It's taken me nearly 4 years to hit everything on this list, so I KNOW this Los Angeles travel guide will keep you busy whether you travel to Los Angeles long term or you're in LA for the weekend!

Some of these things to do in LA are free (like hitting up the beach) and some will cost you (like surfing in Santa Monica), but either way you'll have the time of your life soaking up the sun and getting into the Cali vibe!
