The city of Angels is known for its cinema, its red carpet and its celebrities. In addition to being a city filled with art and entertainment, Los Angeles is a multi-faceted city. The city is huge (70km North to South, 1,300km 2 area) and you will always have something to see and do. Here is a selection of our favorite places.

WHAT TO DO
To be a Los Angeles Insider The Downtown District is the dynamic and financial district of the city. Some historical must stops are The Bradbury Building and the Last BookStore. In contrast, for more rest, we recommend chilling on the canals of Venice beach. On the outskirts of Los Angeles, the small town of Pasadena has many vintage shops and an atypical charm. If you have the chance to go there the second Sunday of the month, do not leave without having a chance to visit the Rose Bowl Flea Market, you will find many hidden gems and vintage wonders.
The last bookstore
You cannot leave the City of Angels without seeing the Walk of Fame and Hollywood Sign closely. It is recommended to climb Runyon Canon Park (very popular for the locals) to get a view of the whole city. Griffith Park is another location for it’s view and historical past within in the entertainment industry. The Walt Disney Concert Hall and Universal Studios are the places for the entertainment lovers. Beach side, Malibu is the paradise of peace, love and surfing. Santa Monica and Venice Beach are the perfect stops to enjoy a sunny day of rest year around.
The Walt Disney Concert Hall
Los Angeles is not just about Hollywood studios and the Sunny beach life. The city also has some of the best museums in the United States that makes Los Angeles shine bright on another cultural level.
- LACMA is by far our favorite museum. LACMA illustrates the history of art from the Antiquity to the present day. The LACMA in Los Angeles is what the Louvre is in Paris: a place not to be missed under any circumstances. The famous Urban Light of Chris Burden is a must see.
Carlos Almaraz - Echo Park Lake, no. 1 to 4
Jean Dubuffet - The effacement of Memories
- The Getty Museum opens the doors of Jean Paul Getty's collection. Of all the museum's collections, those devoted to European painting and the decorative arts are our favorites. In addition to being a fascinating museum , the building boasts incredible architecture, relaxing gardens and 180-degree views of the city of Los Angeles.
- The Broad of Downtown Created in 2015, this museum has the first benefit of being free. More than 2,000 contemporary pieces of art are exhibited like those of Jean-Michel Basquiat, Andy Wharol and Jeff Koons. The best of the best can be seen there.
Jean-Michel Basquiat - Obnoxious Liberals
Walk along Santa Monica and Venice Beach, you’ll see California skaters skate along the pier and skateparks. It is recommended that you attend a game of the local sports teams, the Dodgers or Lakers to be immersed in American culture, an atmosphere of guaranteed madness. Finally, horseback riding is great for exploring the heart of the California hills and getting lost in the breathtaking view.
