Los Angeles may be known for being the home of thousands of celebrities, but there is more to the bustling Californian metropolis than its famous residents. LA is also home to great surfing beaches and year-round summer temperatures. I loved visiting Santa Monica, stalking the stars, and participating in a Warner Bros. Studio Tour when I was there. If you are in the mood for some celebrity spotting and sunshine, choose Los Angeles as your next travel destination.
DIVE INTO THE DIXIE
Known for being used as a location in many television shows and movies, The Dixie Hollywoodis definitely a stylish stay. It is located on Hollywood Boulevard, which means guests are mere steps from the Walk of Fame and Dolby Theatre. The hotel has an outdoor pool, 24-hour front desk, and multilingual staff. It also welcomes dogs and cats, as long as they weigh under 25 pounds. Your pet might just love Los Angeles as much as you!

The pet-friendly Ace Hotel is all about the extras though, including a rooftop bar with nightly entertainment, a 24-hour fitness centre, juice bar, outdoor pool, and free bicycle rentals. The bikes will come in handy for exploring Downtown L.A, and its main interesting districts.
