Rodeo Drive - Los Angeles, CA

The famous Rodeo Drive sits at the center of the ‘Golden Triangle’ – Santa Monica Boulevard to the north, Wilshire Boulevard to the south and Canon Drive to the east. This is where the big people buy big names for big money. A familiar backdrop in lots of movies, it is certainly worth a look – even if you can’t afford anything. Some of the streets off Rodeo Drive are slightly more affordable. West Third Street (between Fairfax and Robertson Boulevards) is a fun shopping street and one of the most popular in the city, with great boutiques, some gorgeous antique shops and trendy cafés.

Best Time To Visit
Los Angeles

The warm and sunny weather in Southern California makes Los Angeles an enjoyable city practically all year round, but in general, the best time to visit L.A. would be from March to May, when there are fewer tourists and the temperatures are more pleasant. Summer can be unbearably hot. It also brings more tourists and that's when the smog levels and room rates peak. However, during this period, L.A. is booming with music festivals, free summer concerts, and outdoor movie screenings. The rain falls mostly during the winter. In January, Pasadena’s historic Rose Parade takes place and most awards shows such as the Academy Awards, the Golden Globes and the Grammys.
