To celebrate our all American week over here on the Real Gap blog, we’re going to be teaching the world about the US of A, and where better to start than LA? The home of the rich and famous, the Hollywood Walk of Fame and Mickey Mouse, Los Angeles has it all and with our USA Experience you’ll be able to explore LA from top to bottom. We’ve been to LA before and we loved it, but where were the best places we visited along the way?
Getty Museum: The word ‘museum’ would usually bore us all to tears, but the Getty is phenomenal! With more art exhibits than you could shake a stick at, you’ll be busy looking at the weird and wonderful at the museum for hours- and the plot hosts the best views in LA of the city. Nice!
Santa Monica Pier: Full to the brim of fun and games, arcade attractions and amazing views of the beach and beyond, Santa Monica’s pier is definitely worth a visit whilst you’re in LA.
Beverley Center: Shopping your forte? Then head over to the Beverley Center, one of the biggest malls in LA. With a Bloomingdales and Macy’s under their belt (along with a trillion other stores) you’re sure to come away with loads of American goodies to take home. Our end, we have the battered wallet to prove it!
Hollywood Sign: It’s worth the snap alone, right? Admittedly it is a little strange seeing the Hollywood sign ‘in person’ (and driving up a hill to get close enough to capture it in all its glory!) but for the bragging rights alone, it’s well worth getting yourself on the case. Imagine the Facebook cover photo possibilities?
Disneyland: Sitting pretty as the original Disney theme park, become a kid again by going to Disneyland! Sitting just outside of central LA in Anaheim, not only will you have the chance to feel about five years old again, but you can get your autograph booked signed by the main mouse himself (RESULT).
If you'd like to experience a little bit more of America, our USA Experience is a crackin' place to start! The tour ends in LA too, so you'll have plenty of time to explore the city.
