Los Angeles

— 4 nights

City of Angels

Surrounded by mountain ranges, forests, valleys, beaches, and deserts, the metropolitan area of Los Angeles is home to over 17 million people.
Step out of the city life by going to Manhattan Beach and 26-Mile Bike Path. Hollywood Bowl Museum and Santa Monica Pier are good opportunities to explore the local culture. Explore the numerous day-trip ideas around Los Angeles: Main Beach (in Laguna Beach), Ocean Avenue (in Santa Monica) and Dana Point (Dana Point Parasail & Salt Creek Beach). There's still lots to do: explore the different monuments and memorials at Pierce Brothers Westwood Village Memorial Park, engage your brain at California Science Center, get engrossed in the history at Skirball Cultural Center, and make a trip to The Wizarding World of Harry Potter.

From there you can hit up all of the Cape's other small towns, renowned for their comfortable bed and breakfasts and distinctive cuisine of fresh fish and oyster dishes.
