Plan a vacation full of sunshine, ocean, and Hollywood fun this Los Angeles Spring Break 2018. L.A. is filled with tons of great attractions you, your friends and your family will love. Here are some fun tips and locations that you might want to go and take a look at!

See L.A from above

If you’re looking for some more adventure on your spring break, then look no further than OUE Skyspace LA. Located near the top of the famed US Bank Tower, this amazing open-air observation deck provides lines of sight for miles on a clear day.

You’ll get 360-degree views of the city, from the San Gabriel Mountains to Catalina Island to Dodger Stadium.

It’s a perfect place for photos! Plus, the truly adventurous travelers will want to check out the Skyline, an all-glass tube that allows guests to slide down the exterior of the tower to the story below

Go Whale Watching

Block off a couple of hours for a thrilling whale watch! Depart from Long Beach or San Pedro and spend the remainder of the day venturing through the Southern California waters in search of whales and other marine life. It’s certainly worth your time and effort to get the chance to see these magnificent creatures up close and closer.

Similarly, if you want to add a bit more adrenaline into watching marine life, consider finding companies that will allow you to get into a cage underwater and see these sea creatures up close and personal.

And hey, it doesn’t necessarily even have to be whale watching, you could in fact if you so chose to watch some Sharks and swim alongside them. Just make sure you do your research on what company or ship your sailing with!

Explore Griffith Park

It’s well over 4,000 acres of urban parkland, featuring miles upon miles of trails (perfect for biking or even just a relaxing stroll with the kids), the free Griffith Park Observatory, and the famous Hollywood sign.

Spend some time at the Los Angeles Zoo and the lovely Botanical Gardens. This small but diverse combo features plants and animals from around the world, perfect for some low key browsing.

Right across the parking lot is the fun Autry Museum of the American West, which showcases some wonderful works of art, pottery, and even antique firearms. It’s a nice option for art lovers or history fans.

For the golf lovers among you, there’s also a popular course just south of the zoo that attracts golfers from all over the area.

Roam around Santa Monica

If the weather cooperates, it’s a good time to get a little bit of surf and sun into your spring break trip with a venture to Santa Monica State Beach.

You can relax on the sand, go for a quick swim (if you’re brave enough to handle cold water), or stroll or bike along the waterfront paths.

Looking for something more thrilling and more classically vacation-esque? Harken to your inner child (or appease the actual kids) with a visit to Pacific Park. It’s an old-school amusement park with an unbeatable waterfront location that offers classic rides, games, and treats.

If you haven’t already, check out the Hollywood Museum

You could also opt to explore the history behind the silver screen with a visit to the comprehensive and fascinating Hollywood Museum, filled with amazing props and artifacts from movie and T.V. history.

You’ll find real items that played an iconic role in Hollywood culture, like Cary Grant’s Rolls-Royce “Roller” and more. There are galleries of photographs, restored makeup and dressing rooms, and tributes to major stars and their signature props like Judy Garland’s Ruby Slippers from The Wizard of Oz.

It’s not just for fans of old Hollywood, either! You’ll find props, sets, and objects from more recent films like Jaws and Silence of the Lambs
