  • Hollywood Walk Of Fame

Get to Hollywood Boulevard first thing in the morning so you can find a park easier and beat the crowds. You will probably only need to spend an hour or two here.

  • In and Out Burger

Only 3 blocks down from Hollywood Boulevard on Sunset. No visit to California is complete until you have eaten at this tasty establishment.

  • Griffith Observatory

The observatory is fascinating if you are interested in space and astronomy. It is a nice drive up to the observatory and you will have great views of the Hollywood sign.

  • Rodeo Drive

Rodeo Drive is probably the wealthiest and most famous shopping district in the world.

  • Beverly Hills

Since you are in the area you may as well go for a little drive through the residential area of Beverly Hills and surrounding suburbs.

  • Venice Beach

Venice beach is a one of a kind place. Highly recommended is hiring a bicycle and going for a ride on the boardwalk or go down to the beach and watch the sunset.

  • Venice Canals

Strolling along the beautifully landscaped walkways of the Venice Canals, it is easy to see the appeal of living in this one-of-a-kind neighborhood.

  • Santa Monica Pier

The Santa Monica pier is another famous Los Angeles landmark. The pier is all about having fun on rollercoasters, riding the ferris wheel and playing arcade games.

  • Malibu

The beaches in and around Malibu are stunning and so are the homes. Beaches here are a lot less crowded than the Santa Monica area too.
