Destination 2

Sunny Los Angeles

The second place I will be visiting is Los Angeles, California.

To get from Vancouver to Los Angeles, I will be taking a flight using Air Canada which will take 2 hours and 50 minutes. The one way flight will cost only $137. The distance I will be covering is 2,055 kilometres. I'll be staying in Los Angeles for 2 days and 1 night. During my visit, I'll be staying at the 3 star, Sheraton Los Angeles Downtown Hotel for $165 during the night.

Los Angeles was not always such a huge popular city known as the home of tons and tons of celebrities. Hollywood is the central region of L.A known as the motion picture industry of the United States. When Hollywood merged with the city of Los Angeles in 1910, it quickly dominated the world of the film industry.

To start off my first day in Los Angeles, I thought I'd go straight into Hollywood. A hike to the Hollywood sign would be an up close and awesome experience. I will also go visit the Walk of Fame and Grauman's Chinese Theatre. The Walk of Fame has over 200 celebrity names with either their hand or feet imprints beside their star. Grauman's Chinese Theatre is a famous attraction and is a great place to catch a movie as it is right behind the Walk of Fame. During my second day in this sunny city, I thought I'd go visit the beach. Venice Beach is well known and offers lots to do. The long 2.5 km boardwalk is good for bikers, rollerbladers, skateboarders or just to take a walk. There are tons of entertainers on the beach showing off all their talents to amuse the tourists and hopefully earn a little bit of cash. You can also workout with tons of bodybuilders that spend their day there to gain muscles under the warm sunshine. There are lots of little shops to buy souvenirs or get a temporary tattoo and food places to enjoy. Venice Beach is also great for surfing as it offers nice waves throughout the day.
