It’s easy to get a feel for one of the most populated cities in the world right from our doorstep. Hike to local attractions like the famed Hollywood Sign and Griffith Observatory, or sweat it out in an outdoor boot camp or yoga class at nearby Pan Pacific Park (we’ll recommend tons of gyms and studios if you prefer sweating indoors). Then, refuel next door at the original Farmer’s Market in L.A. It wouldn’t be L.A. without the celebrity sightings, so keep your eyes peeled – the TV show Extra is filmed right in the mall.
