Jul 03, 2007
If you are spending 2 weeks in Los Angeles, here are the top five things that you absolutely must do.
1. Disneyland: "happiest place on earth" the theme park that is located at 1313 South Harbor Blvd. in Anaheim, California, USA. It opened on July 17, 1955. The park is owned and operated by The Walt Disney Company.
The park consists of various areas with separate themes:
Main Street USA, an early 20th century Midwest town
Adventureland, featuring jungle adventures
Frontier Land, illustrating western frontier
Fantasyland, bringing to life fantasy
Tomorrowland, looking into the future.
Three additional areas were added to these original park areas later: New Orleans Square, Mickey's Toontown, and Critter Country. An elevated berm supports a three-foot (narrow) gauge railroad which circumnavigates the park. Disneyland features rides and attractions designed to appeal to all ages.
2) Universal Studios Hollywood: theme park that spawned off of Universal Studios. Its production studios are located at 100 Universal City Plaza Drive in Universal City, California, an unincorporated area of Los Angeles County between Los Angeles and Burbank.
3) Knott's Berry Farm: Knott's Berry Farm is divided into six distinct themed areas: Camp Snoopy, Ghost Town, Indian Trails, Fiesta Village, The Boardwalk, and Wild Water Wilderness. In addition, a small shopping village called California Marketplace sits outside the admission gate, and includes the famous Knott's Chicken Dinner Restaurant and a number of gift shops.
4) Venice Beach: Venice Beach is understood to include the beach, the promenade that runs parallel to the beach ("Ocean Front Walk" or just "the boardwalk"), Muscle Beach, the tennis courts, Skate Dancing plaza, the numerous beach volleyball courts, the bike trail and the businesses and residences that have their addresses on Ocean Front Walk. It is a great magnet for tourists, even from other parts of Los Angeles, and is well-known for its eclectic, counter-culture atmosphere.
5) Six Flags Magic Mountain: is the world's largest chain of amusement parks and theme parks and is headquartered in New York City. There are 20 amusement and water parks run by Six Flags. The first Six Flags amusement park, Six Flags Over Texas, was built halfway between the cities of Fort Worth and Dallas in Arlington (Tarrant County), Texas, United States.
