Why It's Worth It

Whether you go for Hollywood or the beaches, L.A. has striking views, distinct neighborhoods, and unexpected pockets of charm to impress even the most seasoned traveler. Add street art, new gallery districts, hipster enclaves, great food, and mountains with waterfalls (with or without the water), and there’s enough to keep you exploring for days or weeks. If you want to do the cheesy tourist things or just chill at the beaches, well, this is the city for that as well. —Soo Youn
