A magnificent city bathed by sparkling Pacific waves that provide excellent surfing all year round, Los Angeles is an iconic American destination that needs no introduction. Home to some of the best restaurants and most upmarket art scene to be found in southern California amid a backdrop of elegant architecture, wonderful golden beaches and welcoming weather, the city offers plenty of opportunities to enjoy a memorable getaway as a family. Regardless of whether you prefer to discover sophisticated art exhibitions at LACMA (Los Angeles County Museum of Art), explore amusement parks and studio tours or indulge in some serious shopping, Los Angeles has something for everyone.
Renting holiday accommodation in Los Angeles
Due to its popularity, Los Angeles is a pricey city and your best option is to rent holiday accommodation. A holiday apartment will give you the freedom to plan your visit the way you want it and the luxury of having your own space. Los Angeles’s welcoming local community will be delighted to learn that you are keen to explore their city like a true Angelino and you will have the best excuse to chat with your neighbour who will tell you where to find the most exquisite eateries to enjoy freshly caught Californian fish and seafood, or that place that looks like a hole in the wall but serves the finest tacos in town. A hotel is not such an attractive option when you can enjoy your very own holiday apartment in which you can put your feet up after a long day out and about exploring Los Angeles Museum of Natural History, visiting Universal Studios or discovering Los Angeles’s countless hidden corners.
Where to stay in Los Angeles
Los Angeles is such an attractive city that we understand if you don’t want to share it with other travellers in noisy hotels. Whether you prefer to be woken by the sound of the ocean in Venice Beach or book a luxury holiday rental with spectacular views in the middle of Hollywood, HouseTrip offers a wide selection of self-catering accommodation that is perfect for your family holiday and will give you the opportunity to enjoy all the comfort of having your own home away from home. After a long day exploring Los Angeles’s unmatched restaurants, delightful parks or traditional fairs, there is nothing like revelling in the luxury of putting your feet up in your own lounge with a glass of chilled Californian wine from Napa Valley after enjoying a home-cooked meal with fresh ingredients that you hand-picked at the market.
Los Angeles with the family
The city of Los Angeles and its surrounding area are ideal to enjoy with the kids. Start your day in Olvera Street, home to the city’s historical centre and then head towards Korea Town for a touch of cultural flavour before moving to Hollywood where you can see the Walk of Fame and visit Ripley’s Believe It or Not with the kids, who won’t get enough of its wonderfully unusual exhibitions. If you feel like enjoying some time away from the bustling city, a day trip to neighbouring San Francisco or San Diego, where the children can visit Disneyland and Sea Life might be just the trick. An expensive hotel could never compare to the freedom of enjoying an idyllic break with your loved ones in such an authentic way.
