Our Top-Rated Attractions We Liked in Los Angeles

 

When I drove one time from Houston, Texas to Los Angeles, California I didn’t know that there were so many places to visit. Many friends told me about L.A., but I never knew there were so many good spots all around California that were so much fun to go to.

For most, Los Angeles is synonymous with Hollywood. However, this city in Southern California extends much beyond it. A culturally diverse city, it showcases all of the best of nature to outstanding museums, lip-smacking cuisine, incredible shopping and much more. We showcase some of the top attractions of this perfect gateway city. Stay hooked:

Hollywood Walk of Fame

A destination by itself, Hollywood has its own distinctive iconic sites to visit. One such site is Hollywood Walk of Fame which runs next to Hollywood Boulevard and Vine Street. During your walk, you will encounter the historic Hollywood Roosevelt hotel, the legendary TLC Chinese Theater, Academy Awards and so much more. Any Hollywood buff cannot escape on the experience.

Griffith Park and Griffith Observatory

Free to the public, it is another hallmark destination of Los Angeles. Housing the world’s most advanced projector; you will be lost in the cosmic world. You can enjoy viewing the moon and the planets through the Zeiss telescope. Its other exhibits will take you to an entirely different world.

Museum of Jurassic Technology

Do not confuse this museum with Steven Spielberg’s Jurassic Park. You will be completely blown away by the surreal assemblage of curiosities. Right from impossibly tiny sculptures to a scientific miracle of a bat flying through the wall; you will have a hard time distinguishing fact and fiction.

Disneyland Resort

The ultimate fantasy of both adults and children, you cannot skip on this destination especially if you have a family in tow. A host of thrilling rides, encounter with Disney characters every step of the way, shopping hubs, restaurants, hotels etc- the resort has it all! There is something for just about everybody.

Santa Monica

You can enjoy this unique 3.5-mile stretch of sand in many ways. A chic yet laid-back place, it boasts of an amazing mix of crowd from surfers to yoga devotees to upscale techies and business addicted buffs. You can shop from anything quirky to top-labels. Sunbathing, swimming, people watching, playing volleyball etc are just some of the activities you can enjoy here. It is the perfect place if you are looking to unwind yourself.

Jumbo’s Clown Room

Unleash your raucous side in Jumbo’s Clown Room. Popular as a bikini bar; its major highlight is its nightly stage shows by talented dancers and contortionists. You can enjoy the performers singing metal, rock, retro and anything that takes their fancy. Pictures are not allowed here and tips are a norm here.

Cathedral of Our Lady of the Angels

Informally known as COLA, this cathedral stands apart from all cathedrals of the world. Designed by Spanish architect, Rafael Moneo and spanning over 58,000-square-foot of an area; it was open to public only in 2002. If you are expecting classic aesthetics; you will be taken aback by its modern vibe which manages to successfully exude the city’s history and diverse culture as well as its iconic sunlight. The cathedral and its garden areas trigger a never experienced feeling inside you.

There are plenty of other attractions in Los Angeles. No matter what your preference is, you are bound to find something here.

Now, on my way back I’m going to visit Phoenix, Arizona, and Dallas, TX. I have some business to handle in those cities. I primarily work in real estate and development. Sometimes I have to be on site of where our next project is because we demolish some old buildings and build new ones. We hire contractors and architects to overlook he project with us. The businesses we work with are national and very helpful. They work fast and are the best in their trade. One of them for example is Bright & Smart Commercial, here’s their site, www.texasconstructioncleaning.com

We also hired asphalt paving companies, electricians, plumbers, etc. Most importantly we just want to see the finished project like everyone else does.

I can’t wait for our road trip through those cities.
