Los Angeles is home to endless sunshine, miles of coastline, a dynamic dining scene, incredible outdoor activities, world-class theme parks and a vibrant art scene. 

As with many metropolitan cities, there are many 'touristy' sites in L.A., some worth a visit, others not so much. Going beyond the familiar spots and exploring L.A.'s different neighbourhoods will make this trip one to remember. Dine in some of the world's best restaurants in downtown L.A., hang out with surfers at Manhattan Beach, watch sunsets in Malibu, hit designer boutiques in upmarket Beverly Hills and chill out in laid back Laguna Beach.
