7 Unmissable Things To Do In Los Angeles

Spending some time in L.A? Whether you’re into the outdoors, culture, food or just living a #glam life, this is one city where you’ll find something new to do with every visit.

Some of the best things to do in Los Angeles include historical food markets and famous hikes – here’s our top seven picks.

1. Experience infinity at The Broad

This free contemporary art museum has two popular exhibits of Yayoi Kusama’s immersive works. You can’t visit L.A and not check out The Infinity Mirrored Room – ‘The Souls of Millions of Light Years Away’.

It’s an immersive mirror-lined room that you enter for 45 seconds, with flashing LED lights. The door closes behind you so you can get ‘gramming instantly.

2. Hike Runyon Canyon

For a different view of Hollywood, head to Runyon Canyon Park, one of the most popular hiking areas in L.A. Just two blocks from bustling Hollywood Boulevard, Runyon Canyon is well-known for its frequent celebrity sightings and a 90-acre off-leash dog park.

Celebs and cute dogs? Heaven.

3. Catch a game at Dodger Stadium

For baseball fans, it doesn’t get any better than catching a game at Dodger Stadium, one of the great cathedrals of major league baseball and one of L.A.’s most popular Instagram locations. 

Plus, you can drink giant beers and eat giant hotdogs.

4. Watch the sunset from Spire 73

This new bar on the 73rd floor of the InterContinental Hotel Los Angeles Downtown is the tallest open-air bar in the Western Hemisphere. The pretty rooftop terrace boasts 360-degree city views and a delicious drinks menu to boot.

Order a cocktail and some Tableside S’mores, and watch the sun as it sets over L.A. It’s a must-do summer experience. Note that there’s a $10 entrance fee for non-hotel guests that rises to $20 on Friday and Saturday after 8pm.

Grand Central Market (GCM) has been a Downtown L.A. staple since 1917 and now has some of the most incredible food and produce in the city. As well as GCM institutions like China Café, Roast To Go, Sarita’s Pupuseria, and Tacos Tumbras A Tomas, there’s always new and exciting food vendors to discover.

Eggslut does legendary breakfast sandwiches and do keep an eye out for the market’s weekly events, which include Oyster Happy Hours.
