Los Angeles

Los Angeles has always been a crucible for new ideas in the arts, design and lifestyle, and with one third of California’s population living in the metropolitan area’s 4,850 square miles (and speaking 220 languages, from Khmer to Russian), this sprawling, glamorous, change-obsessed place is something to behold.

    3 Days: Essential Los Angeles

    Indagare experts can pair you with the perfect L.A. hotels and dining options to best experience the food scene. Here is just one example of what our destination specialists can create for you.

    • Day 1: Downtown Sites

      In the morning, those looking for cultural immersion will love the modern art collections at the Los Angeles County Museum of Art and the UCLA Armand Hammer Museum in Westwood. Later, head to Hollywood. It’s certainly touristy, but it’s still fun to check out the famous Chinese Mann theater and the Avenue of the Stars. Be sure to visit the gorgeous Walt Disney Concert Hall before enjoying dinner at a chic L.A. establishment.

      Day 2: Oceanfront Retreat

      Start your day with a visit to the Getty Center, a stunning hilltop complex featuring a sublime art collection, where Indagare can arrange a guided tour with an art curator. Then, spend a leisurely afternoon in Santa Monica, strolling along the iconic pier and sipping cocktails at a waterfront hot spot. Sun-worshipers looking to relax should head to the beaches in Malibu.

      Day 3: Shopping and Tours

      For a taste of Beverly Hills, walk down Rodeo Drive or other shopping streets like West Third and Melrose. Then, visit the Brentwood Country Mart, home to a curated selection of boutiques. In the afternoon, families with children can visit an actual film set on a backlot tour of Universal Studios or Warner Brothers. For active travelers, Indagare can arrange a guided hike through iconic destinations such as the Hollywood Hills, Griffith Park and Temescal Canyon.

Indagare's Amelia Osborne Scott
“Keeping up with the latest trends is a feat in Los Angeles, where tans can always get more bronzed, diet fads float in and out and shopping and dining are not just luxuries, but rather part of each day. L.A. is always two steps ahead, and notable new restaurants and stores are constantly enticing visitors to forgo the traditional.”

“We go to the Santa Monica Pier all the time. We get a day pass and the boys ride bumper cars and scary rides, the big Ferris wheel and the merry-go-round. Then we usually go to the restaurant at Fred Segal in Santa Monica. We also love seeing movies at the historic old El Capitan Theatre. And we’re Urth Caffé fanatics. We love the waffles, tamales and soups.”
