Yes, there’s Hollywood, goat yoga, Chinatown, whale-watching, and many more activities and places you just can’t afford to miss. In this list, we’ve rounded up our favourite sights and sounds that you should experience with your own eyes.
Find a Souvenir in the Rose Bowl Flea Market
Never come back from LA with a rusty souvenir from some old shop on Hollywood boulevard. Instead, hunt for a hidden treasure at the Rose Bowl Flea market, an elaborate flea market that extends all over Pasadena’s Rose Bowl Stadium once every month. In this flea market, you’ll find unique clothing articles, vintage furniture, boho hippie wares, records, and much more. And this is not all, and you can expect a lot more from an almost 50-year-old market. So don’t forget to bring your bags, cause you won’t be able to resist the temptation of buying extraordinary things you’ll find in this market.
Admire the Beauty of Majestic Whales
Sure, you’ve enjoyed your time at the best beaches in Los Angeles, but have you ever actually ventured into the tumultuous waters of the pacific? With Los Angeles whale watching, you get an exciting opportunity to experience the true beauty of the pacific. Not to mention the marine life that is hidden under the surface of the ocean. And when you are on a whale-watching cruise, you’ll get a detailed and comprehensive description of the whales, dolphins, and other marine life that is hidden to the human eye. All these reasons make it a perfect LA adventure you can’t afford to miss out on.
Watch a Flick at Cinespia
Don’t be alarmed by the famous night movie spot in LA. Found in the prestigious Hollywood Forever Cemetery, the final resting place of Jayne Mansfield, Cecil B. Demille, and George Harrison, this outdoor movie place is a perfect place to spend your weekend. Gather all your loved ones – don’t forget to bring snacks and a blanket – and enjoy watching Hollywood’s classic thrillers.
Bask in Nature’s Glory
When you are in LA, hiking is a ritual you must perform. Sure, most people do it for more obvious reasons – workout, magnificent natural views, to break the monotony of life. And people like us do it for other reasons – to click photos and share them on social media and find a celebrity. So, if you are looking for an exciting way to spend your day in LA, hiking can solve this issue for you. Check out Brush Canyon Trail, Hollyridge Trail, or the Mount Hollywood Trail. The Good thing about all these trails is that all of them start in Griffith Park. However, keep in mind that all of them are famous and, as a result, busy most of the time. So do your research before you set on a local hiking adventure.
When in LA, you have several options to choose from. However, if you don’t make a list of things to do, you can end up wasting a lot of your precious time. With this list, you can quickly plan your vacation in LA. So, what are you waiting for? Go out and have a great time in the City of Angels!
