5 Places Not to Miss in the Los Angeles Area

Los Angeles, California is a great place. It might be one of the busiest and most populated cities in the country, but it has a long and wonderful history that has a unique flavor. After all, this is where Hollywood is. If you are traveling to the L.A. area on vacation, you might want to do some of the touristy things, such as theme parks, when you first arrive. However, you shouldn't forget some of the other great things to see and do that are a bit under the radar. The following are still tourist friendly areas, but they are generally quite a bit more subdued then the theme parks are.

Griffith Observatory

One of the most impressive buildings in Los Angeles, Griffith Observatory happens to be a popular attraction. While there are a number of people who visit, you can still spend some time enjoying the view and the building without standing shoulder to shoulder with other tourists most of the time. Admission to the building and the grounds is free, and that helps to make it an even better place to visit!

Lake Hollywood

This spot recently reopened to the public, and now visitors can enjoy the path that leads around the Hollywood Reservoir. This area has some fantastic views, it is relatively quiet, and you get to see and experience some of the beautiful Hollywood Hills. Most tourists don't take the time to do this.

Venice Beach

While it might be a bit on the busy side, you really do want to make sure you spend some time exploring Venice Beach while you are in the city. The beach is a fun spot, and the boardwalk has some great shops. However, the real draw happens to be all the crazy characters that parade up and down Venice Beach all day. It is a great spot for people watching.

The Magic Castle

Do you like magic? While the Magic Castle might not be a place for the thrifty, it is a wonderful place to visit if you want to enjoy a nice, if expensive, dinner and show. If you know a member and go with him or her, you can get in free. Otherwise, you need to pay for dinner. The place has a strict dress code as well, so make sure you look your best when you go.

Hollywood Forever Cemetery

If you want to find a truly peaceful place to go, this might be the right spot. Hollywood Forever Cemetery is the resting place of many stars. You can walk through the cemetery and find their headstones and mausoleums. They do offer tours if you prefer. Some of the notable people you can find buried in the cemetery include Charlie Chaplin, Jr., Mel Blanc, Jayne Mansfield, Tyrone Power, and Bugsy Siegel.

When you are staying in Los Angeles, make sure you have a great spot as your base of operations, such as a timeshare you rent or own. This is just the beginning of all of the fun places you can visit when you come to Los Angeles.
