Flying To Los Angeles With American Airlines

Hit the big time when you take an American Airlines flight to Los Angeles. Walk in the footsteps of your favorite movie stars on Hollywood Boulevard and wriggle your toes in Santa Monica's sandy beaches when you fly to Los Angeles with American Airlines.

Savor your Hollywood moment in the heart of Tinseltown

Comb the courtyard of Grauman's Chinese Theatre to compare your shoe size to those of your favorite movie stars. Skip from star to star along the Hollywood Walk of Fame, starting with Michael Jackson and Robin Williams at Grauman's. You might recognize the Kodak Theatre next door—even if it's not Academy Award season.

Stargaze at the Griffith Observatory

Bring the family through the free astronomy and space exhibits and peer through the giant telescopes to spot our neighboring stars and planets. Or make it a romantic date to watch the sunset from the glamorous Art Deco promenade. Once night falls, the twinkling city lights seem to spread to infinity.

Cruise the Sunset Strip

Rock out to headlining local and national bands at the tiny twin clubs the Whiskey A Go-Go and the Roxy. Check the House of Blues calendar for revival acts and international headliners. At the Laugh Factory, both big-time comedians and newbies perfect their latest jokes.

Pamper yourself in Santa Monica

Plan a late brunch and leisurely stroll along the Third Street Promenade, Santa Monica's pedestrian outdoor shopping mall. Spend the afternoon comfortably ensconced in a spa treatment room before ambling to the palm-lined beach. From your spot in the sand, wave to the laughing daredevils on the Santa Monica Pier rollercoasters as the sun sinks into the Pacific Ocean.

Let loose in Disneyland and California Adventure

Ride with Indiana Jones through a crumbling ancient temple, zoom through space on an indoor rollercoaster and commune with holographic ghosts in the Haunted Mansion. Kids delight in the quaint storybook rides where smoke, mirrors and puppets bring Peter Pan and Snow White to life. The nightly fireworks extravaganza features a real-life Tinkerbell flying over Sleeping Beauty's castle.

More Things to Do in Los Angeles

Go off the beaten path to discover more things to do in Los Angeles with American Airlines. Explore Malibu's endless, beloved beaches, strut down the Venice boardwalk and relax with the locals under the umbrellas at the Farmers' Market. American is with you every step of the way.

Hit Highway 1 as it curves past Malibu's million-dollar mansions

Bring your boogie board to the rolling waves at Zuma or your young kids to tranquil Paradise Cove. You can hike up Point Dume in your flip-flops for a bird's-eye view over the blue Pacific. No matter which beach you choose, you'll spot dolphins and seals playing in the waves.

Lunch in the historic Farmers' Market and walk it off at the Grove

For midday dining, the bustling outdoor Farmer's Market has more than 100 restaurants, shops and food vendors—everything from New Orleans jambalaya to Korean barbeque. Amble through the Grove, the neighboring shopping promenade, and you might stumble upon a TV taping. Make like the Los Angelenos, and pretend it's no big deal.

Ride the tram up to the sprawling Getty Center

Billionaire J. Paul Getty's collection of Renaissance and modern art is housed in the pale limestone brilliance of architect Richard Meier's greatest work. Stroll through Robert Irwin's creative Central Garden when you need a break and look out at the Pacific Ocean.

Join the parade by bike or rollerblade along the Venice boardwalk

The whole family will giggle and gawk at this weird and wonderful beach, which is clean, popular and safe for swimming. Body builders pump iron at an open-air gym while stilt walkers casually pick their way through the crowd. Neon sunglasses and hippie henna tattoos are kitschy souvenirs.

Take to the streets of walkable downtown

From the Mexican curio shops of Olvera Street, the city's oldest, you're 10 minutes from the impossibly curvy Walt Disney Concert Hall and its shining metallic ramparts. Nearby, the Museum of Contemporary Art beckons. Snack on Mexican tacos in the bustling Central Market, and at dinner, queue up at a noodle bar in Little Toyko.
