Our Most Recommended Attractions in LA
How would we recommend spending your vacation in Los Angeles? Catch a sunset on Venice Beach, the sand that launched Jim Morrison and the Doors. These days, it’s a mix of skateboarders, street artists, musicians and some quirky bars and restaurants. Bring a sweater for the evening. It does get chilly. A great way to spend the afternoon is to check out some masterpiece art at the Getty. Stand face to face with works by,Rubens, and the best of the best of the Impressionists, including Monet, Renoir, Cézanne and Van Gogh. Or go window shopping on Rodeo Drive. You might not be able to afford anything, but you might run into Julia Roberts.
