STROLL THE STREETS OF BEVERLY HILLS This is one of LA’s swankiest neighbourhoods, home to high-end shopping street Rodeo Drive and plenty of famous faces. No doubt you’ve seen Hollywood divas roam these shopping streets on TV or the silver screen - why not give it a go yourself?

LIVE THE DREAM IN HOLLYWOOD Home to the iconic Hollywood sign, Hollywood Boulevard and its Walk of Fame, the TLC Chinese Theatre, Universal Studios and Runyon Canyon Park, this is one action-packed destination! If you’re keen to avoid the tourist trail, check out the Hollywood Museum full of movie memorabilia, or take a stroll around the gorgeous Lake Hollywood Reservoir. LOUNGE AT LAGUNA BEACH The Laguna coastline offers a stunning array of sandy shores. Lounge seaside and soak up some rays, or get active and swim, surf or skimboard in the waves. Enjoy a nature walk, slip away and relax at a blissful spa or sign up for a yoga retreat. The Laguna Art Museum is a must for art enthusiasts, then there’s all the shopping and dining you could dream of!

Hire a bike or stroll along the pier and take a ride on the ferris wheel for its expansive city and sea views. Catch a glimpse of the historic carousel and soda fountain, check out the original Muscle Beach or visit the Santa Monica Farmers’ Markets for some great fresh produce and maybe some celeb sightings.
