Begin your holiday to California on the shores of the Pacific Ocean with a walk down the Venice Beach boardwalk. Prepare yourself beforehand, because you’re about to see some crazy stuff. There’s street performers executing acts of physical strength. A guy parading around with a 20-foot python. And some surprisingly talented musicians using anything they can find for an instrument.
Los Angeles holidays aren’t just about seeing the weird, so leave the boardwalk for a slightly more serene feeling at L.A. Live, an entertainment complex in the South Park district of downtown. Check out the Grammy Museum that showcases the triumphs and history of Grammy Award winners. Head to the fourth floor, where musical artefacts such as costumes and instruments from the industry’s biggest names make their home. Just be sure to keep your hands off of Stevie Ray Vaughan’s guitar.
We hope your wallet is thick, because you’re going to need some cash to survive shopping in Beverly Hills—more specifically Rodeo Drive. Seriously, no Los Angeles holiday package is complete without it. No, it’s not full of cattle hustlers and steer wrestlers. It’s a luxury shopping district, and the sheer number of high-quality stores contained within its relatively small space will blow you away. If you spot a Lamborghini, do the most tourist thing possible and pretend to get in it while having your picture taken. Or just get your own wheels through lastminute.com.au’s sweet Los Angeles car hire options—might not be a Lambo, though.
Walking down the Venice Beach boardwalk will make you hungry, so head downtown to the Arts District where a splendid food scene has seemingly sprouted up out of nowhere. There’s an Italian place that hand-makes its own salami on a daily basis. A place where the words “bread” and “lounge” combine to create a wonderful all-day breakfast eatery. While booking one of our Los Angeles holiday packages, check out some offers on local food tours.
Now that eating is out of the way, it’s time to party. It’s “Tinsel Town” baby, of course there’s a nightlife. An epic nightlife to say the least. Get over to Hollywood. No matter what club you choose to go to, you’ll probably share a spot in line for the pisser with a movie star. You don’t have to go to Hollywood, go downtown where a number of sneaky speakeasies have turned up. You better know what door to knock on and what secret phrase to say, or else you go home sober.
The California coast is calling your name, tempting you with its bronzed bodies and endless shenanigans. We think you should indulge. Check out lastminute.com.au’s selection of Los Angeles packages, book one now and start living like a movie star tomorrow.
