Live like a star in the City of Stars

It's no wonder that Los Angeles is so alluring. Whether you're hiking to the iconic Hollywood Sign, comparing hand sizes with the moulds of your favourite celebrities or hanging ten at the local surf spot, you'll find a city with endless glitz, glamour and excitement. Pick a new neighbourhood to explore each day, and you'll never tire of learning the ins and outs of LA life. Scan plush Los Angeles vacation rentals, and try your hand at living like Hollywood stars do. You might just find that they really ARE just like us.

Things to do

Where you can easily swap La La Land for Disneyland

If you're starting to embarrass the kids with all your celebrity-stalking, treat them to a fun-filled day at the Los Angeles Zoo, Universal Studios Hollywood or Disneyland. No trip is complete without a photo of the Hollywood Sign, paired with a hike to the Griffith Observatory. The J. Paul Getty Museum is well worth a visit, as is a performance at the Walt Disney Concert Hall. Napa may be California's more popular wine country, but the adults in your crew might appreciate a visit to some of Los Angeles's newest wineries.

Activities

Lounge by the sea, or head for the literal Hills

LA can be overwhelming, as there are endless options for things to see and do. Take a hop-on, hop-off bus tour around celebrity hotspots, shop along Rodeo Drive in Beverly Hills or explore West Hollywood on foot with a guided walking tour. Runyon Canyon offers pleasant hiking trails with expansive city views, while Venice Beach is perfect for a sunrise yoga class. Compare the Los Angeles vacation rentals overlooking the Pacific with the options in Downtown, and you'll quickly realise this: you'll never run out of places to go or people to see in SoCal.

Weather

Pack the SPF, because the forecast ALWAYS calls for sun

If ever there was a place with perfect weather, LA is it. Thanks to 300 days of sunshine a year and perfect warm temperatures most of the year, you're hard-pressed to find a bad time to visit. January and February can be a little wet and chilly, though you won't hear Angelenos complaining. June is known for the occasional overcast day, too, but come July and August, expect it to be hot, dry and busy. September and October, on the other hand, offer the dream scenario – pleasant days, cool nights and minimal crowds.

Natural highlights

Better ask Siri to assemble your road trip playlist ASAP

Thanks to its location off the Pacific Coast Highway, driving into LA is truly bucket list material. Along the coast, you'll spot some of SoCal's most stunning beaches. As you head towards Downtown, you'll find the sea level slowly rising into hills, before eventually becoming proper mountains farther inland. To the north of LA, you'll find the San Gabriel Mountains, and the city is also bordered by the Angeles National Forest and Topanga State Park. Consider Los Angeles vacation rentals on the water or in the hills. Either way, you'll end each day with a cinematic sunset.
