Why fly to Los Angeles?
Best known for celebrities and glamour, Los Angeles wavers between it's star quality Hollywood status, natural mountain beauty and bohemian vibe. From absolutely perfect weather all year round to beach getaways minutes from the metropolitan city center L.A., its shorter and cooler name, is a city alive 365 days of the year. The city is divided into very distinct regions that almost deserve a border.
If you want summer anytime of the year head to the coast, from Malibu where the beaches stretch for miles to San Pedro where you can relax with a cocktail and wave the cruise ships in. Quaint Marina Del Ray boasts a massive man-made harbour for funnily enough small boats and San Pedro is a funky beach artisan delight.
Fly in to a world of inspirational luxury as you step foot into Beverly Hills. Visit famed Rodeo Drive for a peruse of the world's top design houses and lunch in exclusive restaurants like Scarpetta and Spago. Treat yourself to a stay at some of the world's most luxurious hotels like the Beverly Wiltshire. Essentially, fly into a world of inspirational luxury.
Of course, Hollywood has its pull and rightly so. You can step into many of the movies and shows you've seen with a short trip to the bright light of Hollywood. For those wanting to get into the thick of the action studio tours and audience seating are a must. Beyond that, take a tour of famous homes and iconic movie places for a taste of fantasy meets reality.
For true health foodies, Los Angeles is a trinket trunk of possibilities. If you've never heard of Jidori chicken it's probably because you haven't been to Los Angeles. These chickens live a good life, grain-fed and free, and they arrive into kitchens and on your plate without ever being frozen, which results in a full flavor that is prized by Los Angeles chefs and a reason to fly into Los Angeles just for a taste - from a foodie perspective of course.

When to fly to Los Angeles
Peak Season Although Los Angeles is warm all year round, summer is still peak season in the city, and as a result flight fares are at their most expensive. Due to city's massive entertainment industry, awards season, when thousands of industry professionals flock to the area, is also an extremely busy time and L.A. bookings are at an all time high. Off Season Although Los Angeles really doesn't have an off season, for visitors the winter months offer a great chance to snap up flight discounts following the December holiday rush. The bonus of a winter holiday in Los Angeles is that the weather is pretty much the same as in the summer but crowds are significantly reduced, which allows for a warm beach vacation in a top-class city at a purse-friendly price.
