    It's a city of stars, and you can live just like one

    There's a reason Los Angeles holds such an allure. Whether you're hiking up to the Hollywood Sign, fitting your hands into the mold of your fave celeb's, or hanging ten with the locals, you'll find glitz, glamour, and excitement at practically every turn. Dedicate each day to a new neighborhood and never tire of learning the ins and outs of L.A. life. Or, better yet, opt for a luxe Los Angeles vacation rental and try your hand at living like the celebs do. They are, after all, just like us!

    Kick it by the sea or head for the actual Hills

    With so much going on in and around L.A., it can be overwhelming. Opt for a hop on, hop off bus tour, go shopping in Beverly Hills, or take a guided walking tour of West Hollywood. Hike up the trail at Runyon Canyon for expansive city views, or start your morning with a sunrise yoga class on Venice Beach. Whether you book a Los Angeles vacation rental right on the Pacific or in a downtown high-rise, you'll never run out of places to go, or people to see, in SoCal.

    From La La Land to Disneyland and back again

    If celeb-stalking is starting to embarrass the kids, hightail it out to the Los Angeles Zoo, Universal Studios Hollywood, or Disneyland. Grab the quintessential L.A. photo of the Hollywood Sign, or hike up to the Griffith Observatory. Take in an exhibit at the J. Paul Getty Museum, or a performance at the Walt Disney Concert Hall. While California's more popular wine country might be a few hours north, impress the adults of your crew with a peek at the growing industry in SoCal with a tour of some of Los Angeles's newest wineries.

    It's always sunny in California... no, but really

    Los Angeles boasts 300 days of sunshine per year, with temps averaging in the low-80s for the majority. The few cold, gray days are likely to arrive in January and February, when it can be a little wet—though you won't hear most Angelenos complain about the respite from the heat. June is known to be occasionally a bit more overcast, too, but July and August are likely to be hot, dry, and busy. September and October, on the other hand, offer the dream trip trifecta: warm days, crisp nights, and smaller crowds.

    Situated off the Pacific Coast Highway, driving into Los Angeles is an experience in itself -- and not just because of the world-famous traffic. The city's coast is home to some of the most stunning beaches in Southern California, and the sea-level slowly rises into hills and eventually mountains as you move inland. The San Gabriel Mountains sit to the north of LA, and the city is bordered by the Angeles National Forest and Topanga State Park. Opt for a Los Angeles vacation rental on the water or in the hills, and end each day with a cinematic sunset.
