See a movie star. Sip a cocktail on a rooftop bar at sunset. Slip on designer shoes in a Beverly Hills boutique. Play at Universal Studios Hollywood theme park, explore world-class museums, or see your favorite band in West Hollywood. Welcome to California’s liveliest city, the entertainment capital of America, and one of the best restaurant scenes in North America. Downtown Los Angeles is the main hub, with Hollywood to the northwest, Pasadena and the San Fernando Valley to the east, and the inviting beaches of Santa Monica and Malibu to the west. And, Catalina Island is just a short ferry ride from Long Beach.
