Surrounded by mountain ranges, forests, valleys, beaches, and deserts, the metropolitan area of Los Angeles is home to over 17 million people.
You'll get in some beach time at Carpinteria State Beach and El Matador State Beach. Get some historical perspective at Oceanside Pier and The Huntington Library, Art Collections and Botanical Gardens. Venture out of the city with trips to Newport Beach (in Newport Beach), San Juan Capistrano (Mission San Juan Capistrano & Mission Basilica San Juan Capistrano) and Laguna Beach (Crystal Cove & 1,000 Steps Beach). There's still lots to do: examine the collection at The Getty Villa, see majestic marine mammals with a dolphin and whale watching tour, explore the landscape on two wheels at Carpenteria Bluffs Nature Preserve, and look for all kinds of wild species at Santa Rosa Plateau Ecological.

To find maps, traveler tips, where to stay, and tourist information, go to the Los Angeles trip builder app .

If you are flying in from Canada, the closest major airports are Los Angeles International Airport, John Wayne Airport-Orange County Airport, Ontario International Airport and San Bernardino International Airport. In April, plan for daily highs up to 28°C, and evening lows to 15°C. Wrap up your sightseeing on the 24th (Wed) to allow time to travel back home.
