Surrounded by mountain ranges, forests, valleys, beaches, and deserts, the metropolitan area of Los Angeles is home to over 17 million people.
Museum-lovers will appreciate The Getty Center and Petersen Automotive Museum. Get a sense of the local culture at Santa Monica Pier and Los Angeles County Museum of Art. Change things up with these side-trips from Los Angeles: Dolphin & Whale Watching (in Dana Point), Santa Monica Mountains (in Santa Monica) and Anaheim (Oak Canyon Nature Center, Disneyland Park, & more). Pack the 16th (Thu) with family-friendly diversions at Universal Studios Hollywood. Next up on the itinerary: kick back and relax at Venice Beach and Boardwalk, identify plant and animal life at Kenneth Hahn State Recreation Area, get a taste of life in the country at Running Horse Ranch, and explore the stunning scenery at Upper Las Virgenes Canyon Open Space Preserve.

If you are flying in from Canada, the closest major airports are Los Angeles International Airport, John Wayne Airport-Orange County Airport, Ontario International Airport and San Bernardino International Airport. In May, plan for daily highs up to 28°C, and evening lows to 17°C. Finish your sightseeing early on the 19th (Sun) to allow enough time to travel back home.
