Surrounded by mountain ranges, forests, valleys, beaches, and deserts, the metropolitan area of Los Angeles is home to over 17 million people.
Ronald Reagan Presidential Library and Museum and Beatrice Wood Center for the Arts will appeal to museum buffs. You'll explore the less-touristy side of things at Mission San Luis Rey and Wilson Creek Winery. Venture out of the city with trips to Meditation Mount (in Ojai), Mission Basilica San Juan Capistrano (in San Juan Capistrano) and Ventura (Ventura Harbor Village & Mission San Buenaventura). And it doesn't end there: stroll the grounds of Pierce Brothers Westwood Village Memorial Park, don't miss a visit to Rodeo Drive, and get some fabulous bargains at Citadel Outlets.
