Los Angeles

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.
Richard Nixon Presidential Library and Museum and Pierce Brothers Westwood Village Memorial Park will appeal to history buffs. Eschew the tourist crowds and head to 26-Mile Bike Path and The Huntington Library, Art Museum and Botanical Gardens. Change things up with these side-trips from Los Angeles: Crystal Cove (in Laguna Beach), Dolphin & Whale Watching (in Newport Beach) and Wayfarers Chapel (in Rancho Palos Verdes). There's still lots to do: take a leisurely stroll along Santa Monica Pier, don't miss a visit to Hollywood Walk of Fame, explore the world behind art at Los Angeles County Museum of Art, and identify plant and animal life at Santa Rosa Plateau Ecological.

Taos

Taos ©
Many residents have shunned fast-paced city living for Taos's laid-back vibe and blend of Spanish, Native American, and Anglo cultures.
Deepen your sense of the past at sights like San Francisco de Assisi Mission Church and Blumenschein Home & Museum. Step off the beaten path and head to El Santuario de Chimayo and Balloon Rides. When in Taos, make a side trip to see Plaza Blanca in Abiquiu, approximately Abiquiu away. And it doesn't end there: admire the masterpieces at Millicent Rogers Museum, don't miss a visit to Taos County Courthouse Murals, explore and take pictures at The Low Road From Taos and Santa Fe, and examine the collection at La Hacienda del los Martinez.
