What to do in Los Angeles

Explore the La Brea Tar Pits

Right in the middle of LA you’ll find, somewhat disconcertingly, the La Brea Tar Pits. Formed by natural tar oozing out of the ground, they’re home to a huge number of fossils of long-extinct animals; skeletons of saber-toothed cats, dire wolves, and woolly mammoth have been found here.

The largest art museum in the Western US, LACMA has a collection that spans centuries and continents, as well as stunning architecture and installations on its grounds. A free tour is included in the price of admission, and you can book a private tour outside of opening hours.

Celebrity spot at Bar Marmont

If you want to schmooze with the stars, stop by Bar Marmont. This dimly lit lounge, decorated with oddball items such as stuffed peacocks, is a well-known celebrity hangout spot. The cozy corners, leather sofas, and relaxed vibe make it perfect for a date.

Discover Griffith Observatory

Not just for science nerds, Griffith Observatory has the power to knock your socks off, particularly in the Planetarium where you can watch the cosmos on the domed ceiling screen. Visit after dark, when you can look at the stars through telescopes on the lawn.

Hike Runyon Canyon

When you need to get away from the city, join the locals (and celebrities) by hitting Runyon Canyon for a run or a hike. There are lots of different trails to choose from, and they all lead up to spectacular views of Catalina Island, Sunset Strip, and the Hollywood sign. Take the heat into account before you start.

Shop at the Rose Bowl Flea Market

Walking around a flea market in LA is more than just shopping. It’s an experience, and the Rose Bowl Flea Market is the best of the bunch. You can wander along 11 km of jewelry, art, antiques, vintage clothes, and movie memorabilia, all housed in the iconic Rose Bowl Stadium.

Sqirl (Breakfast)

Toast gets a makeover at this cozy neighborhood joint, where there’s almost always a line out the door. It’s worth the wait for Sqirl’s brilliant brioche toast with toppings such as homemade jam, almond-hazelnut butter, and chocolate ganache. There’s also a healthy lunch menu.

Musso & Frank Grill (American)

For Old Hollywood glamor, there’s nowhere better than this LA institution. Open since 1919, it still serves classic dishes such as Welsh rarebit and lobster thermidor. Along with the delicious food, you get the thrill of eating where Greta Garbo, Charlie Chaplin, and Marilyn Monroe once signed deals over steaks.

Son of a Gun (Seafood)

This laid-back shack serves up some of the best seafood in LA, including oysters, lobster rolls, shrimp toast, and, if you fancy a change, a mouthwatering chicken sandwich. The decor is pretty cool, too, with sturdy wood paneling and walls adorned with anchors and lifesavers.

CA 90048
+1 323 782 9033

Lucques (Mediterranean)

Frequently named one of the best restaurants in Los Angeles, Lucques, helmed by Chef Suzanne Goin, is worth the splurge. It’s Mediterranean cuisine with a West Hollywood twist, so it’s healthy and tasty. The romantic setting—an old carriage house in a courtyard with ivy-draped walls—makes this a great date choice.

Night+Market Song (Thai)

Silver Lake is a trendy neighborhood with a lot of cool restaurants, but Night+Market stands out from the rest with its amazing Thai street food. Prepare yourself for plates of super spicy and flavorful papaya salads, coconut rice, and fish spiced with garlic and chili.

Café Gratitude (Vegetarian)

A favorite celeb haunt, Café Gratitude makes healthy eating a pleasure, not a chore. Salads of marinated kale or Mediterranean grains are garnished with garlic tahini and fig balsamic dressing, noodles made from kelp form the base of the pad Thai, and soups come in raw and cooked forms.

Shutters on the Beach

From the outside, you could easily mistake this oceanfront hotel for an overgrown beach house, complete with wicker furniture, louvered shutters, and bicycles. But look inside and you’ll find luxurious rooms with whirlpool bathtubs, flat-screen TVs, and balconies that look out to the ocean. Best of all, it’s only about 3 km from the iconic Venice Beach.

HI Hostel

The best hostels are usually ones where you can meet fellow travelers, and with room for 260 guests, HI Hostel certainly fits the bill. It also makes a good base if you want to be near the beach. The hostel organizes daily trips to Disneyland, Universal Studios, and other LA landmarks.

The Line

This industrial-chic hotel has a prime location in Koreatown. You can splurge on a room with floor-to-ceiling views of the Hollywood Hills, but there’s just as much to see inside the hotel. Its chic lounge is set in a greenhouse, and Chef Roy Choi runs the restaurants.

Palihotel

This hip boutique hotel on Melrose Avenue used to be a hostel, but you wouldn’t know it; the building has been revamped to look like a trendy log cabin. There are just 32 rooms, which are modern but fitted out with knick knacks from different eras and mini fridges stocked with Dean & DeLuca products.

The Beverly Hills Hotel

This landmark hotel is more than a century old, and it’s seen an uncountable number of stars (and starstruck fans) pass through its doors. The "Pink Palace" has kept up with the times, but it’s the old-school service and gorgeous gardens that keep guests coming back.
