Los Angeles, California

For much of the globe, the stereotypical perception of Los Angeles is one of a superficial city populated by movie stars, plastic surgeons and towering palms. But Angelenos know the entertainment capital of the world is much more than that. From its glorious natural surroundings and world-class tourist attractions to ethnic neighborhoods with their own unique character, L.A. is a wildly stimulating, very real city where fantasy just happens to be the signature export.

Essentials

Step aboard an automated tram for a short ride up to the Getty Center (1200 Getty Center Dr.), a spectacular billion-dollar complex in the foothills of the Santa Monica mountains noted for the extensive art collection of the J. Paul Getty Museum and panoramic views (on a clear day) of Los Angeles from its travertine-clad terraces. Make this one of the first things to do when you arrive to get an impressive lay of the land.

Top Picks for Kids

Hollywood's grand old El Capitan Theatre (6838 Hollywood Blvd.), opened in 1926, is the spot to take kiddies to the latest blockbuster. Afterward, little ones can meet costumed characters, usually those from the flick they just saw. Next door at Disney Studio Store and Ghirardelli Soda Fountain Chocolate Shop (6834 Hollywood Blvd.), kid-friendly fare (think hot dogs, grilled cheese and milk shakes) fills the menu while the store sells souvenirs.

Shopping

When you don't know what to do in L.A., you can always shop. Welcome to one of the world's premiere shopping cities, where trendy high-end fashion (Rodeo Drive) and souvenir Oscar statuettes (Hollywood Boulevard) are just the tip of the iceberg. Urban sprawl means that shopping in an often traffic-clogged town like Los Angeles requires a bit of planning; allow plenty of time in your itinerary to get from one shopping destination to another. When it comes to shopping experiences that are uniquely L.A., we recommend Beverly Hills, Hollywood, Pasadena, the beach cities and downtown itself.
