Surrounded by mountain ranges, forests, valleys, beaches, and deserts, the metropolitan area of Los Angeles is home to over 17 million people.
Head to Bergamot Station and Melrose Trading Postfor plenty of shopping. Change things up with these side-trips from Los Angeles: Anaheim (Disneyland Park & Disney California Adventure Park). Pack the 3rd (Thu) with family-friendly diversions at Universal Studios Hollywood. There's still lots to do: examine the collection at The Getty Center, buy something for everyone on your list at The Grove, look for gifts at Hollywood & Highland, and look and learn at Griffith Observatory.
