Greater Los Angeles

The City of Los Angeles evokes images of palm trees, movie stars, and beautiful sandy beaches. Combine those elements with all that sunshine the region receives and you have a recipe for family fun. Explore the shores of Redondo Beach, stand in awe of the newly remodeled Dinsoaur Hall of the Natural History Museum in Exposition Park, stroll the Hollywood Walk of Fame, and experience the thrills of Universal Studios. In LA, the fun never stops.
