Here are some things to do in Los Angeles for you and your girlfriends.
1. Have a picture with a star along Beverly Hills, Malibu, or The Wax Museum
You would probably get a chance to see a celebrity shopping at Beverly Hills where people are either rich or famous or both. Or maybe strike a few poses with the luxury cars parked along the streets.
Maybe you’ll spot one somewhere in Malibu, along the gorgeous houses or maybe in one of its awesome beaches. You may even see some when you try some wine at Malibu Wine Safari.
The biggest guarantee to see a celebrity? Head to the Hollywood Wax Museum! Located on Hollywood Boulevard, the wax museum features very life-like figures of the best of the best of Hollywood, including Johnny Depp, Hugh Jackman, Angelina Jolie, Samuel Jackson, and Sandra Bullock, among many others.
2. Have a picture beside a star at Hollywood’s Walk of Fame
You should not miss Hollywood’s Walk of Fame, where the biggest stars of the industry have their names on a $30,000-worth star on the ground. I bet you and your girlfriends wouldn’t pass up a chance to take pictures of your favorites’ stars!
You can also take awesome group pictures at the Hollywood sign located at Mount Lee. You would need to hike uphill to get there but if you have a bus charter you wouldn’t have to.
3. See “real stars” at the Griffith Observatory
If you want to see “real stars” in LA, you can head to Griffith Observatory. Located at Mount Wilson, it has an overlooking view of LA and gives you a chance to appreciate the night sky.
Use their telescopes and look up to the heavens; the staff there would gladly tell you about what you’re seeing, whether you’re looking at the moon, the planets, or some faraway galaxy. Plus, one Saturday every month, they hold a Star Party, too, where everyone is welcome. Who knows who you’ll meet there?
4. Bask in luxury at the Waldorf Astoria
If you and your girlfriends are planning to splurge, you should probably indulge in the luxury at Waldorf Astoria. This modernly designed hotel has 170 uniquely designed rooms. One would be perfect for you and your friends if you wanted to live like a queen for the weekend.
5. Ride the giant Ferris Wheel at the Santa Monica Pier
Bring out the kid in you at the solar-powered Pacific Park at the Santa Monica Pier. Ride the 85-foot Ferris Wheel with your girlfriends. Also find the time to see the lights during the evening.
