Los Angeles — 5 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.
Give yourself a bit of retail therapy at Montana Avenue and Annenberg Community Beach House. Your itinerary includes some good beach time at Santa Monica Bay and Santa Monica State Beach. Change things up with these side-trips from Los Angeles: Beverly Hills (Frederick R. Weisman Art Foundation & Rodeo Drive). There's much more to do: examine the collection at The Getty Center, get engrossed in the history at Autry Museum of the American West, explore the world behind art at Norton Simon Museum, and look for gifts at Edelweiss Chocolates.

For photos, traveler tips, and more tourist information, go to the Los Angeles vacation planner.
