Spotlight On Los Angeles


Spotlight On Los Angeles

The 'City of Angeles' may enjoy a Hollywood backdrop, but there's more to Los Angeles than just a glitzy celebrity culture.

Kick off your time in Tinseltown by hiring a car (preferably a convertible in L.A. style) and taking a spin along Mulholland Drive, where lookouts along the way reveal the sheer magnitude of this magnetic metropolis. As you make your way down through 'the Hills', swing by the Hollywood Bowl and jive to jazz or catch the classics during the warmer months.

Treat the kids (and yourself!) to a day at Disneyland – the Happiest Place on Earth needs no introduction – or peak behind the silver screen at Universal Studios. If you'd rather spend time with your MasterCard than with Mickey, make your way to Beverley Hills for some stylish souveniring. Don't forget to add a token tour of movie star's homes to see how the other half live, before indulging your own California dreaming with a cruise along the Pacific Coast Highway from Santa Monica to Malibu.
