10 Things to Know Before Going to L.A.

 

Do you consider it overwhelming to travel to Los Angeles? This is the town packed with celebrities, with brilliant weather and plastic perfection at every pace. L.A. is simply a different world. Follow the tips below while in L.A., and you’ll end up looking like a local.

 

  1. Celebs don’t hang out in Hollywood

You should know that famous people don’t usually spend their time in Hollywood; they just film there. Instead, you are more likely to find them in Beverly Hills, Studio City, Malibu or Santa Monica. Here you can see them living their normal lives, going to a meeting, to the gym, shopping or enjoying a cup of coffee.

 

  1. L.A. is really, really spread out

You can't visit Los Angeles on the run. You must stay a few days at least and the best option is to find accommodations in centrally located West Hollywood. Choose hotels like the Sofitel and The London, situated strategically between the beach and downtown. The concierge will help you get usually impossible reservations at the most prestigious establishments in town.

 

  1. L.A. has its own style

It seems an effortless style, but L.A. people spend a lot to look that way. They change in a flash from T-shirts, jeans and form-fitting yoga gears to high heels and official attire. If you want a fashion fix, you should go to Fred Segal in West Hollywood or Santa Monica and buy cool, casual L.A. typical clothes.

 

  1. L.A.’s weather is always nice

Go to the Griffith Observatory to admire the beautiful L.A. climate. Every day, you will enjoy the warm and sunny weather, but at night it gets quite chilly. So, layering is the solution in L.A.; take along with you a shawl, a sweater or lightweight jacket in case you will stay outdoor too much.

Weather warning: “June gloom” represents the depressing greyness of cloudy days at the beach the whole month of June.

 

  1. L.A. has amazing food

The favorite dishes in other cities are mac and cheese, smothered eggplant parm and gooey hamburgers. But in L.A., you will find that the menu is quite different, with light and healthy meals; you can have gluten-free, dairy-free, vegetarian, vegan, organic or raw options. Juice bars and food trucks are the perfect choices for low-priced meals.

 

  1. If you spot a celebrity

The unspoken politeness code states the following: when you spot a celebrity you must be polite, don’t point or take pictures with your phone. It's a known fact that they are always shorter and thinner than at TV.

The perfect places to meet a celebrity are the Sunset Plaza, Robertson Boulevard, and The Chateau Marmont.

 

  1. Think no one walks in L.A?

You are wrong assuming that. People use to frequently go hiking in Runyon Canyon, (which offers valet parking) or“doing the stairs” in Santa Monica. But yes, the majority will drive or will be driven even three blocks to a restaurant.

 

  1. Have it your way in L.A.

Waiters in L.A. are accustomed to requests such as "I want it with no oil, on the side, only Paleo, no carbs". So, don't be afraid to order exactly what you want and how you want it.

 

  1. L.A. is a company tow

Everybody here seems to work in the industry of entertainment or have something to do with it. It's highly possible that your salesperson/waitress/valet parker is an aspiring screenwriter, model, musician or actor.

 

  1. Getting around

L.A. traffic is known to be chaotic. Everybody's favorite reply is "it takes about a half an hour” to get pretty much to any destination, but you shouldn't rely on that. Always assign some extra time. The natives have different apps to make navigation through town easier.
