The 7 Coolest Things About Los Angeles




There are few cities in the world that can match Los Angeles' entertainment options. No matter where your interests lie, the City of Angels can satisfy them. In a city with limitless possibilities, the following are the seven coolest things about LA.

1. Rooftop Bars

Many hotels in Los Angeles have rooftop bars that feature pools, music and great people watching. There are few things more Hollywood than enjoying a poolside cocktail while overlooking the city at The Standard Downtown LA or Petit Ermitage in West Hollywood. You might even spot a celebrity!

2. Great Sports

If you love sports, you'll enjoy Los Angeles. Basketball fans flock downtown to watch the Lakers and Clippers while baseball fans love seeing the Dodgers and Angels. The temperate climate hasn't tempered the excitement of local hockey fans either; fans of the sport can enjoy the LA Kings and the Anaheim Ducks.

3. High-End Shopping

You don't need to be an actor or musician to shop like a star in Tinseltown (though it helps). Those staying at The Beverly Hills Hotel or surrounding area can enjoy Rodeo Drive while The Ivy and Robertson Avenue are also ideal for serious shopping.

4. The Great Outdoors

Los Angeles' weather is sunny and mild year-round, and there are plenty of ways to enjoy those lovely conditions. There are miles of beaches along the coast for water sports or relaxing. LA's hills and mountains are also great for hiking; check out Runyon Canyon Park or Griffith Park.

5. The Best Concerts and Shows

If you enjoy music or stand-up comedy, Los Angeles is the city for you. Whether you want to go to a stadium concert at the Hollywood Bowl or prefer intimate venues such as Whisky a Go-Go, fans of live music are in luck. If comedy is your thing, try The Laugh Factory, the UCB Theater or the Hermosa Beach Magic Club.






6. Museums
Los Angeles isn't simply about Hollywood glitz and glamor. The city is the home of several world-class museums. The J. Paul Getty Center and Los Angeles Museum of Art are perfect for modern and classic art lovers while The Hollywood Museum is a tribute to the city's motion picture legacy.

7. Picturesque Drives

The topography of Los Angeles combines with modern architecture to create a driver's paradise. Mulholland Drive--atop the Santa Monica Mountains--gives you breathtaking views of the city and the San Fernando Valley before weaving past the Hollywood Hills' expansive mansions. Head up to Malibu along the Pacific Coast Highway for a great afternoon of sightseeing and driving.
