Do your shopping at Montana Avenue and Third Street Promenade. Satisfy your inner culture vulture at The Getty Center and Santa Monica Pier. Take a break from Los Angeles with a short trip to Disneyland Park in Anaheim, about 36 minutes away. The adventure continues: shop like a local with The Grove, kick back and relax at Venice Beach and Boardwalk, look for gifts at Amoeba Music, and don't miss a visit to Abbot Kinney Boulevard.
