STRETCHING FROM SPARKLING COAST TO RUGGED MOUNTAINS, LOS ANGELES IS AS DIVERSE AS ITS LANDSCAPE.

A city made up of neighborhoods, Los Angeles has something for everyone. A culinary mecca, where abundant local produce begets world-renowned restaurants and taco trucks alike, this sun-soaked entertainment capital is also home to some of the world’s best art, music, and theater.

DISCOVERIES

ABBOT KINNEY
ABBOT KINNEY BLVD BETWEEN VENICE BLVD AND WESTMINSTER AVE
Abott-Kinney_700x380

The Los Angeles beach enclave of Venice has always cool, but it was more of a hippie, counterculture kind of cool. No longer. Its main drag of Abbot Kinney is now one of LA’s hippest spots, crammed with trendy coffee shops, indie designer boutiques, award-winning restaurants, and, of course, plenty of beautiful people. And, best of all, the beach is still just a couple blocks away.

BROAD CONTEMPORARY ART MUSEUM
221 S. GRAND AVENUE, LOS ANGELES, CA 90012
Broad-Contemporary-Art-Gallery_700x380

The latest addition to Los Angeles’ vibrant contemporary art scene, the long-awaited Broad (pronounced “brode”) is a work of art in and of itself, designed by architects Diller Scofidio + Renfro, in collaboration with the firm Gensler. Inside, more than 2,000 works of postwar art – in addition to temporary exhibitions – are open to the public for free. Book an entry time in advance, though, as lines can be long.

GRAND CENTRAL MARKET
317 S. BROADWAY, LOS ANGELES, CA 90013
Grand-Central-Market_700x380

While Downtown Los Angeles was once the city’s heart, a lively theater and arts district, it fell out of favor in the 1940s and 50s, as the city spread and public transportation declined. In recent years, though, it has experienced a resurgence, becoming a hip neighborhood full of award-winning restaurants, cocktail bars, designer boutiques, and art galleries. At the heart is Grand Central Market, one of the city’s oldest food markets, now transformed into a gourmet food hall.

GREYSTONE MANSION
905 LOMA VISTA DRIVE,BEVERLY HILLS, CA 90210
Greystone-Villa_700x380

The largest home ever built in Beverly Hills, this fifty-five room English Tudor estate was a gift from oil magnate Edward L Doheny, Sr., to his son. The set of many films, the grounds and surrounding park are now owned by the city, and so open and free to visitors. Especially in the summer months, the estate also regularly hosts theater events, musical performances, lectures, and readings, though they tend to sell out, so be sure to book in advance.

GRIFFITH PARK & OBSERVATORY
2800 EAST OBSERVATORY RD.,LOS ANGELES, CA 90027
Griffith-Park-and-Observatory_700x380

Presiding over the Los Angeles Valley from the northeast, the Art Deco landmark of Griffith Observatory captures Old Hollywood even as it focuses on science and nature. Its elegant, 1930s architecture can be seen in many films, and its nighttime views over LA’s twinkling lights are positively cinematic. While you can drive up to the observatory, the steep hills of surrounding Griffith Park are among the city’s most popular hiking spots.

HOLLYWOOD FOREVER CEMETERY
6000 SANTA MONICA BLVD., HOLLYWOOD, CA 90038
Hollywood-Forever-Cemetary_700x380

As the capital of the film, TV, and music industries, it’s no surprise that Los Angeles has an abundance of entertainment, with iconic venues like the Greek Theater and Hollywood Bowl hosting concerts, symphonies, film screenings, and more. For something even more distinctively LA, catch a movie or a concert at the Hollywood Forever Cemetery, a lush park that just also happens to be the final resting place of some of Hollywood’s biggest names.

SANTA MONICA FARMERS MARKET
2200 VIRGINIA AVE; SUNDAY, 2640 MAIN ST.
Santa-Monica-Farmers-Market_700x380

The gifts of California’s year-round farming climate await at Santa Monica’s four weekly farmers’ markets. Shoppers peruse the stalls for the sweetest field-ripe corn or the first of June’s ruby cherries. Join superstar chefs in gathering the finest of vegetables, fruits, honeys, nuts and flowers – get enough for a picnic, then bicycle along the beach until you find the perfect spot to lunch.
