Don't Miss Attractions in Los Angeles

Written by  Arielle Feger

When most people think of Los Angeles, they think of Beverly Hills, the Hollywood Walk of Fame, movie studios and celebrity homes. But there is much more to the so-called City of Angels than just flashing lights and wealth. There is history, nature, music - all working to create a culture truly unique to the area.

The Los Angeles Natural History Museum is a great place to begin any trip to Los Angeles. The Natural History Museum has an extensive collection of natural and cultural history, not only from this area but also from all over the world. Some of the artifacts are as old as 4.5 billion years. The museum is constantly developing new exhibits and programs to help visitors see what they call the “big picture” of the planet, in cultural and natural ways. And in July of 2013, the Natural History Museum is opening a groundbreaking exhibit called “Becoming Los Angeles.” This 14,000 square foot exhibit will include multi-media, artifacts, story telling, and design elements to create an interactive experience for those who wish to visit. This unique exhibit will touch on the eras that helped form Los Angeles’ identity, and what better way to get to know L.A. than by seeing its history right before your eyes?

Though not physically connected to the Natural History building, the George C. Page Museum is part of the NHM’s larger consortium of museums. The George C. Page Museum features artifacts from one of Los Angeles’ most famous attractions: the La Brea Tar Pits. The tar pits, which are situated right next to the museum within Hancock Park, are the result of thousands of years of tar seepage from the earth. Hundreds of tar-preserved remains of plants and animals have been found within the pits, the oldest dating back 38,000 years. Even a human has been found preserved in the tar - a woman who lived approximately 10,000 years ago. If you are interested in prehistoric (and even some more modern) history, the George C. Page Museum and the La Brea Tar Pits are perfect afternoon attractions.

If you’re looking for a bit of nature in the midst of the city, Griffith Park is all that you could ask for. Probably the most famous park in L.A., Griffith is home to golf courses, a Greek amphitheatre, picnic areas, a mini-railroad, ample hiking and equestrian trails, and of course, a view of the landmark Hollywood sign situated on Mount Lee. But the most interesting aspect of the park is the Griffith Observatory and accompanying planetarium. With stunning views of the surrounding Los Angeles area and the captivating Centered in the Universe show, the Griffith Observatory is a one-of-a-kind find in downtown L.A. 

Los Angeles may be home to recording studios, musical superstars, underground musical venues and more, but you can’t get more iconic than the Hollywood Bowl. The largest natural ampitheater in the world, it has hosted some of music’s top performers including The Beatles, Cher, Nat “King” Cole, Elton John, and Judy Garland to name a few. Whether you’re seeing the Los Angeles Philharmonic, an old musical favorite, or the latest pop sensation, the Hollywood Bowl is sure to provide you with an amazing musical experience that you will remember for years to come.

Whether you are strolling down Sunset Boulevard or having drinks at the exclusive Chateau Marmont, Los Angeles is a city that offers nothing less than perfection. You can choose to seek out the stars and visit their Hollywood homes or get beauty treatments at a luxury Beverly Hills Spa, or even enjoy “the world’s best chilidog” at Pink’s, but no matter what you choose to do, the experience is bound to be magical.
