Legendary LA Tourist Attractions
Although there is more to Los Angeles than just the shiny glow of Hollywood – gasp – this area really solidified the city's place on the map. From the beaches along the coast to the magnetic pull of Tinseltown and everything in between; there is a little something for everyone to experience.
From the noted Hollywood Sign to the Hollywood Walk of Fame, a visit to Los Angeles is the looking glass into the lives of celebrities and everything you usually only experience through film and television. Compare your hands to those of the famous at Grauman's Chinese Theatre, or catch a concert at the Hollywood Bowl. When you come to Hollywood, you never know where the next red carpet or step-and-repeat may be.
Visit one of the oldest and most famous film studios still in use, which also happens to be a massive theme park. Take a behind-the-scenes back lot tour, or ride one of the theme and thrill rides based on popular television and movie franchises. Avoid the hassle of lines and parking when you stay with us. We offer free shuttle service to Universal Studios and sell tickets at our front desk.
Beaches are to California what starlets are to Hollywood – you can't have one without the other. The Los Angeles area is surrounded by some of the most diverse and beautiful beaches you can imagine. You're probably thinking, "how can beaches be diverse? It's all sand and water!" Well, let us tell you, they are. Venice Beach is full of culture and color, while Santa Monica Beach is more suited for traveling families. Everyone loves the beaches of Malibu, so go ahead and make a day of it. Driving along the Pacific Coast Highway is almost as much of an attraction as the beaches it hugs.
