What you'll do

Step behind the scenes of the glitzy and glamorous City of Angels to discover hidden gems, like a nearby well-hidden abandoned zoo for a glimpse of spooky graffiti, or stroll along the Hollywood Lake Reservoir path, where the city's mayor also likes to hang. LA is a haven for the geeky and cool, as you'll see at a quirky gallery, or spoil the bookworm in you to a spot seemingly built by fairies. A pathway leading to artistic suburbia is decorated with Gothic features, aptly named Shakespeare Bridge, then follow your host to a set of secret staircases leading to sprawling city views. Next, bask in the beauty of a mural dedicated to interracial harmony, before appreciating all things silver screen at a vintage movie hall; you're in La La Land, after all.

Where you’ll go

Discover an LA out of the tourist spotlight, along quirky paths leading to the weird but cool, like an abandoned zoo in the heart of Griffiths Park that you'll only find with your local, or the lake-view paths of a reservoir nestled between the Santa Monica Mountains. Away from the tourists on Sunset Boulevard is geeky gallery iam8bit, then dart to The Last Bookstore, a Narnia-like playground for the imagination, where books flutter from every nook. Escape to artist haven Franklin Hills via the storybook-like Shakespeare Bridge, towards stairs that hold the key to postcard-worthy views. China isn't the only one with a Great Wall, with LA's dunked in inspiring street art, then it's off to a vintage Spanish-like movie hall, framed by those iconic palm trees.
