If visiting the City of Angles isn’t on your bucket list we suggest you add it now. From the Hollywood walk of fame, perfect for the star struck, to shopping on Rodeo Drive and Sunset Boulevard, ideal for those who want a taste of the five-star side of Los Angeles, L.A. has something for all. Soak up the California sun at Venice Beach, ride coasters at the Santa Monica Pier, or climb Runyon Canyon for incredible views high above the city. There’s plenty of things to do in L.A., and with our money-saving California vacation packages, Vacations by Marriott is here to take you on the vacation of a lifetime.
From 1923-1949, the iconic Hollywood sign actually said “Hollywoodland”.
If Los Angeles was a state, its population size would make it the fifth largest state in the country.
Los Angeles remains one of the most diverse cities in the U.S. with the city being home to people from more than 140 different countries speaking 224 languages.
Los Angeles, or most commonly referred to as LA, originally had a much longer name, with the initial name of the city being El Pueblo de Nuestra Señora la Reina de los Ángeles sobre El Río Porciúncula.
Los Angeles is blessed with some of the world’s most consistently pleasant weather. Most days of the year the temperature will rise above 70 degrees Fahrenheit, but uncomfortably hot days are rare. And the sea breeze that picks up in the early afternoon tends to keep things feeling fresh. Evenings tend to be equally enjoyable, with all but about ten nights a year hitting low temperatures between 40 and 70 degrees Fahrenheit. So there’s never really a bad time to visit, and measureable rainfall is generally not a concern from the beginning of May through the end of September.
