During summer 2013, one of my biggest dreams came true: to go to the USA. I spent a month in California. I was based in San Diego, but I traveled during weekends and I had the opportunity to spend 3 days in Los Angeles.
3 days were not enough to explore the whole city, but I had time to discover the main touristic places. Discover my top 5!
#1 Hollywood Boulevard
Walking through the Walk of Fame was awesome! And very looooong, because I wanted to take a picture of each star with a celebrity I like, so I was stopping every 10 seconds! 🙂
This boulevard is full of people dressed as Mickey Mouse, Superman, Minions… you can take a picture with them if you give a tip. You will find also lots of shops to buy souvenirs from Los Angeles.
The Madame Tussauds Museum is located on this boulevard. The visit is worth it, even if I have to admit that I prefer the one in London.
#2 Hollywood sign
Seeing the famous Hollywood sign is a must-do in Los Angeles. Unfortunately, I saw it from afar.
TIP : this website might help you to find the best spot.
#3 Universal Studios
It was really fun to visit the Universal Studios and to be plunged into movie’s decors: Jurassic Park, King Kong, Fast & Furious… The visit is definitely worth it, especially if you love cinema!
My favorite moment? Discovering Wisteria Lane (Desperate Housewives).
#4 Santa Monica
I truly loved Santa Monica’s area and its atmosphere. Santa Monica’s beach is typically Californian, with the small lifeguard houses. And there is a luna park right on the beach!
#5 Beverly Hills
I had the opportunity to stop at the famous Beverly Hills sign and to have a walk in this beautiful area of Los Angeles. I wish I could spend a little bit more time there.
Please note that I went there a few years ago, and at this time I was not planning to write a blog. Therefore I miss some information and good pictures. 🙂
Hopefully, I will have the chance to go back!
