Discover another side to Los Angeles

Famed for its connection to Hollywood and the celebrities which tag alongside, Los Angeles is perhaps overlooked as a city of culture and beauty. Look behind the glamourous façade and find out what makes LA tick.

Los Angeles is a sprawling city, made up of many different towns and small cities. Stretching from the beautiful beachfront paradises of Santa Monica and Venice to the artistic enclave of Silver Lake and suburban Eagle Rock. There are amazing museums and cultural hotspots dotted all over the city, like the Grecian beauty of the Getty Villa and the kitsch Hollywood Bowl. Find out about prehistoric California at the La Brea Tar Pits, before heading to Koreatown for amazing food and hip bars. Discover why Downtown is now a trendsetting place to be, with its many bars and cool hotels. But don’t be afraid to venture further out, into the rolling parkland of Griffith Park in the north, where you will find a stunning view from the Griffith Observatory across LA’s vast expanse.

Los Angeles areas

Find out what each of LA’s unique neighbourhoods have to offer.

Downtown.

Downtown Los Angeles has undergone a cultural rebirth in recent years, it is no longer the stuffy business-heavy district it once was. DTLA, as its acronym suggests, is a hip and urban space with a lot to see and do. The Frank Gehry-designed Walt Disney Concert Hall has striking modern architecture. Journey through the Art District’s wildly-decorated buildings on your way to Koreatown for a bite to eat. Downtown is also home to LA Live, an entertainment complex key to the area’s new success. Stay at The Standard, Downtown for one of the best bars in town – The Standard Biergarten.

Hollywood.

Hollywood, the epitome of western glamour and a symbol of the film industry everywhere, is one of LA’s most popular neighbourhoods. Home to the Hollywood Walk of Fame and the Grauman's Chinese Theatre, this is also where you can find the iconic Hollywood Sign. Mingle with LA’s elite on Sunset Strip, or shop in upscale Melrose Avenue – you will find some of the city’s best spots in this area. Like the Andaz West Hollywood, a sophisticated hotel in the heart of Hollywood. Be sure to travel up the hill to Griffith Park, a sprawling space of local flora where you will get the best view of LA from the Griffith Observatory.

West Hollywood & Beverly Hills.

West Hollywood is a great place to be for bars and clubs, and has a big LGBT culture. Liberal and accommodating, West Hollywood has some of the best shops, and restaurants in the city. Also, as bars close at 01.30 across LA, West Hollywood’s clubs stay open until much later. Beverly Hills is synonymous with wealth and celebrity status and is home to many a famous face. Affluent and chic, the neighbourhood is full of high-end shopping, like the designer boutiques on Rodeo Drive. Don’t miss out on a stay at the luxurious Beverly Wilshire, a Los Angeles landmark.

Anaheim.

Anaheim, in Orange County, is the ultimate family destination. It is home to an extensive array of world-class theme parks, including LEGOLAND®, Knotts Berry Farm and Adventure City. But the big draw is the Walt Disney-designed Disneyland®, which opened in 1955. Classic rides and all your favourite characters are there to greet you. The brilliant Downtown Disney is great for themed restaurants and bespoke shops, you can even go to the AMC cinema.

Here you can shop in thrift stores and eat at gourmet cafés. Echo Park is a historic area which houses the iconic Dodgers Stadium, but is also home to live music venues and record stores. If you love rummaging through vinyl, then this is for you. A bit further afield in Eagle Rock, you can find a multicultural and artistic enclave with a calming atmosphere. Packed full of cafés and restaurants, you will find a great bite to eat here.
