Los Angeles

Los Angeles pode ser famosa pela cultura de celebridades, o brilho de Hollywood e os códigos postais dos famosos – mas isto é apenas o começo. LA é caracterizada por zonas circundantes eclécticas e por algumas das melhores praias do mundo. Pode adorar ou detestar, mas vai encontrar um lado da personalidade da cidade que o cativará.

Desde as zonas circundantes icónicas, como Beverly Hills, imortalizada pela cena de compras protagonizada por Julia Roberts em Pretty Woman, até à roda gigante iluminada no cais de Santa Monica e ao célebre Passeio da Fama de Hollywood, Los Angeles tem tudo. Basta um simples passeio pelas ruas conhecias de LA para sentir que está no seu filme ou programa de TV favorito. Para uma verdadeira experiência em LA, conviva com os habitantes locais num agitado pub gastronómico na baixa de LA, veja o letreiro icónico de Hollywood a partir do Observatório de Griffith Park ou ande de bicicleta pelo movimentado passadiço da praia de Venice. Assista a um jogo dos LA Lakers ou passe um fim-de-semana de aventura no Parque Nacional de Joshua Tree.
