As the entertainment capital of the world, Los Angeles is filled with fun and interesting activities that everyone can enjoy. Whether you prefer relaxing at the beach or shopping at Beverly Hills, there are so many things in LA that have yet to be explored. For those looking an adventure, here’s a quick guide to a jam-packed and fun-filled day in LA!
In the morning
Start the day off with a hike in Griffith Park! Griffith Park is one of the largest urban parks in Los Angeles and in California. The park contains multiple hiking trails for all types of hikers. If you want a challenge, hike all the way up to the Griffith Observatory where you can learn about astronomy while enjoying a panoramic view of Los Angeles.
Once you’re done hiking, head down towards Los Feliz or Silverlake to eat at one of the many brunch places in the area.
In the afternoon
After brunch, drive down towards downtown LA to the Oue Skyspace for a perfect view of the DTLA skyline. Located at the top of the building, Oue Skyspace is an open-air observation deck with a 360-degree view of the city. It even features a unique glass slide, called the Skyslide, where you can see all of DTLA as you slide down. This is the perfect opportunity to get some amazing pictures for Instagram so take advantage of it!

After you enjoy the view, walk around downtown LA to kill some time before dinner. DTLA has a lot of cool places to visit, such as the Last Bookstore, Grand Central Market, and Bradbury Building (where Blade Runner was filmed) so before you know it, it’ll already be evening!
In the evening
Since you’re already in downtown, head to L.A. Live, home to the Staples Center and Regal Cinemas. As the main entertainment area of DTLA, there are a lot of nice restaurants to choose from. We recommend Katsuya or Fleming’s Prime Steakhouse & Wine Bar.
Post-dinner, end the day with a movie at Regal Cinemas! Whether you want to watch a comedy, thriller, or horror movie, Regal Cinemas shows a wide range of movies to fit your preferences. ACEBSA actually offers discounts on single tickets as well as a movie pack, a set complete with two tickets and a concession gift card, both of which you can get right now!
