Cool City In The US

Los Angeles is definitely one of the coolest cities in the US. Famous for its entertainment industry and great all-year-round climate, LA is all about glamor and diversity. The growing culinary scene is awesome and there are numerous museums, art galleries, parks, and shopping malls worth visiting. What I truly love about LA is the fact that public transportation is well-organized and you can get from one place to the other in no time. I always like to rent a bike and explore the cities top tourist attractions. This way I get to save a few bikes and riding a bike is always super fun.

Cool Landmarks

If you are in the city for the first time, make sure to check out some of the most popular landmarks and attractions. Head out to the famous Getty Center that houses an amazing collection of drawings, sculpture, paintings, decorative arts, and 20th-century photography. For panoramic views of the city, go to the Griffith Observatory and Park. It is famous for its Zeiss telescope and you will get a chance to see different planets and the moon. No visit to Los Angeles is complete without exploring the greatest working movie studio and a theme park in the world, Universal Studios Hollywood. Guided tours of the Paramount Pictures and Warner Bros studios are available. I really liked that you can check out the sets from cool shows and movies including the amazing hit from the 80’s “Back to the Future”.

City of Fame

Dedicated to some of the most popular Hollywood stars, the Walk of Fame is also one of the must-see attractions in LA. The tradition started back in the 60’s and today there are over 2,500 stars including actors, musicians, producers, directors, and others on the Hollywood’s Walk of Fame. If you are into art, don’t forget to visit the Los Angeles County Museum of Art. It is the largest art museum on the West Coast and is home to more than 12,000 pieces of Islamic, Asian, and Latin American Art. In case you want to chill in the sun, I suggest going to one of my favorite places in the world, Santa Monica Pier. Yes, it’s usually crowded with tourists, but I am a sucker for the giant Ferris wheel.

City of Chill Angels

When you think of LA, you probably think of chilling on the beach and watching surfers ride those waves. Go to the Venice Beach and explore its long boardwalk which is always crowded with street performers. If you are a romantic at heart, make sure to visit the lovely El Matador Beach. It is famous for its hidden caves rocky shores and crystal clear waters. Los Angeles is an amazing city and the great thing is that the weather is always awesome here. It would take you at least a week to check out all the cool places in the city, but everyone who has even been here will tell you that it’s totally worth it.
