Los Angeles — 3 nights

City of Angels

Surrounded by mountain ranges, forests, valleys, beaches, and deserts, the metropolitan area of Los Angeles is home to over 17 million people.
Get a sense of the local culture at Wine Tours & Tastings and Hollywood Bowl Museum. Step off the beaten path and head to Ronald Reagan Presidential Library and Museum and The Huntington Library, Art Museum and Botanical Gardens. Step out of Los Angeles to go to Malibu and see The Getty Villa, which is approximately 32 minutes away. There's still lots to do: explore the world behind art at The Broad, see the interesting displays at The Getty Center, enjoy the sand and surf at Santa Monica State Beach, and take a leisurely stroll along Santa Monica Pier.
