Destination of the Month

Los Angeles


Los Angeles has it all as far as dream destinations are concerned, great beaches, great night life, out of this world amusement parks, arts, culture and hip, cool and trendy locals, it’s just a shame its so far to go for the average UK holiday maker and therefore Florida gets the lion’s share of our US visitors. But before you dismiss it for that extra 2 hours flying time, here are a few things you may miss out on.

Venice and Santa Monica are the two famous beaches in Los Angeles, where endless hours can be wound away people watching from the outrageous and fantastic to the weird and plastic the hordes of people that flock to these beaches make them a hive of activity all year round and all day and night. The cool vibes are to be found on Malibu beach where the surfers hang out, wax your board zip on your body suit and catch a barrel, if you are not feeling that energetic just watching the dudes is as spectacular.

The romantic types would be hard pressed to find a better setting than El Matador beach around 10 miles north of Malibu beat a path down the dirt track to find amazingly crystal clear waters and secluded coves to sit and gaze lovingly into each other’s eyes with a backdrop of a Californian sunset, a drop of bubbly and the scene is set.

Of course LA is famous for Disneyland, Universal Studios the Hollywood Walk and the Hollywood sign on Mt Lee, but for the culture vultures there are a many other attractions other than the usual iconic ones, why not visit the Getty Centre a free venue of art exhibits, or the Natural History museum with 4.5 billion years of history, take a stroll down Olvera Street the oldest part of downtown LA with its many craft stalls, plazas and restaurants, a popular tourist haunt, cap the evening off with a visit to Sunset Boulevard where you can catch great nightlife and live music.

Shopping in LA is an attraction in itself with everything on offer from vintage clothing and artefacts to ultimate luxury and bling, start in downtown LA in the fashion district get kitted out in a unique style, then get lost in one of the sprawling arcades or malls as they are called over there The Grove or The Beverly Center are the most popular. For those with expensive taste Rodeo Drive or Robertson Blvd is bound to satisfy the craven whereas bargain hunters should look towards Camarillo or Ontario Mills.

Flying to LA from the UK is not as expensive or such a long haul as it may seem, with so many flights operating daily getting a cheap flight to Los Angeles is quite a simple task, you may consider a stopover on route New York, Miami, Chicago or Atlanta make for great stops on route to break the journey.
