Some great things to do in Los Angeles
Universal Studios Hollywood – Get ready for the ultimate Hollywood experience! With thrilling theme park rides and shows, a real working movie studio and Los Angeles’ best shops, restaurants and cinemas at CityWalk, Universal Studios Hollywood is a unique experience that’s fun for the whole family.
Six Flags Magic Mountain – Known world wide for the best thrills, Six Flags Magic Mountain features 14 world-class roller coasters and over 100 rides, games and attractions for the entire family. Six Flags Magic Mountain is bursting at the seams with a whole lineup of excitement and fun for everyone!
La Brea Tar Pits – A fascinating look at life in Los Angeles before the people moved in – long before, in fact. The still-oozing tar pits have trapped and preserved a mind-boggling array of creatures over the past 30,000 years, including woolly mammoths, dire wolves and sabre-toothed cats – and you can see them all.
Take a Real Studio Tour – If what you want is a closer look into how films are made, then one of these behind-the-scenes studio tours is just what you’re looking for.
Getty Museum – The Getty’s architecture is so beautiful that you’ll like it, even if you don’t want to see their superb art collection.
Santa Monica Pier – It’s not just a walkway that goes out over the water, but an old-fashioned seaside amusement park with rides, an arcade, historic carousel and a small aquarium.
Los Angeles Fashion District – This downtown area is a great place to shop ’til you drop – and get fabulous bargains, too.
Los Angeles County Museum of Art – It’s the largest art museum in the Western U.S., with collections that appeal to almost any taste.
Griffith Park – Home of the Los Angeles Zoo, Griffith Park Observatory, Travel Town and the Greek Theatre.
Queen Mary – Some like the old ocean liner because of its long history. Others visit to see the luxury of bygone days, when this ship was the world’s biggest and fastest. Others are drawn to its haunted history.
Old Town Pasadena – Historic downtown Pasadena is filled with shops and restaurants, and is a very popular nightspot.

The Largest Bachata, Salsa & Kizomba-Zouk Festival in the USA!
It will change your life!
