I'm thinking of going to Los Angeles, California USA maybe this October. What are your favorite (not too touristy) things/places to do there for 2-3 days?
I could write paaaages on this. There’s something for everyone here in LA! We’d have to know what kind of things you’re into to give a perfect response, but hopefully our kinda broad yet kinda detailed response gets you the information you’re looking for.
- If you want to sightsee, visiting Griffith Observatory is crowded but has stunning panoramic views (so so special at night!). For daytime views (and elegant art), we love The Getty Villa in Pacific Palisades! The Villa isn’t that far from Santa Monica Pier, so you could see both in a few hours if you wanted.
- If you want art, LACMA is a classic. This museum has a popular streetlight installation that everyone wants a picture of! The museum usually seems big enough that we don’t feel cramped, even with its popularity and many guests.
- If you want to stay in the city, walking along Melrose is a trendy thing to do. This street isn’t as popular with tourists as say, Hollywood Boulevard, but it’s still often busy with us locals who enjoy the street art, shops, and cafes/restaurants on the walk!
- If you want good food and/or vibrant night life, you’ll easily find it! When in doubt, yelp is your friend. You seriously shouldn’t have a hard time finding a nearby place people rave about!
Hope this helped start your ideas for visiting Los Angeles! If you have any more specific questions we can clarify on, we’re happy to hear your details and give fuller answers! So excited to hear what comes of your travels.
