Welcome to the city of angels, where the sun is hot and celebrities mingle with tourists. From the bright lights of Hollywood to the powdery stretches of the nearby beaches, Los Angeles is known around the world for its showbiz lifestyle and pulsating nightlife. What you do not know however, is that there’s a lot more to the city than you might have seen on TV.
Huntington Library is an unexpected gem, with over 120 acres of gardens to wander through and exotic plants from around the globe. Make sure to stop by the beautiful Japanese Friendship garden when it’s in bloom.
When you’re done finding your peace in nature, set your artistic soul alight at the Getty Center, home to a collection of art envied the world over. Keep your eyes peeled for pieces by Monet, Van Gogh, and many more. Art buffs will also enjoy a visit to the Los Angeles County Museum of Art.

Snap a photo of the Hollywood sign and put your hands in the cement in front of Grauman’s Chinese Theatre, where street performers and all manner of celebrity impersonators will compete for your attention.
