The IT edit of handy hints to help your Los Angeles adventure be the best it can be.
- All year round is perfect for visiting Los Angeles given its weather, although February is probably the wettest month and December the coldest.
- Los Angeles is quite spread out so, if you are looking to tick off a lot of suburbs in the one visit, you might want to consider hiring a car.
Most hotels have garaging for a price and the roads are not as scary as you might have heard.
- Hollywood Boulevard and the Sunset Strip are the epicentre of Hollywood, both flashy and trashy, so keep your wits about you when here.
- There are still neighbourhoods and suburbs in Los Angeles that are, if not entirely no-go areas, best left to the locals.
Make sure you have a good map on you and do some research before you arrive.
