Los Angeles Holidays
One of the key focal points of the West Cost, Los Angeles is where city-chic and California soul combine with a sprinkling of Hollywood magic. On a Los Angeles holiday you’ll start racking up your count of classic pop culture institutions as you pass one iconic attraction after another. Go behind the scenes or see blockbuster movies come alive with incredible 3D rides at the renowned film studios that make their home in the LA valley. Saunter down Rodeo Drive, the city’s premier designer shopping spot, and ‘do lunch’ at a street-side café as you succumb to the Beverly Hills highlife. The Walk of Fame, the Hollywood sign, Venice Beach, the Sunset Strip, the Hollywood Bowl… the list goes on. Needless to say there’s so much to discover and Flight Centre can help you see it all.

Getting Round Los Angeles
Due to its size, most tourists choose to navigate LA by car. And it’s not a bad choice – in fact, having a rental can be handy if you’re visiting as part of a bigger trip of California, or are planning to use the city as a base for exploring places nearby. But with more cars than people in the City of Angels, if you have the option to use public transport or navigate on foot then do so: your life will be a lot easier. And there are plenty of options to get you from A to B – most notably the new Metro Rail line connects Downton LA, Hollywood, Culver City, Pasadena and Santa Monica.
When to Go to Los Angeles
You know that Californian stereotype? Blazing sun, bikinis, roller blading on the beachfront? Well LA is where this comes to life. The city and its environs benefit from year-round UV, beautiful blooms and abundant attractions. So when should you go? If you’re flexible with time, you can always time your visit to one of LA’s exciting events or festivals such as Independence Day in July, the Santa Clarita Cowboy Festival in April or the Academy Awards in March.
