Put yourself on Hollywood’s red carpet with a visit to Los Angeles. Whether you’re a movie buff or not, Hollywood’s Walk of Fame is a must see where you can also check out the Hollywood sign and Dolby Theatre – home of the Oscars.
On your travels through Los Angeles be sure to check out a theme park or two: Spend a couple of days at the happiest place on earth, Disneyland, whilst Universal Studios has amazing shows and some of the latest rides. Knott’s Berry Farm has some of the best rides in southern California and is definitely worth a visit.
After a couple of days themepark hopping some retail therapy might be in order: Load up on the latest fashions, and Nike and Under Armour gear. A stop in LA isn’t complete without witnessing the Lakers or Clippers live. There’s also a couple of local NFL teams, and try to make a visit to big time college programs USC and UCLA – UCLA’s Hall of Fame is simply awesome!
Finish your stay in LA with a visit to Santa Monica Pier and shooting some hoops at Venice Beach --- For there’s no shortage of sports, shopping or themeparks in the City of Angels.
