Surrounded by mountain ranges, forests, valleys, beaches, and deserts, the metropolitan area of Los Angeles is home to over 17 million people.
Discover out-of-the-way places like Wine Tours & Tastings and Mission San Juan Capistrano. Change things up with these side-trips from Los Angeles: Anaheim (Disneyland Park, Disney California Adventure Park, & more), San Clemente (San Clemente Pier, San Clemente Coastal Trail, & more) and Dana Point (Hill Top Park & Dana Point Harbor). Pack the 3rd (Thu) with family-friendly diversions at Universal Studios Hollywood. There's still lots to do: examine the collection at The Getty Center, see the sky in a new way at Griffith Observatory, stroll through Silver Strand Beach, and see majestic marine mammals with a dolphin and whale watching tour.
