Los Angeles - The "City of Angels"
The positioning of LA to the Pacific means you benefit from seemingly perpetual sunshine, idyllic beaches and even whale spotting expeditions. Santa Monica takes centre stage and is the hub of the action with a busy beach and bright pier dotted, boasting an array of food stalls and shops. Third Street Promenade and Santa Monica Place Mall are located close by and offer respite from sunning yourself on the sands.
Take the Los Angeles holiday Grand Tour and see all the famous sights. You'll visit the birthplace of LA at Olvera Street and see well-known locations you'll recognize from TV and movies. No city in the world has a more colorful and sordid history than Hollywood and nowhere else have so many famous (and infamous) people moved over to the "other side".
If you're a regular holidaymaker, take advantage of one of the many frequent flyer schemes offered by the major airlines. You may find you get some free flights as a thank you for flying with them often.
Tourists can get into the city by bus or taxi, with a journey time of around 30 minutes. You're then only minutes away from all that Los Angeles has to offer.
Downtown LA is more of a commercial district of skyscraper office blocks than a shopping district. You will find shopping in the form of small shopping plazas and larger shopping malls dotted all over the LA basin.
