Newport Beach is one of the nicest places in Los Angeles, that’s guaranteed. Providing, of course, that you convince the people you’re with that you’re still in Los Angeles, because technically, Newport Beach resides in Orange County (don’t worry: we won’t tell LA). Nevertheless, it’s a great stretch of land to experience. As you might’ve guessed from the name, the main attraction here is the beautiful weather, the endless beach, and the wonderful water.
Back behind the washes, runouts, and deserted rock formations of the Coachella Valley, you’ll find an area known as California’s Little Grand Canyon. Though no more than a series of rugged desert terrain that once was a vast ocean floor, the Little Grand Canyon is full of stark desert beauty with miles of blue sky cast as its backdrop. An experience particular to Palm Springs, discovering the rugged beauty of the desert is part of the integral charm of any visit to the Coachella Valley, and just one of the many great things to do in Palm Springs.
Looking for a place to swing the old 9 iron? I don’t blame you. Taking in a quick 9 is a great way to blow off some stress and get that much-coveted peace of mind we all need. Luckily for you, Anaheim and Buena Park have some great golf clubs near them. Let’s take a look at three of them.
What would a visit to LA be without brandishing the plastic at some point or another? If you’re a shopper, if you love style, glitz, and glamor, then you’re in the right city. Los Angles is one of the consumption capitals of the world, and there’s few better (if any) places to get your shop on. From Rodeo to the Fashion District and everywhere in-between, you’ll have your chance to window shop, I can guarantee you that.
What comes to mind when you think of LA? Staircases, right? Hardly! But be that as it may, there was a day when staircases ruled the day in LA (sorry, I couldn’t resist the rhyme-scheme). Why? Because Los Angeles wasn’t always ruled by cars. In the early days of Los Angeles, children, joggers, businessmen, and, in short, everyone had to get around on foot to their trolley, streetcar, or light bus line. So in order to accommodate the hills of Los Angeles, the city built staircases. Many of them.
Finally! The holiday season is upon us and while the temperature drops a bit and the rains might lie just off the coast, we’re all looking with anticipatory eyes and baited breath the advent of a new year. So with so many things to do in Los Angeles at every other point in the year, what are the best New Year’s Eve events in Los Angeles? Plenty, my friend. Plenty.
One of the nice parts about visiting in LA is getting a chance to catch a Los Angeles Kings Game. Though Los Angeles generally conjures up images of palm trees, sand, and beautiful people, it’s also the biggest city in California and one of the most populous cities in the world – thus, it caters to a wide crowd and offers plenty of great things to do while in LA. And while the Los Angeles Lakers tend to take the lion’s share of the spotlight, there are other sports teams that are just as exciting to watch, if not more so.
Visiting San Diego from LA is easier than you might think. Though the map makes it look like there’s a large swath of space and time between you, really, there’s something to see the whole way down and , depending on where you are on the 101, it can be a relatively quick road trip. In short, it’s a fun drive and you can do a there-and-back in a day quite easily. So don’t let those big and bad maps stop you – get out there and explore the best things to do in San Diego!
Los Angeles – city of angels, beautiful weather, beautiful people, and home of the stars – they don’t call it LaLa land for nothing. With so much glitter and glam, it’s sometimes hard to decide what to do with your time here, but if you go in with a plan – you can come out a star – like the silver screen was your very own. If you’ve come to LA to get a sense of the magic, why not see some of LA’s finest Amusement Parks?
Palm Springs is something of a lovable oddity. Why? Because it’s smack-dab in the middle of hot Californian desert, yet it has beaten the odds and become a treasured spa escape, well known for its stark desert beauty and rejuvenating stillness. If you’ve come to Palm Springs and are looking for things to do aside from lounge about the pool, this post is for you.
