“Something is always blooming at Huntington Gardens. “

With over 14,000 different varieties of plant on display in 14 principal garden areas, you can find a delightful display of beautiful blooming flowers in the Huntington Gardens any time of the year.

One of the most oft-given pieces of advice when first touching down in a new city is to get thy bearings. In a city the size and scope of Los Angeles, this can be a bit tricky.

Head to the Palms District of Los Angeles (9341 Venice Blvd., Culver City, to be exact) and find this fun and bizarre collection of relics, sculptures and other-worldly displays.

One thing that’s great about L.A. if you love movies is that if you’re the type who plays close attention to a film, your eyes will pop out of your head in recognition by merely driving around the city.

For the rest of us, we at least have a nagging familiarity with the urban scenery crammed against the hills. If you fall into this latter camp, you’ll want to take an L.A. movie landmark tour next time you’re in the City of Angels.

Los Angeles is full of awesome attractions. If you ask me, the best sights in Los Angeles are the people, and I’m not even talking about celebrities.
