Los Angeles is as much a fantasy as it is a physical city. A mecca for face-lifts, film noir, shopping starlets, beach bodies, and mind-numbing traffic, it sprawls across 467 square mi; add in the surrounding five-county metropolitan area, and you've got an area of more than 34,000 square mi.

Things You Can’t Miss

1/8
Samantha's Pick Getting In-N-Out

Whenever I am in Los Angeles I have only one culinary goal: Get to an In-N-Out Burger. Those meaty bundles wrapped in wax paper are a fast-food dream.

Samantha's Pick The Original Muscle Beach in Santa Monica

I love watching the amazing acrobatics of modern-day Tarzans as they swing, flip and spin on The Flying Rings. It’s a free circus in the sand.

Visit the Museum of Contemporary Art

MOCA is the only art museum in Los Angeles dedicated to showing works from 1940 to the present. Their exhibits are often challenging, and always ambitious.

Soak in the Vibe at Venice Beach

Pack your camera, and take a stroll amongst the palm-reading body-building hacky-sacking roller-skaters of Venice Beach. There’s always something going on.

Enjoy the Views at Griffith Observatory

See the Hollywood Hills to the north, Downtown LA to the south, and everything else in between, at Griffith Observatory. Admission, and parking, is free!

La Brea Tar Pits

The malodorous muck has yielded more than a million Ice Age fossils. They’re displayed at the Page Museum, where you’ll see how they were excavated.

Walk the Rodeo Drive Runway

Conjure up Julia Roberts in Pretty Woman as you stroll from Louis Vuitton to Chanel. You’ll feel fancy even if you’re just window-shopping.

TCL Chinese Theatre

Formerly Grauman’s Chinese Theatre, it’s the spot where Hollywood’s elite have left their mark — literally. Pick up a map and find the hand- or footprints of hundreds of film stars.
