The city of Los Angeles, also known as the "City of Angels" is one of the most interesting cities not only in California but in the whole of United States as well. It is also the largest city in the state of California.
I am trying to remember our visit in this city last 2008. The Los Angeles weather that time was quite hot. It was during the month of June when we visited this city. It depends on what time of the year you want to visit LA, you can always enjoy it and there are always a lot of things to see and activities to do and experience in this world famous city.
Here are some of the few things you need to see and experience when visiting this world's famous entertainment center.
Visit to its Famous Museums and Galleries like The Getty Center or J. Paul Getty Museum (have very extensive arts collection and regarded as the finest museum in the USA), Los Angeles County Museum of Art (works of art that span both history and geography and also represents Los Angeles’ uniquely diverse population), Museum of Contemporary Art (MOCA), The Museum of Tolerance, Japanese American National Museum, are only some of its worth-to see ones.
Experience its historical sites. The historic center Los Angeles which is the Olvera Street, where the oldest building in the city is open to public. The mission which was established here, the Misión de la Nuestra Señora la Reina de Los Ángeles, known in English as the Mission of our Lady the Queen of the Angels, is where the city derives its name. Also visit the historic downtown site, the Union Station where the main railway hub for the city is located.
If you have much time, you can also go walking or hiking in Griffith Park, the second largest park within the city in the whole country and in LA. Other parks worth to see are the Exposition Park and the Mulholland Drive.
Shopping can be a great experience in LA. Always remember that this city has a well-known, diverse and unique shopping traditions and destinations. Shopping malls are everywhere. Among the few interesting ones are the Hollywood & Highland mall, Beverly Center, the Grove, Broadway in Downtown, Alvarado Blvd. and some other more. If you want to see some celebrities, Larchmont Blvd. especially in Melrose Avenue.
If you still have the chance, you can experience Disneyland Park in Anaheim, California. A visit to Hollywood Universal Studios and window shopping in Universal Walk can also be a wonderful experience.
