Los Angeles, California

Next to New York, Los Angeles is the shopping mecca in the U.S.,
presenting Rodeo Drive's opulent retail brands. Essential Hollywood Bowl, La Brea Tar Pits, Paramount Film Studios, and Grauman's Chinese Theatre sidewalk celebrity handprints stops add colorful background.

The Sunset Strip nightclubs and Hollywood sign are epic, but the luxuries offered by

Beverly Hills, Bel Air, and Brentwood are impressive. Don't miss a tour of the beach communities of Malibu, Venice, and Santa Monica, or a trip up the Pacific Coast Highway and its vineyards.
