Los Angeles

— 13 nights

City of Angels

Surrounded by mountain ranges, forests, valleys, beaches, and deserts, the metropolitan area of Los Angeles is home to over 17 million people.
Give yourself a bit of retail therapy at Annenberg Community Beach House and The Disney Gallery. Museum-lovers will appreciate The Getty Center and Griffith Observatory. Venture out of the city with trips to Anaheim (Disneyland Park & Disney California Adventure Park), Santa Monica (Third Street Promenade & Santa Monica Place) and State Street Underpass (in Santa Barbara). There's still lots to do: enjoy the sand and surf at Santa Monica State Beach, take a stroll through Rodeo Drive, contemplate the waterfront views at Santa Monica Bay, and don't miss a visit to Two Rodeo Drive.
