Los Angeles is one of the biggest and most famous cities in the world, as well as being one of the most beautiful. Home to iconic locations like Hollywood, Venice Beach, the TCL Chinese Theatre, the Walt Disney theme parks, and so much more, it's a city that draws in millions of visitors from all over the globe each and every year. Many of those visitors spend a lot of their time at the big touristic hotspots like the Hollywood Walk of Fame and the popular family theme parks, but there’s much to LA than these locations.
There’s a natural side to the City of Angels too. Griffith Park is the best example of this. Spread out over more than 4,300 acres of land, Griffith Park is one of the biggest city parks in the entire United States. Commonly known as the 'Central Park' of LA, Griffith Park is a great place for both LA residents and tourists alike to enjoy some fresh air, outstanding views, and unbeatable scenery. Griffith Park is the home of the world-famous Hollywood Sign, while also playing host to various other unique landmarks and interesting attractions like the Bronson caves, the Greek Theatre, Griffith Observatory, and you can enjoy it best with the Los Angeles Hiking Company.
