When you’re stuck with an extended layover in Los Angeles, consider it the perfect excuse to get out and explore the city. With nearby beaches, shops, and museums, what better way to spend 24 hours in Los Angeles than by hitting the streets and shores?
Los Angeles sits on the coast of Southern California. Because of the seemingly perpetual warm weather and sunshine, it’s always a good day to soak up the SoCal sunshine. Quirky Venice Beach with its eclectic boardwalk scene is just 6 miles north of Los Angeles International, while the nearby Santa Monica Pier dazzles with its theme park rides. Meanwhile, the ritzy shops along Rodeo Drive and the Melrose Avenue boutiques are prime retail therapy spots. To top off your one day in LA, check out the exhibits at the Museum of Contemporary Art or gaze at the stars from the Griffith Observatory.
Don’t let a time crunch prevent you from getting a sneak peek of the city. With hours to spare before your next flight, venture out in the wonderful world of La La Land. Even if you just dip your toes in the Pacific Ocean or catch a glimpse of the Hollywood sign, the City of Angels won’t disappoint.
