"Lights, Camera, Los Angeles!"
With its sunny climate, magnificent Pacific coastline, tranquil deserts and snow-capped mountains, Los Angeles is a cosmopolitan, international city. The ethnic diversity, customs, languages and lifestyles that influence the city’s character span the globe. Guests will experience the vibrance of the city by a twilight visit to some of the most exciting districts filled with all of the majestic glitz and glamour that the city has to offer. On the southern edge of Hollywood, guests will make their first stop at a unique Los Angeles shopping district where the old meets the new. The Grove is an open-air shopping, entertainment and dining center that sits just north and east of LA's charming Farmers Market. The 575,000-square-foot site has a Disneyland ambiance, right down to its main street and the clang-clang trolley that zips visitors from the parking garage, through the heart of the complex and all the way to the Farmers Market – a Los Angeles institution since 1938. You are sure to find what you’re looking for with shops like Banana Republic, Gap and Barnes & Noble not to mention Nordstrom. Each guest will receive a VIP Discount Card redeemable for discounts at selected restaurants and shops. And, if you don’t find it at The Grove, the Farmers Market is only a trolley whisk away where souvenirs and tchotchkies abound – including “I Love LA” tshirts, but take your appetite. With 20 great places to eat of all ethnic diversity, you will find the freshest squeezed lemonade, the creamiest homemade ice cream, and the finest dishes in town. This makes the perfect stop to dine before continuing with the whirlwind tour of Los Angeles! Downtown Hollywood is the next stop; here guests will experience the rich history and nostalgia that this star-studded city has to offer. Everyone relives the past and feels the experiences of the stars as they compare their foot and hand sizes with movie-star’s sidewalk imprints at Grauman’s Chinese Theater. Afterwards, enjoy free time to revisit points of interest, or browse the prestigious shops of Hollywood & Highland Retail & Entertainment Complex. Continuing on the tour, guests will observe Downtown Los Angeles. The City of Angels is a beautiful mix of old and new... gleaming high-rises coexist alongside historic treasures. Guests will catch a glimpse of notable downtown landmarks, such as the Dorothy Chandler Theater, Walt Disney Concert Hall, L.A. City Hall and Cathedral of Our Lady of Angels.
Join the adventure through the streets of Los Angeles, where the city is the star!
