Los Angeles

Sightseeing in Los Angeles presents certain challenges. For one, the city is immense, stretching out in every direction, and its various attractions are often miles apart. Also, since it’s an agglomeration of small and previously separate towns, LA lacks a definite focal point, making it hard to get to grips with the city’s character.

The best way to go about your sightseeing is to use the various tour buses that connect the attractions, or hail a taxicab. Unless you are a thrill seeker, avoid driving and public transport, especially at night. LA is a year-round destination, although it can get pretty hot during the summer months of July to September. Key sights are the tours of the great movie production houses of Universal Studios and Warner Brothers, the glitz and glamour of Hollywood, the original Disneyland, and the vibrant beach communities of Venice Beach and Santa Monica.

Los Angeles’s Mediterranean climate is generally warm and pleasant all year round. Protected from extremes of temperature and humidity by the Santa Monica and San Gabriel mountains, and influenced by the warm, moist air from the Pacific, its summers are dry and sunny and winters cool and wet with winter temperatures averaging between 48°F (9°C) and 68°F (20°C). Offshore breezes cool the beach communities during the hot summer months when coastal highs reach 74°F (23°C), but inland temperatures can rise to well over 90°F (32°C), especially in the numerous canyons and valleys of the area.
