Visiting Los Angeles Metro Area

Welcome to Los Angles and 2012. Foodies, this is your season - 2012 dineLA Restaurant Week is here. Here’s your chance to try those new restaurants on your list. Los Angeles restaurants like Dal Rae, Picca and Vermont Kitchen are among over 300 participating restaurants. Travel throughout Los Angeles County and enjoy locations like Baleen Los Angeles overlooking Redondo Beach’s Portofino Marina, Gaetano’s Restaurant on Pacific Coast Highway in Torrance, or classic California cuisine at Jer-Ne Restaurant + Bar in Marina del Rey. Hollywood’s Loteria! Grill for Mexican fare, GO Burger or Grub are near attractions like the Sunset Strip, Grauman’s Chinese Theatre and the Hollywood Walk of Fame.

There’s no better place to hangout than L.A. Live. Surrounding the STAPLES Center and Nokia Theater, L.A. Live is filled with entertainment, nightclubs and restaurant options. Now is the time to take in a Los Angeles Clippers or LA Lakers game at the STAPLES Center – arrive early, stay late and enjoy the fun. Start at the intersection of Olympic Boulevard and Figueroa Street and let loose from there. Hockey fans don’t miss the LA Kings on the ice also at the STAPLES Center. After hosting the 2012 People’s Choice Awards, the Nokia Theatre brings in Martina McBride, Lenny Kravitz and Steve Harvey among the many concerts and performances.

Don’t miss taking the kids to Universal Studios Hollywood for the Studio Tour tram ride to Skull Island, and King Kong 360 3-D. Don’t tell ‘em, but you’ll end up in the middle of a 3-D Battle between King Kong and a giant T-Rex. Check out backlot sets and Universals’ Special Effects stage and see behind the scenes of your favorite TV shows and movies.

Los Angeles has a variety of trails to get you outside in the beautiful California climate - stretch those legs and take a walk. Check out fantastic views of the Hollywood sign along the Runyon Canyon Loop to summit at Cloud’s Rest. This is an off leash area for dogs, so don’t leave your best friend behind. The West Trail Loop at Griffith Observatory is another great trail for views of the LA Basin. Will Rogers State Park in Santa Monica is easy to reach off Sunset Boulevard. Be sure to take the trail to Inspiration Point for the most spectacular views of the Pacific Ocean and Santa Monica Mountains.

The California Science Center is a must-visit destination for families visiting Southern California. Located south of downtown Los Angeles in historic Exposition Park conveniently off the Harbor Freeway. Extended through March 11, the Weingart Gallery hosts 1001 Inventions. The exhibit showcases the scientific contributions of the Golden Age of Muslim Civilization. Science in Toyland is another wonderful interactive exhibit featuring the Kids Construction co, Tournament of Tops and the Domino Challenge. The California Science Center offers interesting and innovative exhibits for all ages.
