Los AngelesUnited States of America

The glamorous City of Angels has attracted visitors for centuries. For a perfect West Coast break of beaches, movie stars and museums, you should come too.

The allure of Los Angeles, America's second biggest city, is undeniable. It may not have the history of London or the style of Paris, but when it comes to entertainment, LA can't be beat. With fabulous weather all year round, and with a strong possibility of bumping into a genuine movie star, LA makes for a great holiday.

Given its world-famous film industry and all the razzmatazz that goes alongside that, it's no surprise that LA is one of the world’s most creative cities. Its museums such as LACMA, the Los Angeles County Museum of Art and the Getty Center have an experimental edge that is often missing in other American city museums. It might be known as an urban jungle, but it’s surprisingly easy to escape to nature in LA.

At Santa Monica Pier and Venice Beach, you can experience beach culture in all its glitzy glory, and seeing the men and women working out at Muscle Beach (Arnold Schwarzenegger's old hangout) is not to be missed.

It's not all glitz and glamour – though there is plenty of that – but plenty of culture, too. Science fans will enjoy searching for stars at the Griffith Observatory, while the prehistoric remains at the La Brea Tar Pits are a massive draw. Life under water is the attraction of the Aquarium of the Pacific and history buffs will enjoy a visit to the USS Iowa.

Universal Studios is a must-visit to see real-life film sets and experience some awesome rides, while a stroll along the Hollywood Walk of Fame offers the chance to celebrate the biggest stars of stage and screen who have been immortalised for ever with brass plaques on the pavement.

So whatever you do, from studio tours to museum jaunts to trips to the beaches of LA, a holiday in the City of Angels is guaranteed to leave you star-struck.

Perfect city to understand the extreme highs and lows of American and Western culture. The extremes of wealth and privilege sit alongside horrific poverty and destitution.
