Attractions in Los Angeles

Many attractions & Must See in Los Angeles

Many of L.A.’s attractions revolve around the city’s two most obvious charms: Hollywood and the Pacific Ocean. Tourists head to Hollywood and Beverly Hills to check out the history and glam of early moviemaking or hope for a celebrity sighting, while at the many theme parks around the city, visitors can go on thrilling rides or spend a day at Disneyland: the happiest place on earth.

Grauman’s Chinese Theater

Perhaps the most iconic Hollywood building ever constructed, this elaborate theater located on Hollywood Boulevard opened in 1927 and boasts a stunning Chinese-style façade. Through the years, Grauman’s has played host to countless red carpet film openings and hundreds of the most famous stars in Hollywood have graced the seats inside. The front courtyard is now home to the hand and footprints of many of these stars, and everyday, hundreds of tourists crowd in to see how their shoe sizes compare with their favorite movie stars. Thirty-minute guided walking tours of the theater are offered daily, but it is just as easy to purchase a ticket for whichever movie is currently showing, as Grauman’s is also a working 7-screen cinema.

Celebrities’ Homes in Beverly Hills

The first thing many tourists want to do in L.A. is see the celebrities’ homes in Beverly Hills. Several tour companies operate driving tours through Beverly Hills, offering a glimpse of the front gates, or sometimes the houses themselves, of the biggest stars. Starline Tours operates daily van tours through Beverly Hills and Bel-Air, stopping at the homes of celebrities like Madonna, Angelina Jolie and Sean Connery, to name a few. Tickets are around $40, departing from your hotel or Grauman’s Chinese Theater.


No trip to the City of Angels would be complete without a stop at the most magical place on earth. Disneyland is, without a doubt, the most popular Los Angeles attraction, whether you want to rocket through the galaxy on Space Mountain or visit Mickey and the gang, you’ll definitely find that Disneyland is a happy place to be, particularly with their newest expansion: California Adventure. Disneyland is located in Anaheim, about an hour’s drive from downtown LA. 1-day adult tickets are $72, or $97 for the “Park Hopper”, which gets you into all of the Disney attractions.

Walk of Fame

The glimmering gold stars that line the sidewalks on both sides of Hollywood Boulevard and Vine Street are undoubtedly the most glamorous of L.A.’s attractions. These sidewalk stars immortalize celebrities for their contributions to the world of film, TV and radio. There is no entrance fee to see the Walk of Fame: simply start on Hollywood Boulevard at either Gower Street or La Brea Avenue and walk with your head down!
