in the comments below. The suggestions are based on our
extremely fun trip to Los Angeles. Here are our top 10 picks: Number 1: Grand Central Market Grand Central Market is a 30,000 square-foot
arcade featuring food emporium and retail marketplace in downtown LA. It opened in 1917 and has been operating ever
since with a mission to provide Los Angeles with a national-caliber eating experience
that showcases California’s best ingredients, chefs and entrepreneurs. It’s a great place to experience the cultures
of Los Angeles by simply walking through or even getting something to eat from one of
the numerous food vendors. And while you’re there, don’t miss the
Angels Flight located right outside the Market. With its 298 feet inclined railway it is supposed
to be the world’s shortest railway. Number 2: OUE Skyspace LA OUE Skyspace LA is California’s
tallest open-air observation deck of the iconic US Bank Tower
with breathtaking views towards Los Angeles. You can do all sorts of things there: engage
with their interactive technology, take a break and have one of their
signature cocktails or, for the brave ones, experience
the 45-foot Skyslide, a fully enclosed, all-glass slide nearly
1,000 feet above Downtown LA that gives you an entirely
new perspective of the city. Check the description for more information
about visiting OUE Skyspace LA. Number 3: Griffith Observatory The observatory overlooking
Los Angeles offers excellent views of downtown and Hollywood Sign. It features an extensive array of space and
science-related displays. Admission has been free ever since the observatory
opened its doors in 1935. One of the more memorable exhibits
is a Tesla coil. The view of the city can be
especially exciting at night. Since many people are arriving by car and
parking space is limited, expect to spend some time to find parking nearby. Number 4: Hollywood Sign The Hollywood Sign is one of the
world’s most famous landmarks and a cultural icon
overlooking Hollywood. “HOLLYWOOD” is spelled out in 45 foot tall
white capital letters and is 352 feet long. The sign was created in 1923 as an advertisement
for a local real estate agency and it initially read: HOLLYWOODLAND. Due to increasing recognition, the sign was
left up in its current form instead of being taken down. You can drive near the sign or simply hike
to this famous landmark. Number 5: Amusement Parks Los Angeles and its surroundings offer several exciting amusement parks, for example,
Disneyland, Universal Studios, etc. We visited Universal Studios Hollywood which
is both a film studio and a theme park. It is one of the oldest and most famous
Hollywood film studios still in use. It was initially created to offer tours of
the real Universal Studios sets. You can enjoy rides and visit film sets of
some of your favorite movies like: Jurassic Park, Back to the Future,
Psycho and many more. Check the description for the list of amusement
parks in Los Angeles area. Number 6: Hollywood Walk of Fame The Hollywood Walk of Fame features over 2,600 stars embedded in the sidewalks along Hollywood
Boulevard and Vine Street. The stars are permanent public monuments to
achievement in the entertainment industry, bearing the names of actors, directors, musicians,
producers, fictional characters, and others. Do not forget to look for the famous Chinese
Theatres, featuring handprints, footprints, and signatures of some of the
Hollywood’s biggest stars. Number 7: Beverly Hills Originally a Spanish ranch
where lima beans were grown Beverly Hills was incorporated in 1914
by a group of investors who had failed to find oil, but found water instead and eventually
decided to develop it into a town. Today, Beverly Hills is one of world’s most
famous upscale places to live and shop. Visit RODEO DRIVE, a famous shopping street with expensive designer stores
and small private boutiques. It became immortalized by Julia Robert’s
“Pretty Woman” shopping spree. The area is popular with wealthy shoppers,
sunglass-wearing celebrities and tourists hoping to see fashion icons. Number 8: Santa Monica Pier The Santa Monica Pier is a large double-jointed and over 100 years old pier located at the
foot of Colorado Avenue in Santa Monica. Its iconic entrance made the pier popular
with both residents and visitors. A sign on the pier marks the end of the legendary
American highway Route 66, symbolizing that this road only ended
when the sea stood in its way. The pier also contains Pacific Park, a family amusement park with
a solar paneled ferris wheel. Since the pier is a very popular tourist spot
expect it can get very crowded. Number 9: Venice Beach Venice is a residential, commercial and
recreational beachfront neighborhood. It was founded in 1905
as a seaside resort town. Over the years it transformed into a free-spirited
boardwalk and residential area full of funky shops, imaginative street
performers and public art. Rent a scooter or a bike and ride along the
Venice Beach, play some sports in one of many public sport areas, or simply sit in the sand,
watch the waves and enjoy the vibe. If you have time, also visit
the Venice Canals nearby. The canals were created in the early 1900’s
to mimic the famous canals in Venice, Italy. By the way, if you enjoy the view of the ocean
you can visit other beaches near Los Angeles. Check the description for list of interesting
beaches in the greater Los Angeles area. Number 10: ART AND MUSEUMS Los Angeles is a perfect destination
for the art lovers. Some of the world-class museums include
Los Angeles County Museum of Art with famous Urban Light assemblage sculpture
composed of 202 street lamps, J. Paul Getty Museum and Getty Villa, and many more. Check the description for links to interesting
museums in Los Angeles. Additionally, Los Angeles is home and a creative
hub to numerous artists and small galleries. We visited Randy and his sculpture
Phantasma Gloria. It was an amazing experience to hear him
talk passionately about his art. Go visit Randyland
if you are ever in Los Angeles. We created Google maps with all the suggestions. Links are in the description. Do you have a favorite place in Los Angeles?
