If you have been following along with our adventures via our social media accounts or on our YouTube channel then you would already know we recently travelled to Los Angeles for 2 weeks. We loved the city so much we have already planned a return trip (stay tuned). For those travelling to LA for the first time we thought we would make your life that little easier and put together a list of 10 things we believe you MUST do when visiting.
If you are big movie buffs like us then you have to take up the chance to visit a real back lot! The Warner Bros. Studio VIP tour was amazing. We saw sets, costumes and props from some of the most famous movies and TV shows to date – plus you get to ride around in a cool buggy limo!
How could we visit Hollywood and not go see the Hollywood sign. It’s like going to New York and not seeing the Statue of Liberty, or going to Paris and not seeing the Eiffel Tower. It just simply has to be done.
If you want to see the famous Hollywood Sign in a more unique way, why not checking it out via horseback.
4. Roller Coaster lover? Then Universal Studios Is For You
Universal Studios is known for its awesome roller coaster and fun attractions. It is so big in California that the theme park has its own city, Universal City! You may even need to set aside 2 days just to see everything.
I know deep down we all want to take a sneak peak into a celebrities life. We are all curious of where they eat, sleep and walk their dogs (even if we don’t all admit it). If you want to check out where the celebrities hide out then why not go on a luxury tour in your own private car. That means you can drive down the streets of Bel Air without sticking out like a sore thumb.
We love Venice Beach! You can stroll down cute streets full of coffee shops and boutiques, or why not walk down Venice beach boardwalk and marvel at the local markets, street performers and artwork as cyclists and rollerbladers zip passed.
Okay, for all those big kids out there you have to leave a day free for Disneyland. California is the first one Walt built and was one of our favourite days during our time in LA.
If you like to learn the history behind each city you visit then you definitely want to learn the stories behind the creation of Hollywood.
Ahh, Beverly Hills. Known for its glitz and glamour, streets lined with high end stores and celebrities living at every corner, you just have to go and see it for yourselves.
Santa Monica Pier is such a vibrant and colourful place, with buskers on every corner, its full of life. We recommend heading down for the afternoon and staying to watch the sunset over the ocean, it is beautiful.

Exploring such a large city like Los Angeles can be intimidating. Where do you start? Luckily, though, there are companies like CityHUNT who develop scavenger hunts that will take you on a unique tour of the city.
CityHUNT may specialize in corporate team-building scavenger hunts, but they also provide entertainment for the whole public. You and a group of friends can tour around the city searching for clues that will take you on a journey you wouldn’t have imagined yourself. Make your way to some of the hottest places in Los Angeles, but through a path, that only CityHUNT would come up with.
