Our tips for Los Angeles

  • Take a hike. A hike high into the Hollywood Hills sagebrush is practically mandatory while in LA. Embrace the health-conscious culture of this city, and get your walk on at Runyon Canyon or opt for quieter Griffith Park for a Los Angeles day trip to remember.
  • Rub shoulders with celebs. Are you Brad Pitt’s biggest fan? Your best chance of a celebrity sighting is by visiting LA in February, when stars big and small flock to Hollywood’s mecca for the annual Academy Awards – one of the top Los Angeles attractions.
  • Test out the food truck phenomenon. Food trucks first found their calling in the US, with Los Angeles embracing the new fast food movement with gusto. The best of the city’s street eats are at Venice beach and Santa Monica, and are perfect for a quick bite between Los Angeles sightseeing.

Good to know

Best time to visit
Avoid the wet seasons of October through to November and February to March, and head to LA when the sun’s shining. There’s plenty of things to do in Los Angeles, with the city full of outdoorsy activities, so be sure to make the most of it and enjoy the long, hot summer days.
Getting around
LA’s unspoken rule of driving everywhere - always, means finding your way around this city can be tricky. Here are our navigation tips.
  • Los Angeles locals opt for driving as their main form of transport for good reason: the city is large, with different neighbourhoods and districts spanning miles and meaning the quickest travel is by car. When considering what to do in Los Angeles, and how to do it, getting a hire car is a good option. Avoid rush hour though, this city has some of the worst traffic in the country.
  • Hop-on, hop-off sightseeing buses are some of the best Los Angeles tours for exploring and to get from a to b in a hurry. In keeping with traditional LA style, cruising the streets of Los Angeles on four wheels allows you to get your bearings, and picking up some of the city’s most interesting facts and seeing the landmarks along the way.
  • The Metro Rail consists of two subway lines and six light rail lines connecting the city’s far-flung districts. For those on too tight a budget for a hire-car, the metro is a fail-safe, budget-friendly option.
Stay Safe
Los Angeles is a relatively safe city. Keep these travel tips in tow so your trip can go off without a hitch…
  • Look out for pickpockets on your Los Angeles day tours. Petty thieves operate throughout the city’s main tourist areas, so only carry small change, keeping your handbag and other valuables close.
  • If you are walking the streets alone, be wary of strangers and walk in well-lit, populated areas. Walk with purpose, even if you’re unsure of your location. Looking like you know your way will ward off dodgy opportunists.
  • In any emergency, dial 911.
