Getting Around Los Angeles

Certainly, part of LA's buzz is that the stars still live and work here - you never know who you might glimpse.  You can take the ubiquitous tour and peer from a bus at the sprawling gated palaces of the glitterati - or simply try window shopping on Melrose Avenue, Sunset Strip or Rodeo Drive where you may just spot a starlet or two.

Technically Los Angeles isn't a city at all, but a sprawling collection of 88 towns and communities - and the result is diversity. From the coastal glitz of Santa Monica, to the easygoing chic of Long Beach, or the authentic bustle of Chinatown and Little Tokyo. 

You can discover all modes of cuisine from In-n-Out burger to Cordon Bleu fine dining - but the heart of LA is fusion. The integration of various ethnic styles with Californian cuisine, has given rise to fusions such as Cal-Asian and Cal-French and all other stripes and hues. Mexican food is a great value option and If you like fun with your food, you can't go past the perfect dog at Pink's Hot Dogs in Hollywood.. 

Cultural experiences from MOCA to The Viper Room. You can catch a Lakers game at the Staples Centre, or a concert at the Frank Gehry-designed Walt Disney Concert Hall. Griffith Park can fill a whole day for the family: it hosts the Los Angeles Zoo, Griffith Observatory and Planetarium, and Gene Autry Western Heritage Museum.

If you're looking to exercise the credit card, the Beverly Center is for you, Bloomingdales, Macy's and plenty of upscale brands to tempt even the most discerning shopper.

As you would expect from a city of this nature there are accommodation options from frugal to luxurious. 

From LA you find yourself perfectly situated to set off on the great American roadtrip or perhaps a West Coast surf safari. It's all there for you - take it or leave it.
