Los Angeles is as iconic as the stars who live there. 

 

LA

Not only is it the legendary home of entertainment, but it’s also home to some of the most well-known landmarks in America. 
 
To help you get started planning your first trip to tinsel town, I’ve highlighted some of the must-see sights to add to your itinerary. 

 

 

1.     Griffith Observatory and Griffith Park 

 

Whether you knew what it was or not, you have definitely seen the Griffith Observatory in movies and on TV before. 

 

A popular filming location, the Griffith Observatory not only offers panoramic views of LA but also has a huge planetarium and free telescopes you can use at night. 

 

 

2.     Hollywood Walk of Fame and TCL Chinese Theatre 

 

If you want to see your favorite “stars” up close, head for the Hollywood Walk of Fame.

Here is where you can see the handprints and signatures of some of the biggest names in Hollywood.

 

 

3.     Los Angeles County Museum of Art  

 

The LACMA is both fun and educational. 

 

The museum has hosted countless famous and up-and-coming artists and showcases artifacts from all over the world. 

 

 

 

4.     Santa Monica Pier 

  

Los Angeles has the best of both worlds when it comes to the beach and the mountains. 

 

For a fun afternoon along the Pacific Ocean, head for the Santa Monica Pier, which features beautiful views, an amusement park, and excellent seafood restaurants. 

 

 

5.     Original Farmers Market and The Grove 

  

Just south of West Hollywood is the original LA farmers market. 

 

Founded in 1934, the market provides fresh produce and yummy snacks for both locals and tourists. 

 

 

6.     Paramount Pictures Studio 

  

If you want to get up close to all the movie-making action, take a tour of the Paramount Studios. 

 

As the fifth oldest studio in the world and the largest in LA, you can learn about the magic of the movies from behind the scenes. 

 

 

7.     Rodeo Drive  

 

Are you ready to do some shopping? 

 

If so, head for the legendary Rodeo Drive. 

 

Even if you’re just window shopping, you’ll be mesmerized by all of the glamorous stores that line the streets. 

 

 

 

8.     Runyon Canyon Park  

 

If you need to escape the hustle and bustle of city life, head for the hills and enjoy a hike through the Runyon Canyon Park. 

 

Just two blocks from Hollywood Boulevard, the top of the canyon has sweeping views of the San Fernando Valley.
