even more of a challenge take on the steps at the Griffith Observatory at the Baldwin Hills Observatory. You will surely feel accomplished after conquering them.
If you are looking for more touristy things, then head to the Hollywood Walk of Fame. Scope out your favorite entertainer’s star and snap a picture. Or you can head to Beverly Hills area to see how the rich and famous live.
The great thing about Los Angeles is that you can hike and still go lay out at a beach all in the same day. Muscle beach is where you will find all of the action, from buff bodybuilders getting in a workout to people running pickup games of basketball on the courts.
No trip to Los Angeles is complete without indulging at some of the country’s best restaurants.
