Hire a car in Los Angeles

Los Angeles' Hollywood glamour is no secret, but the city rolls out plenty of other surprises down the red carpet.

The second-largest city in USA in terms of population, you can only really understand its sprawling size by visiting. The city has no true centre – instead, freeways criss-cross for miles to connect various neighbourhoods. Beyond its infamously unbearable traffic (avoid rush hour), the City of Angels is a mix of metropolitan pleasures, scenic wanderlust and creative overload.

Food city

Dine like the stars

If you're hoping to indulge in your typical fine dining here, then you've come to the wrong city. L.A. is by far one of the top dining spot in the USA, if not the world. Unlike New York or Paris, though, it favors top-tier snacks and hangover food over upscale restaurants, redefining the traditional five-star food experience.

The geography, agriculture and multiculturalism of L.A. have stirred up an ambitious food scene, that is as pure as it is unexpected.

Food here is true to its roots, you can find tacos and tortillas that rivals any Mexican canteen, yet, its chefs aren't scared to mash up a variety of regional flavors.

L.A.'s favourite foods and restaurants are an embodiment of the city's spirit, which will no doubt have you coming back for more.

Must try food

Taco take-over

Tacos are probably the most iconic and essential dish in L.A. With nearly 50 percent of the city being of Hispanic origin, you can expect nothing but the best. From street side food trucks to the newest fashionable joints, there is a taco for every occasion. Plus, the food's (usually) affordable price makes it a drool-worth budget eat.

Here are a couple of places to get started on your taco tour of L.A.

HomeState: perfect handmade breakfast tortillas served up with friendly Southern hospitality.
Tito's Tacos: comfort food at its best, quality ingredients highlight its authenticity.
Guerilla Tacos: this food truck is in demand citywide. Just look out for the line of hungry fans chasing it down the road.

Local knowledge

Natural excursions

As much as Los Angelenos thrive in their urban surroundings, they revel in the natural Californian beauty. Not only is the city lined by fine beaches, but it is blessed with spectacular mountains and valleys. And the year-round sunny weather make it a crime not to take advantage of what mother nature has to offer.

Hiking is L.A.'s version of after work drinks and an activity that tops residents' lists of things to do.

Griffith Park – follow the Charlie Turner Trail to reach Mount Hollywood for a 360-degree view of the city.

Runyon Canyon – within the Hollywood Hills, this is the spot for a thorough workout.

Portuguese Bend Reserve – this maze of trails is rarely crowded, yet offers extensive views of the Pacific Ocean.

Art and architecture

L.A.'s energy has (unsurprisingly) formed a powerful creative scene that artists flock to.

Architectural landmarks that seem to defy gravity and artwork that doesn't just think outside the box, but reshapes the box itself, shows that the city is not scared to experiment. Dreaming is a business here, which spurs on original and artistic works like nowhere else.

Los Angeles County Museum of Art – the largest museum in Western USA, it houses over 150,000 objects with collections from around the world.

Hollyhock House – the first L.A. project by Frank Lloyd Wright, the influential American architect. You can see the Hollywood sign from the living room window.

The Broad Museum – this megaplex museum, stuffed with contemporary art, is an architectural artwork in itself.
