Los Angeles – The City
Glamorous Hollywood is ideal for celebrity spotting and if you head to Hollywood
Boulevard, you can visit Grauman’s Chinese Theater, where many stars have left their
prints in the cement outside, and see the famous Hollywood Walk of Fame. If you
want to shop like a celebrity, head for the designer stores on Rodeo Drive and Wilshire
Boulevard, or try the eclectic stores on Melrose Avenue.
Pack a picnic and head off in your rental car to Griffith Park for a great view
of the Hollywood sign, and to visit the Los Angeles Zoo and Botanical Gardens. You
can also use your hire car to get to the Universal Studios theme park where you
can enjoy high-adrenaline rides and some great shows.
Los Angeles is famous for its beach cities. At Venice Beach, the boardwalk runs
parallel to the beach, and skaters, cyclists and boarders weave their way through
the crowds. Park your rental car and explore the shops and stalls, or see the famous
“Muscle Beach”, where Arnold Schwarzenegger used to work out. Alternatively, head
for Santa Monica, and visit Santa Monica Pier, which has been used as a location
in many movies, or shop in Third Street Promenade.
Attractions in the Los Angeles Area
The Disneyland Resort is probably the best-known attraction in the Los Angeles area.
It’s located in Anaheim, in Orange County, and it will only take about 40 minutes
to get there from Los Angeles International Airport in your rental car. There is
so much to do there that it’s best to stay in Anaheim for a few days so that you
can explore the resort before heading back to Los Angeles in your hire car. You
could also use a rental car to get to another famous California theme park, Knott’s
Berry Farm, which is about 10 minutes’ drive from Anaheim.
The desert city of Palm Springs is situated at the foot of the Mount San Jacinto
Mountains, just 110 miles east of Los Angeles, and it’s easy to reach in a hire
car. Palm Springs is known as a celebrity retreat and has quaint boutiques, art
galleries and restaurants to suit all tastes.
You could also break up your holiday by driving to the gambler’s paradise of Las
Vegas. Spend a few days in one of Sin City’s famous casino-hotels, take a stroll
down the Strip, or take advantage of your rental car by driving to the Grand Canyon.
