Los Angeles, the city of famous Hollywood actors, surfers, artists, and year-round sunshine is also the second largest city in the United States. Experience the glamour of the Hollywood neighborhood, take a stroll down the Hollywood Walk of Fame for the famous terrazzo and brass stars of the most accomplished actors in US history, or sunbathe till you have that tan look on Venice Beach. Los Angeles is a dynamic, culturally rich city blessed with beautiful mountains, blue waters, and perfect weather. Getting around Los Angeles can be overwhelming due to its huge congested network of motorways, but once you get used to it, you have the freedom to explore the city in your rented car.

What to see in Los Angeles

Hollywood Boulevard has undergone some renovations in recent years. Enjoy street performances on the Walk of Fame and visit Grauman's Chinese Theatre to see the handprints and footprints of many celebrities. Take a cultural trip to Getty Museum, one of the largest art organizations in the world, which sits on the hilltop of Santa Monica Mountains and offers panoramic views of Los Angeles, stretching out to the Pacific Ocean on a clear day. The museum itself captures visitors' attention with its fascinating art exhibits, uncommon garden, and extraordinary architecture.

For a bit of fresh air, visit the second largest park in the US, Griffith Park. In addition to the vast open space for picnicking and hiking, the park is also home to the Space Observatory, a golf course, Autry Western Museum, and the LA Zoo. Los Angeles has over 70 miles of coastline, so don't limit yourself to only Venice Beach or Santa Monica Pier. You'll find street performers, food trucks, surfers, skaters, and all sorts of water sports on a typical sunny day.
