Dream of the star-studded, sun-soaked City of Angels!

About the Destination

Dreaming of the star-studded, sun-soaked City of Angels? Saturated with cinema and motion-picture history, Los Angeles is today’s center for television, commercial and music recording production. Stroll down the Hollywood Walk of Fame, or check out the grandeur and decor of Sid Graumann’s TCL Chinese Theatre.

Reflect on themes of social justice at the Museum of Tolerance, which critically examines America’s history of racism and prejudice, or at the Japanese American National Museum, which explores the Japanese experience in World War II concentration camps.

If you’re looking for some downtime, bike along the boardwalk of Venice Beach, or window shop in the epicenter of high-end fashion on Rodeo Drive in Beverly Hills. Take a hike in Griffith Park for a fantastic view of the city, then refuel with the best burger you will ever have at In ‘N’ Out Burger. Take a campus tour of the world-renown UCLA, and learn about college life in sunny LA!
