Weather

The weather in Los Angeles is mostly sun, sun, sun, which is why almost four million people live there. Unless they moved there to make it in the movies? Either way, expect year-round heat. Bear in mind that the Los Angeles area contains microclimates, meaning the daytime temperatures can vary as much as 36 °F (20 °C) between inland areas. The L.A. metropolitan area is mostly dry, but expect summer months to be sizzling!

Nightlife

Want to mingle with the A-listers? For that you’ll need to dress to impress and head to Avalon, Drai’s or Boulevard3 in Hollywood, or glam up even more for Chateau Marmont's Bar Marmont in West Hollywood. Of course, you could find those celebs eating and generally being normal in any bar or restaurant. L.A. has a host of clubs and bars for everyone, but for a family affair head to Universal CityWalk®, next to to Universal Studios Hollywood.

Hollywood history

Did you know that Hollywood was established in 1853 and was actually a thriving agricultural community? These days the farming tools have been replaced by sidewalk stars and neon lights, and has been producing movies and television shows since the early 1900s. You can learn a lot more about it with a Hollywood Explorer Pass. See Madame Tussauds, visit movie locations, walk the Walk of Fame and more!
