Once in a Lifetime Things to Do in Los Angeles
There is so much to love about Los Angeles. Its weather, diversity, food and entertainment scene make it one of the best vacations in the world.
With so much to do and see, make sure your trip is unforgettable with unique excursions and activities.
Here are once-in-a-lifetime things to do in Los Angeles that you can’t experience anywhere else in the world.
Rent A Car and Ride Up Pacific Coast Highway
Pacific Coast Highway is one of the most iconic road trips in the world. The epic views, the cute and small towns with shops and cafés, wineries and strawberry farms make this drive you will never forget.
You don’t have to explore the entire 2,000 miles of Highway 1 and US 101. The highway stretching from Mexico to Canada’s border has something for everyone to explore.
Hike Hollywood Sign
The Hollywood Sign is iconic and described as a universal metaphor for the place, industry, lifestyle and aspiration for people and entertainers who have shaped the world’s entertainment capital.
Experience the sign up close by hiking it with routes that rank from easy to difficult. Authorized hiking trails are open the same hours as Griffith Park all day yearround
Stroll The Hollywood Walk of Fame
Speaking of entertainment, don’t forget to stroll on the world’s most famous sidewalk and the celebrities it honors.
Make a game by finding your favorite celebrities along the Hollywood Walk of Fame during your visit.
Learn To Eat Fire
Learn to eat fire with an expert at the newly renovated Theatre 68 Arts Complex. Airbnb host Cat will take you through the theory and safety precautions behind fire eating and body burning. By the end of the session, you’ll be fire-eating and body-burning like a pro.
You can find Disney products and Disney’s influence all over the globe, but there are only six resorts worldwide. Located in Anaheim, about an hour south of Los Angeles, is Disneyland. This is the first theme park opened by The Walt Disney Company, and the only one designed and constructed under the direct supervision of Walt Disney.
Disneyland is smaller than Walt Disney World in Orlando, Florida, but don’t let its size deter you from making the trip. It has attractions the resort in Orlando doesn’t have, including Avengers Camp, Cars Land, Matterhorn Bobsleds, Pixar Pal-A-Round and It’s a Small World. Disneyland is also the only Disney Park to feature New Orleans Square, which pays homage to one of the places Walt Disney loved the most.
Take Pictures At Homes From Popular TV Shows
HBO Insecure fans, this one is for you! You can visit Issa and Lawrence’s first apartment on the show in Los Angeles. Plug in The Dunes, located at 709 N Inglewood Ave in Inglewood, and visit the iconic filming location.
Other homes you can find in Los Angeles, include the Thriller House from Michael Jackson’s video. You can find it near Dodger Stadium. The Thompson home from the 1984 film “A Nightmare on Elm Street” is located in Hollywood at 1428 Genessee Avenue.
While Charmed took place in San Francisco, you can find the home in Los Angeles. Find the Halliwell family residence at 1329 Carroll, which also is near Dodger Stadium.
Look At Your Favorite Celebrity Houses
If you’re looking for something more real, you can see how the rich and famous live with a tour. The former home of Grammy-awarding winning artist and makeup mogul Rihanna can be found in Beverly Hills, and Michael Jackson’s Neverland Ranch is two hours away in Los Olivos. The home was rumored to have a train, zoo and small fair.
Rocky fans can get a two-for-one visit if they go to Sylvester Stallone’s former home in Beverly Hills. It’s now the home of Grammy-winning artist and superstar Adele.
Rollerblade On Venice Beach
A trip to Los Angeles is not complete without visiting Venice Beach. The beach is both famous and popular, as it is situated in an iconic part of town. Venice Beach’s boardwalk, or the Ocean Front Walk, has murals and physical activities, such as rollerblading. You can rent a pair of your own or simply people-watch and live vicariously through those who are doing it.
