Our luxury Los Angeles holidays take you into the heart of one of the world’s most glamorous cities, packed with designer shops, renowned arts, and top-notch dining. From the chic streets of Beverly Hills, to the cool shores of Santa Monica and beaches of Malibu, this is holiday heaven.
There are few skylines are quite as iconic as LA’s, with the Hollywood sign illuminated high up in the hills evoking a real sense of glamour. Since the golden era of cinema, ‘the city of angels’ has been the spiritual home of the film industry, with studios like Paramount, Universal and Warner Brothers still offering behind-the-scenes tours for fans.
In Downtown LA, you can head to Union Station and wander through the grand Art Deco hallways. Or, stop by Rodeo Drive to find high-end fashion boutiques to browse and fabulous multi-cultural dining. On Hollywood Boulevard, you’ll find some of the most iconic venues, including the Chinese Theatre, though you’ll also want to stop to read the celebrated names gracing the Hollywood Walk of Fame. To finish the day off with lively nightlife and restaurants, be sure to head to West Hollywood.
If you’re looking for a slower pace, there’s a variety of breathtaking beaches to enjoy. Santa Monica, Long Beach and Malibu are famed for their beauty, with many people taking scenic drives down the coast to enjoy them. Or, to get away from the city for a while, take a canyon hike through the hills.
Whether you’re looking for an adventurous journey or a chilled-out escape, speak to Our Travel Specialists to tailor-make your perfect five-star holiday to Los Angeles.
