  • That oil Tycoon off the Getty's private museum, free admission hours to kill (short work) visited. Contact tram admission and parking is free, but parking was $ 15. Offers views overlooking Los Angeles City clean and beautiful, is the charm. It does not look of a recent wildfire, burning the Getty from citizens? See also was concerned with. I think, such as Van Gogh and Cezanne painting collection is nice and worth seeing pictures and statues. Took half a day, but take a look at try.

Where to stay in Los Angeles

Los Angeles may be synonymous with luxury, but its accommodations include not only some of the most opulent and expensive hotels in the world, but also budget-priced hostels and inexpensive inns. In Los Angeles, a car opens up a world of lodging options, allowing you to stay outside the city proper and still have easy access to most major tourist attractions. If you don't mind splurging, consider Hollywood or Beverly Hills. To save money, stay near the airport or in the eastern suburbs of the city.
