Santa Monica & Redondo Beach
On the western edge of Los Angeles, Santa Monica Beach has an array of beachside hotels for active vacationers. Step out of your Los Angeles hotel and play volleyball, go cycling or inline skating or just wiggle your toes in the warm sand. Take your pick of the shops and restaurants of Third Street Promenade and Main Street. To the east is Bergamont Station, an enclave of galleries and home of the Santa Monica Museum of Art. A drive further south on Pacific Coast Highway takes you to the mellower Redondo Beach and its family-friendly hotels, fresh seafood and pier.

North and east of West Hollywood is the center of the film industry, Hollywood. Easy to reach by the metro, get a Los Angeles hotel here if you want to navigate the city without a car.

Take in a movie old or new at one of the many cinemas or just relax under the celestial stars at a Hollywood Bowl concert. Let upcoming comedians entertain you at the Laugh Factory or feel the chill of goose bumps on a haunted Hollywood tour.
