Los Angeles, often well-known by its initials L.A., is the second-largest city in the United States and the most populous city in the U.S. state of California. There are so many things to see as the city is vast. But ultimately that’s the great thing about this city. The finest periods to visit Los Angeles are from March to May or from September to November because during these times the atmosphere is more breathable and the crowds are less which allows walking around and visiting outdoor much more comfortable. If you’re looking for a winter tour in January and February, just make sure to pack an umbrella. Because you’re obviously going to encounter some rainfall during these times. Must-see tourist spots in Los Angeles are listed below:
1. Venice Beach: Get Energetic on West-side

Not unexpectedly, Venice Beach is busiest in summer. To take pleasure in the crowded hustle-bustle, get there mid-morning or later on a weekend. Summer weekday ordinary afternoons can also be enjoyable. After sunset, the beachfront goes to sleep.

On the fireworks show, Disneyland spends about $41,000 per night. If the park is programmed to close at 10 pm or later, the show is generally offered at 8:45 pm. A key consideration is weather/winds which can force the postponement of the show. The park is decorated for the holidays from early November until the commencement of January.
