Top Five Spots to Visit in Los Angeles

The top five destinations you must visit on your next stop in Los Angeles, USA.

1. SANTA MONICA PIER

Ice-cream dots, roller coaster rides, and stunning sunsets. If you're going to do Santa Monica pier, do it just before sunset to get a glimpse of LA's true beauty. Jump on the Ferris Wheel or settle yourself in for a drink at the end of the pier. If you're into tourist gifts, this is your number one stop to get your LA cap or portrait shot. You'll feel like you're in the middle of the Forrest Gump movie. Cliché? Absolutely.

2. IN & OUT BURGER

It's Bella Hadid's favourite place for a cheat meal and everyone who has ever been to Coachella as made it a post-hangover meal. So why would you miss it? With a mere three burger options on the menu and simple French fries, In & Out know how to make a classic burger meal. Local's tip: Make it ALL animal style, you will not regret it.

3. LAKERS OR CLIPPERS GAME AT THE STAPLES CENTER

Dying to fit into LA? Or perhaps you just want to feel like a true American? Then get an NBA game on your bucket list. It's everything you see on ESPN but the roaring ambience of 21,000 die-hard fans makes it just that much better. Grab an LA Dog before the game and pretzel at half-time. Foam Fingers are not compulsory but will make for a great 'gram.

4. MT HOLLYWOOD HIKE

Let's be honest, LA has a lot of great things. Two of those great things: a stunning view of the city and the large-portioned deliciousness of American food. Help yourself do some damage control by hiking to the Hollywood sign for that famous a 180-degree view. If anything, it'll help work off last night's In & out Burger plus those Animal Fries. Local's tip: Beware of rattle snakes, it's always best to wear trainers.

5. THE HUDSON

West Hollywood's, The Hudson is perfect for those who want a spot to begin their night. The Hudson provides an alluring ambience with their classy yet welcoming vibe. Dramatically lit fifty-foot trees sprout through the dining room while their bar offers a range of your old favourites as well as a changing microbrew menu. Delectable tapas are a perfect match for the peckish, offering what CBS claims isthe best Mac & Cheese in Los Angeles.
