Surrounded by mountain ranges, forests, valleys, beaches, and deserts, the metropolitan area of Los Angeles is home to over 17 million people.
You've now added Staples Center to your itinerary. Get outdoors at Santa Monica State Beach and Bronson Caves. Step out of Los Angeles with an excursion to Montana Avenue in Santa Monica--about 34 minutes away. And it doesn't end there: kick back and relax at Venice Beach and Boardwalk, see the interesting displays at The Getty Center, look for all kinds of wild species at Ballona Wetlands, and look and learn at Griffith Observatory.

For other places to visit, ratings, reviews, and more tourist information, refer to the Los Angeles route planner.

A huge and vibrant city, Chicago is home to top-notch theaters, shops, museums, galleries, and restaurants.
