11 Must-See Attractions for a Dreamy Trip to Los Angeles
A relic from another time, Clifton’s is a 1930’s style cafeteria eatery that’s recently undergone an astounding renovation. Keeping with the California themed vibe, the building is full of outdoorsy murals and even a giant faux redwood that seemingly grows out of the middle of the floor.
There’s the woodsy main cafeteria area, an Art Deco soda fountain, an elegant dining room complete with taxidermy, plenty of bars with specialty cocktails, and a hidden Tiki room featuring a restored wood-paneled speedboat.
Whether you’re looking for a unique LA experience or just want to explore the five stories of themed rooms, Clifton’s is truly a blast from the past.
As Los Angeles museums go, the Getty Center consistently comes out on top for both the beauty of its grounds and its impressive collection. Set on top of an 110 acre hillside in the Santa Monica Mountains, the museum and surrounding property is a landmark to the artistic spirit of Los Angeles.
Its permanent collection includes hundreds of classic European paintings, sculptures and decorative pieces in addition to rotating photography exhibitions and temporary modern art exhibits. Even just walking around the gardens, admiring the architecture or enjoying the view of the city warrants a trip, especially because admission is free.
Hollywood Walk of Fame
A must do in Hollywood is of course the Walk of Fame on Hollywood Boulevard. It’s here that actors, musicians, comedians and performers of every variety are honored with their very own star-shaped landmark.
Aside from finding your favorite performer’s star, there are a number of other places of interest along the way. Perhaps the most well known is the Grauman’s Chinese Theater where you can also find the foot and hand prints of stars like Johnny Depp and Marilyn Monroe.
