Surrounded by mountain ranges, forests, valleys, beaches, and deserts, the metropolitan area of Los Angeles is home to over 17 million people.
Your itinerary includes some good beach time at Venice Beach and Boardwalk and Santa Monica Beach. Shop till you drop at Abbot Kinney Boulevard and Bergamot Station.

There's still lots to do: look for all kinds of wild species at Kenneth Hahn State Recreation Area, don't miss a visit to Walt Disney Concert Hall, get to know the fascinating history of Venice Canals Walkway, and stop by Hollywood & Highland.
