One of the largest municipal parks in the United States, Griffith Park offers a welcome escape from L.A. traffic. In addition to acres of hilly trails and green spaces, the park is home to a broad array of fun-filled attractions, from the Los Angeles Zoo to the outdoor Greek Theatre.

It’s also the location of one of the city’s most iconic landmarks: the Griffith Observatory. Built in 1935, the beautiful Art Deco complex boasts dozens of engaging exhibits, an out-of-this-world planetarium and multiple telescopes available for public use. A visit to the observatory at dusk offers views of stars emerging in the sky above and the twinkling lights of the city below.

#1 of Tourist Attractions In Los Angeles

Tobacco magnate Abbot Kinney gets the credit for transforming a marshy stretch of shoreline south of Santa Monica into the “Venice of America.” In 1904, Kinney turned a series of drainage channels into scenic canals and constructed a Venetian-inspired arcade on the beach.

While the canals remain one of the community’s top tourist attractions in Los Angeles, most visitors head for the beach’s world-famous boardwalk where eccentric street performers compete with shops, stalls and food stands for attention. The beach’s volleyball courts, skating plaza and body-building Muscle Beach area are crowd-pleasers as well.

The top 24 things to do in Los Angeles: experience the best of LA

Friends roller skating on the boardwalk in Venice Beach - Santa Monica promenade - Los Angeles, USA

The playground of the rich and famous, ruggedly good-looking Los Angeles is brimming with incredible things to do.

Home to Hollywood, this is a city where fantastical dreams are encouraged; a place gleefully wrapped in endless layers of modern legend and mythology. It’s also indelibly tied to mighty Mother Nature, and is filled with cultural riches – no other American city delivers such a thrilling mash-up of architectural styles, statements, and role models. Here are the best experiences and activities for your trip to La La Land.

Experience the magic of Venice Boardwalk

As far as LA experiences go, the famous Venice Boardwalk, officially known as Ocean Front Walk, is a must. It’s alive with hula-hoop magicians, skaters, old-timey jazz combos, solo distorted garage rockers, and artists – both good and bad.

The Sunday drum circle draws hundreds of revelers for tribal jamming and spontaneous dancing on the grassy mounds. Don’t miss the tagged-up towers and the free-standing concrete wall, forever open to aerosol Picassos. Venice Beach is where SoCal’s crazier side lets it all hang out. It’s like one long, skunk-scented runway of eccentricity, flanked by soaring palms, tattoo parlors, and street art.

Get a dose of art and culture at the Getty Center

A cultural citadel in the sky, The Getty Center delivers highs, both literal and metaphorical. Firstly there’s that soul-lifting panorama, which takes in hillside mansions, the Pacific Ocean and the unapologetic sprawl of the LA basin.

This billion-dollar art museum showcases centuries of glorious creativity, from medieval triptychs to starry Van Gogh skies. Then there are the showstopping gardens, punctuated with blazing flowers, world-famous sculptures and trickling water. Best of all, it’s completely free, except for parking.

Be welcomed by hippie-chic Santa Monica

Santa Monica is LA’s cute, alluring, hippie-chic little sister. It’s a place where real-life Lebowskis sip White Russians next to martini-swilling Hollywood producers, celebrity chefs dine at family-owned taquerias, and soccer parents and career bachelors shop at abundant farmers markets. All the while, kids, out-of-towners, and those who love them flock to wide beaches and the pier, where the landmark solar-powered Ferris wheel and rollercoaster welcome one and all.

Celebrate Mexican–American history at LA Plaza de Cultura y Artes

La Plaza de Cultura y Artes, aka LA Plaza, is a fascinating museum celebrating the role Mexicans, Mexican Americans and all Latinx have in shaping the past, present, and future of Los Angeles. From Spanish colonization in the late 18th century and the Mexican–American War (when the border crossed the original pueblo) to the Zoot Suit Riots, activist César Chávez and the Chicana movement, there’s a rich history here to explore. Exhibitions include a child-friendly re-creation of 1920s Main Street, as well as rotating showcases of modern and contemporary art by LA-based Latinx artists. It’s not far from the Mexican market on Olvera Street in Downtown.

Find the footprints of the famous in Hollywood

No other corner of LA is steeped in as much mythology as Hollywood. It’s here that you’ll find the Hollywood Walk of Fame, the Capitol Records Tower and the gloriously kitsch TCL Chinese Theatre, where the hand- and footprints of entertainment deities are immortalized in concrete. Despite the tourist hordes and gimmicks, the ghosts of Hollywood’s golden age live on in the mid-century makeup rooms of the Hollywood Museum and the vintage booths of time-warped Musso & Frank Grill.

Look beyond the tourist-swamped landmarks of Hollywood Blvd and you’ll discover a nuanced, multifaceted neighborhood of sometimes gritty streets punctuated by edgy galleries and boutiques. This is where strip malls hide swinging French bistros and where steep, sleepy lanes harbor the homes of long-gone silver-screen stars.

Go on a movie studio tour

LA is the world’s movie-making capital, and snooping around its famous studios is one of the city’s most idiosyncratic experiences. Top billing goes to Warner Bros, home to the biggest set-construction project in studio history, as well as a booty of Batmobiles.

Filmmaking and theme-park thrills join forces at Universal Studios, while Hollywood itself is home to Paramount Pictures, America’s second-oldest studio and the very site on which classic movies such Breakfast at Tiffany’s (1961), Grease (1978), and TV series Happy Days were shot.

Accept an Oscar at the Academy Museum of Motion Pictures

The Academy Museum of Motion Pictures opened in LA at the end of September 2021 to celebrate cinema’s rich past, present, and future. Collection highlights include Dorothy’s ruby slippers from the 1939 movie The Wizard of Oz and an extraterrestrial headpiece worn in Alien (1979). The three-floor exhibition, Stories of Cinema, looks at the works of narrative and documentary moviemakers and the impact their stories have had on the world. You can even give your own Oscar speech at the Oscars Experience. The museum has two theaters – the 1000-seat David Geffen Theater and the 288-seat Ted Mann Theater.

An aerial view of Griffith Observatory in Los Angeles

Visit the iconic Griffith Observatory

With eyes on both the galaxy above and palm-flanked boulevards below, Griffith Observatory hovers above LA like a hulking spacecraft. This is one of the city’s true icons, an art deco behemoth flaunted on both the small and silver screen.

Yet the place is more than its architectural good looks and epic panoramas, with spectacular planetarium shows, intriguing exhibits, and handsome murals. The 1935 observatory has sweeping views, which take in LA’s skyscrapers and mansions, endless avenues, rugged hills and, of course, the Hollywood sign.

See contemporary and modern art at The Broad

In just a few short years, Downtown’s Broad has put culture vultures in a spin. The building itself, designed by the team behind Manhattan’s High Line, is a jaw-dropping, lattice-work behemoth that looks like something straight out of the 22nd century. The museum’s packed with pop-art paintings, video art, installations, and sculpture from big guns such as Andy Warhol, Robert Rauschenberg, Keith Haring, and Cindy Sherman, as well as bold, poptastic artworks by Japanese artist, Takashi Murakami.

Register in advance to experience Yayoi Kusama’s super-popular Infinity Mirrored Room, and enjoy the galleries, which rotate works from the Broad’s permanent collection, considered one of the world’s most prominent holdings of postwar and contemporary artworks.

Celebrate queer culture across the city

LA’s queer residents have made many significant contributions to American culture. LA Pride is the city’s main LGBTIQIA+ celebration and is held in mid-June with three days of music, exhibitions and a fabulous parade down Santa Monica Blvd. The rainbow flag flies especially proudly in Boystown, which is flanked by dozens of high-energy bars, cafes, restaurants, gyms and clubs, but queer pride permeates the city.

The Gay Men’s Chorus of Los Angeles puts on full-on shows with singing, dancing, costumes and heart to rival any professional show in town. The choir breaks boundaries of men’s choral music with consistently inventive repertoires and Broadway-style staging with professional-quality costumes, sets, and dancing.

Have a thrill ride at Six Flags Amusement Parks

Velocity is king at Six Flags Magic Mountain, the ultimate rollercoaster park, where you can go up, down and inside-out in ways only Space-X can outdo. The park’s world-record 19 rollercoasters include the aptly named Scream, but there are plenty of tamer rides for the elementary-school set in the park’s Bugs Bunny World, plus shows, parades, and concerts to keep everyone entertained.

Next to Magic Mountain is the jungle-themed, 22-acre Six Flags Hurricane Harbor water park, where you can chill in a tropical lagoon, brave churning wave pools, and plunge down wicked high-speed slides with names like Bonzai Pipelines and Taboo Tower.

Be intrigued by Downtown LA

Rapidly evolving, this is the City of Angels’ most intriguing patch. It’s the historic center and is rapidly gentrifying, a place where cutting-edge architecture and world-class modern-art museums bump up the oldest and largest Mexican community outside of Mexico. New condos and hotels are sprouting like mushrooms in Downtown LA, joined by buzz-inducing eateries, bars, boutiques, and galleries, all connected by bus and rail transit.

It’s here that you’ll find the space-age Broad museum and Walt Disney Concert Hall, which provide dramatic counterpoints to the crumbling opulence of Broadway theaters, the Spanish curves of historic Olvera St, and the hulking warehouses of the booming Arts District.

People walk along a hiking trail at Runyon Canyon Park in the Hollywood Hills

Stroll or run through Runyon Canyon

A shrub-draped cut in the Hollywood Hills, Runyon Canyon is a 130-acre public park as famous for its buff runners and exercising celebrities as it is for the panoramic views from the upper ridge. Follow the wide, partially paved road up then take the smaller track down to the canyon, where you’ll pass the remains of the Runyon estate.

Morning yoga sessions are held Mondays, Wednesdays, and Fridays in the park (suggested donation $5). Best of all, it’s less than a one-mile walk from Hollywood/Highland station on the Metro Red Line, making it an easy urban escape.

Tour the art collections at LACMA

Los Angeles County Museum of Art is an obligatory stop for culture vultures. The largest art museum in the western US, its 100,000-plus works stretch back to antiquity and include millennia’s worth of Chinese, Japanese, pre-Columbian, and ancient Greek, Roman, and Egyptian sculpture.

You’ll find one of the world’s finest collections of Islamic art, works by heavyweights such as Cassatt, Rivera, Hockney, and Hepworth, as well as LA sculptor Chris Burden’s crowd-stopping installation Urban Light. And it doesn’t stop there, with buzz-worthy touring exhibits, film screenings, readings, and Friday-night art classes.

Designed by Frank Gehry the silver exterior of the Walt Disney Concert Hall

Go to a show at Walt Disney Concert Hall

LA’s answer to Sydney’s Opera House and London’s Royal Albert Hall, the 2265-seat auditorium Walt Disney Concert Hall demands its own standing ovation. Straight out of the mind of Pritzker Prize-winning architect Frank Gehry, its undulating steel forms evoke the movement of music itself.

This iconic concert venue is the home base of the Los Angeles Philharmonic, but has also hosted contemporary bands and classic jazz musicians. Free, self-guided audio tours are available most days, and there are also 90-minute docent-led tours, which take you into each of the Music Center’s four theaters. The best way to experience the hall, though, is to see a show.

Hike a trail through the Santa Monica Mountains

A haven for hikers, trekkers, and mountain bikers, the northwestern-most stretch of the Santa Monica Mountains is where nature gets bigger and wilder, with jaw-dropping red-rock canyons and granite outcrops with sublime sea views. The best trails are in Pacific Palisades, Topanga, and Malibu.

The Backbone Trail is the longest trail in the range, linking – and accessible from – every state park. It’s 67 miles all told, running from Will Rogers to Point Mugu State Park, and can be completed in a few days.

Snap a shot of the world-famous Hollywood Sign

Have you even visited LA if you haven’t posted an Instagram pic with the famous Hollywood sign in the background? Erected in 1923, it’s one of the most iconic landmarks in LA, and it’s possible to view it from many vantage points throughout the city.

These various vistas not only provide postcard-perfect backdrops for your vacation photos, but also involve some of the city’s most popular hiking routes. One of the best viewing spots is at the Hollywood & Highland Center, which is filled with plenty of popular restaurants and the Dolby Theater, home to the Academy Awards.

Be inspired by rare texts at Huntington Library

The Huntington Library is rightly a highlight of any trip to California thanks to a world-class mix of art, literary history and over 120 acres of themed gardens, all set amid stately grounds. One of the most delightful, inspirational spots in LA, the library’s hefty collection includes extraordinary rare works, from a manuscript of Geoffrey Chaucer’s classic Canterbury Tales to books by globe-trotting mavericks Marco Polo and Christopher Columbus. There’s so much to see and do that it’s hard to know where to begin, so allow three to four hours for even a basic visit.

A mammoth sculpture in La Brea Tar Pits in Los Angeles

Make prehistoric discoveries at La Brea Tar Pits

You’ll be hurled back to prehistoric LA at the La Brea Tar Pits, bubbling up from deep beneath Wilshire Blvd. The only active, urban ice-age excavation site in the world, it was here that thousands of creatures perished between 40,000 and 10,000 years ago, unwittingly mired in the pits.

Fossils from the pits are showcased at the on-site museum, offering insight into the myriad quirky creatures that once roamed the LA Basin, from the Columbian mammoth to the Harlan’s ground sloth. Paleontologists continue to make discoveries at the site, and visitors can meet with these scientists in the Fossil Lab to understand what happens after excavation. Learn more about when mammoths and dire wolves wandered LA with a 3-D screening of the film Titans of the Ice Age.

Follow the Wildflower Trail in Elysian Park

Across the street from Echo Park and nearby Dodger Stadium is LA’s oldest park: Elysian Park. Founded in 1886, it is big and beautiful, boasting iconic palm tree groves, open grassy areas, ball fields, tennis courts, and even a dog hill for canine visitors.

For hikers, the Wildflower Trail here clocks in at just under three miles and less than 200ft in elevation, making it one of the easiest ways to get a glimpse of a variety of beautiful wildflowers. Wildflower Trail offers views of downtown, the LA River and the back of Mount Washington, as well the pleasant setting of a community garden.

Be dazzled at the Museum of Neon Art (MONA)

Neon signage is a defining element of LA’s cityscape, and the collection at this small-ish museum in the heart of Glendale includes legendary pieces from establishments including the (departed) Brown Derby, Pep Boys auto-repair shops, and the Chinese Theatre. The Museum of Neon Art is devoted exclusively to art in electric media, exhibiting electric and kinetic fine art, and examples of historic neon signs for over three decades.

Besides permanent and temporary exhibits of signage and other light art, the museum holds Neon Night Walks and Neon Cruises on open-topped double-decker buses to see works around town up close.

Have some retail therapy on Rodeo Drive

It might be pricey and unapologetically pretentious, but no trip to LA would be complete without a saunter along Rodeo Drive, the famous three-block ribbon of style in Beverly Hills where you can embark on your very own Pretty Woman shopping spree (“Big mistake. Huge. “). Fashion retailer Fred Hayman opened the strip’s first luxury boutique – Giorgio Beverly Hills – at number 273 back in 1961.

If you’re looking for something a little less demanding on your wallet, head to the shopping mall, Americana at Brand. It feels like an extended walking street with an 18-screen multiplex, some 30 restaurants and food stalls, and some very good – albeit very corporate – shopping.

A crowd in front of the stage at the Hollywood Bowl

Spend a summer’s evening at the Hollywood Bowl

Summers in LA just wouldn’t be the same without alfresco melodies under the stars at the Hollywood Bowl, a huge natural amphitheater in the Hollywood Hills. Its annual season – which usually runs from June to September – includes symphonies, jazz bands, and iconic acts, and big projection screens ensure that even folks in the “nosebleed” sections enjoy close-ups of the performers.

Go early to claim a table in the park-like grounds for a preshow picnic – there are numerous food stands on-site if you don’t want to lug your own grub. The venue is the summer home of the LA Philharmonic and Hollywood Bowl Orchestra, and open rehearsals are held on some Tuesdays and Thursdays during the season.

Spot a celeb on the red carpet

LA has its fair share of screen stars, and you’ll probably spot someone trying to blend in at Wholefoods, or Blue Star Donuts on Abbot Kinney. However, the Academy Awards night gathers a constellation together in one place in March/April every year and fans can ogle the stars from bleachers outside the Dolby Theatre on Tinseltown’s biggest night. Apply to the Oscars Red Carpet Fan Experience in November or December for one of around 700 lucky spots.
