5 Things to do in L.A.

by Don

Everyone wants to visit Los Angeles. It’s a place where dreams come true. Unfortunately, it’s also a place where dreams fail. It’s not that easy to get noticed in Los Angeles. The good news for a traveler who doesn’t live in the area is that you only get to enjoy the great aspects of the city, which we will cover here. While we will focus on attractions, be sure to look into Los Angeles holiday packages prior to booking your trip. This is the best way to save money.

Disney Hall might sound like an amusement park to some people, but it’s actually a concert hall. This is where you go if you want to see and hear classical music being played live. Gustavo Dudamel – Music Director of Los Angeles Philharmonic – does an excellent job. He’s highly energetic. You will be entertained; that’s for sure. You might also enjoy the unique architecture of the building. It was designed by Frank Gehry and is all stainless steel. The twists and turns are remarkable.

Dodger Stadium is not the most interesting ballpark in the major leagues. Actually, it’s old and on the standard side. However, going to a Dodgers game is a unique experience. It’s more about spotting celebrities than watching the game. That’s why so many people leave in the middle of the game. If you’re a baseball fan, the good news is the Dodgers are a solid organization and usually put a competitive team on the field.

The Natural History Museum of Los Angeles County is the second largest museum in the country. It’s home to more than 35 million different artifacts. It also has something for everyone. For instance, for those who love the outdoors, go to the Rose Garden. If you like birds, visit the Pavilion of Wings. If you prefer butterflies, visit the Butterfly Pavilion. For kids, there is plenty to do, including an interactive dinosaur-themed room in the basement.

If you like to party, Club Mayan will be one of the best experiences of your life. The prices are fair and the atmosphere is insane – that’s meant in a good way. This 3-level nightclub has different types of music and atmospheres on each floor. There is also an outdoor section. Oh, and the people are gorgeous.

Are you more of the laidback type? If that’s the case, go to the Million Dollar Theater, which is the best place to see classic films such as The Rocky Horror Picture Show or Blade Runner.

This is only a small sampling of how much there is to do in Los Angeles. These attractions will cost money, which makes saving money on Los Angeles holiday packages so important. If you’re going to do L.A., do it right.
