See where the rich and famous live, play, shop and star in the latest blockbuster movies!

The Original Family Vacation Town


L.A. practically invented theme parks (Universal Studios Hollywood, Disneyland, Knott’s Berry Farm). That’s just the beginning. The true test of a family-friendly place is: would parents enjoy themselves with or without the children? In L.A. the answer is yes. The Getty Center is super kid-friendly -- a gallery to try on costumes just like in the paintings and spacious intriguing gardens to run off energy. The George C. Page Museum of La Brea Discoveries is a hit with all dinosaur-philes. The Petersen Automotive Museum is favorite for those who only dream of the day that they will have a driver’s license. The L.A. Zoo is definitely an all-dayer for both generations, with the Red Ape Rainforest high on everyone’s list.

From Raphael's Madonna To Madonna's Bustier

L.A. boasts many magnificent museums with masterpieces (Van Gogh, Rembrandt, Monet, Picasso) to rival the best collections in Europe: the acropolis-like Getty Center, Los Angeles County Museum of Art, the Huntington Library and Gardens (especially strong in English painters) and the Norton Simon. But that’s only part of the story. Several of L.A.’s museums pay homage to California culture: Autry Museum of Western Heritage (honoring both the real and reel-life cowboys of the Southwest), Petersen Automotive Museum (reveling in L.A.’s car culture), Frederick’s of Hollywood Celebrity Lingerie Hall of Fame and the Museum of Neon Art.

L.A.'s Movie Palaces: From Orpheum to ArcLight

“Movie Palace.” The words conjure up fabulously extravagant movie houses. It’s only natural that the home of the movie industry should have a sentimental attachment to these grande dames. From the razzle dazzle of Downtown (Palace, Mayan, Orpheum) to San Pedro’s Warner Grand and, of course, Grauman’s Chinese -- all these ladies are open for tours and/or movies. Disney restored Hollywood’s El Capitan (where the curtain alone is worth the price of admission) and American Cinematheque (specializing in tributes and retrospectives) has brought the exotic Egyptian back to life. The tradition continues with Universal Studios Cinema (a mega-plex right next door to the studio itself!) and ArcLight, part of the Cinerama Dome complex, that is strictly a 21th century movie-going experience with assigned seats, ushers, limited previews, no pre-show ads, a cafe and a jazzy lobby gift shop.
