In the City of Angels

If you visit LA for the first time, you can’t go wrong with staying in West Hollywood. The neighborhood is home to the Hollywood Walk of Fame, the Sunset Strip, known for its nightlife, and is minutes away from the scenic Mullholand Drive full of hiking trails and beautiful overlooks of the city’s many hills. From this neighborhood, one can coast down the Sunset or Santa Monica boulevards to Santa Monica and visit the Santa Monica Pier featured in many movies. Venice beach boardwalk is also worth a visit, for its interesting characters as well as the Muscle beach, popular with bodybuilders. Two of my favorite places in LA, however, are hands down the elegant Getty museum located picturesquely on top of a hill (and also not too far from West Hollywood), and Zuma beach in Malibu. If you want to avoid June gloom, best time to visit according to the locals is in August and September.
