Los Angeles is home to Hollywood and the worlds most famous celebrities. There are numerous attractions and activities in LA which revolve around the film industry as well as its beautiful sandy beaches and iconic theme parks. Some of the highlights of this fabulous city lie in its affluent (and most recognised) neighbourhoods; Beverly Hills, Hollywood and the stunning coastline running between Malibu and Newport.
 
We highly recommend you visit the majestic whales and dolphins of Newport Landing, and if you decide on an afternoon cruise and feel the need to head out to sea again, we love the LA Dinner Cruise that departs at 6.30pm and includes a 3 course meal, live music and beautiful views over Newport Bay. 

A trip to the Californian city of LA would not be the same without the guided tour of Hollywood’s homes to the stars, a stroll down the Walk of Fame, the various film studios packed with current TV shows and movies being shot and the infamous theme parks – Universal Studios, Disneyland, Knott’s Berry Farm and Legoland.

If you are an animal lover, then the San Diego Zoo will amaze you; each area is designed to mirror the animal’s natural habitat and there's even a special Safari Park exhibit for an African adventure. As one of the world's major airports, Los Angeles is well served by the main international airlines. If you're after cheap flights to Los Angeles from the UK, several of the American carriers such as United and American Airlines operate direct services in addition to Air New Zealand, British Airways and Virgin Atlantic.

LA promises the holiday maker lots to see and do, great bars and restaurants to enjoy, a fabulous vibe and a whole lot of fun. Finding cheap flights with Directflights.com is easy and with a wide choice of accommodation you are bound to find the right hotel for you.

LA has an eclectic mix of cuisine on offer from the typical American to Mediterranean and Indian. Nothing beats a good hearty steak and our favourite has to be BOA Steakhouse on Sunset Boulevard - it’s chic, funky and has a fantastic outdoor patio to sip away at one of their many delicious cocktails.

Another of our favourite places to eat out in LA is along the glorious coastline at some of the most stunning beach-side restaurants. For a special occasion Geoffrey’s in Malibu is perfect, a beautiful setting with spectacular views and exquisite food, if you aren’t looking to blow the budget then in Long Beach you can find an tasty Mexican restaurant called CoCo Renos is a favourite among the locals. As soon as the sun sets bars all over the city start to fill up with the babble and excitement of the evening to come.

The beach bars along the Pacific coast are a great way to start the night, what could be better than a cocktail in hand at Aloha Sharkeez, Hermosa Beach, which is packed with the young crowd from the bar to the dance floor. Music lovers will love 14 below in neighbouring Santa Monica, it’s a quirky venue with live music appealing to every taste and Mondays are open mic night. For party lovers, A.D. is a massive club with the hottest DJ’s in town and multiple dance floors guaranteeing a great night!
