Of course, the beaches aren’t going to be much fun if it’s pouring it down every day and night of your trip. Luckily, Los Angeles is sunny almost all year around, so you won’t need to worry about packing any woolly jumpers or raincoats.

If you’re a fan of a good night out, you should probably know that Los Angeles is known to be the Entertainment Capital of the World, so it certainly won’t disappoint you. It doesn’t matter if you want a simple glass of wine in the evening, or a dance and a cocktail; LA’s bustling nightlife, and its many bars and clubs, will have exactly what you need.

4. The Food

Don’t even think about cooking while you’re in LA, as it’s wide range of amazing restaurants has got you covered. You can find any type of food in LA, from burgers to chow mein, to sushi, so you’ll truly be spoilt for choice. If you’re feeling peckish in the evening, you go and visit Sprinkles Cupcakes in Beverly Hills and try out their cupcake ATM (yes, you did read that right!).

5. The Museums

LA has more museums than any other city in the whole of America, so if you think that a calm day of culture is on the cards for your trip, then LA won’t disappoint. Whether you’re a fan of fine art or science, you will be able to find something to peak your interest.

6. The Movie Magic

LA really is a movie buff’s dream. Throughout the city, you can spot ridiculous amounts of sets and locations for your favourite TV shows and movies. The Wizarding World of Harry Potter and The Hollywood Walk of Fame are amazing and are definitely worth a visit too.

While LA isn’t the most unique city in America, it certainly isn’t overrated, and should definitely be visited at least once in your life.
