Surrounded by mountain ranges, forests, valleys, beaches, and deserts, the metropolitan area of Los Angeles is home to over 17 million people.
Your day-by-day itinerary now includes Travel Town as well as The Grove. Kids will appreciate attractions like Disneyland Park and Disney California Adventure Park. Change things up with a short trip to Downtown Disney in Anaheim (about 34 minutes away). Pack the 24th (Mon) with family-friendly diversions at Universal Studios Hollywood. There's still lots to do: look and learn at Griffith Observatory, engage your brain at California Science Center, examine the collection at The Getty Center, and get engrossed in the history at La Brea Tar Pits and Museum.

In December, plan for daily highs up to 24°C, and evening lows to 11°C. Finish up your sightseeing early on the 27th (Thu) so you can travel back home.
