Experience a Phenomenal Vacation in Southern California

Southern California is a fantastic vacation destination for people of all ages, and not only because there is so much to do and see. A few other reasons why everyone needs to visit Southern California at some point in their life are that the weather is beautiful, the history is unique, the roads lead to new and exciting places, and the food is extraordinary.

While California, as a whole, is amazing, it is the southern portion that draws travelers in from all over the world. Whether they are looking for culture in the big city, infamous people in another large city, fun and games at a theme park, or tranquil parks and sandy beaches, this area has it all.

Here are 4 areas that everyone must visit when they travel to Southern California:

Los Angeles

The hills rise high above the neighborhoods in this massive Californian city, which makes people wonder how the city ended up in the middle of such beautiful landscape. Not that anyone complains, because something must offset the tall skyscrapers and the miles of never-ending traffic jams.

One of the first things that everyone must do when they arrive in Los Angeles is walk down Rodeo Drive, as they imagine themselves capable of spending thousands of dollars with little thought at all. This is an excellent spot to capture a glimpse of a celebrity, although many of them will be inside the stores in personal dressing rooms that are off-limits to the general public.

The Getty is another destination that everyone loves in LA, as marble buildings stand above a circular garden, pools, and flowing fountains. The views from this area are spectacular, and many people are surprised at how quiet is seems despite the 405 freeway being right below it.

There are plenty of unusual things that visitors can do in Los Angeles, but a favorite is taking a stroll through the underground tunnels of the city. These tunnels are officially off limits, but a few people have managed to slip into them behind the Hall of Records on Temple Street. These tunnels were used by officials and their friends during prohibition, so that they could imbibe out of sight of the public.


Hollywood may be part of Los Angeles, but many people think of it as its own fabulous space outside of the city. This has long been where the glitz and glamour of the entertainment world occurs, and everyone will find themselves walking along the Hollywood Walk of Fame at some point during their visit. That long walk is not easy to miss, so even if a person doesn’t plan on seeing it, they will stumble upon it eventually. This Walk of Fame goes along Hollywood Boulevard and Vine Street and there are currently more than two thousand six hundred stars down on the sidewalks.

One of the best ways to see the most of all the iconic items in Hollywood is to take a guided walking tour. There are plenty of them available, with popular ones including Behind the Scenes Walking Tours, Hidden Hollywood Walking Tours, and the Hollywood Ghost Tours. If a traveler isn’t that keen on walking, a tour on the Hop on Hop off sightseeing bus will accomplish the same goal with less of a workout.

Numerous television shows are taped in Hollywood and it is possible for visitors to get tickets to sit in the audience for many of them. People may need to request these tickets in advance, so that they are guaranteed entrance on the day of their choice.


Disneyland may not have as many parks as Disney World does, but that doesn’t mean that visitors of all ages will not enjoy the fun and excitement that Disneyland Park and Disney California Adventure Park offers. Disneyland has eight themed lands including Main Street USA, Frontierland, New Orleans Square, Tomorrowland, Mickey’s Toontown, Fantasyland, Adventureland, and Critter Country, while the Adventure Park also has eight themed lands that focus on the stories of the characters from Disney, Pixar, and other exciting venues.

While everyone will love the rides, it is the entertainment that really shines in these two parks. Whether guests are meeting their favorite characters or watching the Paint the Night performance, everyone will have a great time. No one will want to miss the Pixar Play Parade or Mickey and the Magical Map, and everyone will be singing along with the cast of Frozen at the Hyperion.
