Los Angeles, the second largest city in the United States, is a favorite destination for tourists, but also hosts many long-term visitors each year. For anyone with an extended stay in Los Angeles or for those just visiting for a few days, there are a huge variety of day tours and weekend trips available. For a day full of fun, explore Disneyland and see your favorite Disney characters—if you’re lucky you’ll be able to catch an evening fireworks show as well! Another favorite is Universal Studios, featuring exciting rides based on movies like Jurassic Park and Terminator 2. If you love animals, you may want to take a tour to the San Diego Zoo, America’s most famous zoo, or visit their Wild Animal Park. You can also see your favorite creatures of the sea at San Diego Sea World, another easy day trip from Los Angeles.
If you’re looking to go further away, spend the weekend in Las Vegas, accessable by guided bus tour or by air package. See world famous casinos like Caesar’s Palace and the Bellagio, or escape the city with a day trip to the Grand Canyon. Another fun weekend can be spent in San Francisco, just a 7 hours drive and an hour flight to the north. Explore popular tourist attractions such as Fisherman’s Wharf, Alcatraz and Lombard Street, and ride the famous cable cars up the city’s steep hills! If you’re looking to explore even further away from LA, book our New York City land package, which includes hotel accommodations in Manhattan and tours of the city and famous landmarks, or fly to Hawaii with our Hawaii Air package for a relaxing beach escape.
