Your day-by-day itinerary
Arrival in Los Angeles
Today you’ll be heading into one of America’s most iconic cities, Los Angeles. L.A. stretches out along the coast, dotted with soft sandy beaches and palm trees swaying in the warm breeze. Your hotel is in Marina del Rey, a picturesque port with views across the water, located a stone’s throw to Venice Beach. Once you’re settled into your hotel, talk a stroll along the boardwalk to soak up the unique atmosphere in this seaside community filled with music, performers, restaurants and shops.
Cycling to Venice Beach & Santa Monica
Today you’ll head to Venice Beach and pick up the rental bikes that we’ve arranged for you. We’ve found that this is the most relaxed way to explore Venice Beach and Santa Monica when travelling with your family. It’s a good way to avoid the LA crowds, and you can take it as easy as you like. Stop en route for ice cream, visit Santa Monica pier and have a go on some of the rides, and don’t forget to check out Venice and Muscle beach.
The rest of your time in Los Angeles is free for you and your family to explore as you wish and there is no shortage of things to see and do!
A stroll along the Hollywood Walk of Fame is an iconic pastime for any visitor or if you’re looking for some adventure, a hike along one of California’s many trails will certainly blow the cobwebs away.
For history-lovers, there are plenty of options in Los Angeles, from the Natural History Museum to the La Brea Tar Pits and a visit to the California Science Center provides hours of fun with interactive exhibits and activities for all ages. Of course, L.A. is also home to miles of pristine beaches so if relaxing is what you need then a beach day is always a big hit!
Departure from Los Angeles
This is most likely your last stop on your USA family adventure so pack your bags and wave goodbye before you head to the airport to drop off your rental car. From here you can make your way to the terminal for your international flight home.
If three nights just isn’t enough to explore this sprawling city, just let your Travel Specialist know to extend your stay here.
