My 12 Most Important Reasons To Visit LA

LA or Los Angeles is called the City of Angels.
As everyone says I am an Angel too, hence I MUST visit the City of Angels :D

Jokes apart, here are my 12 most important reasons to visit LA-

1. To fulfill a childhood dream & to visit my family & friends & fulfill promise...
I have been dreaming to visit LA ever since my Uncle gifted me a pen that had "I LOVE LA" written on it...
I believe in Dalai Lama's quote- "Once a year, go someplace you've never been before.
Haven't visited LA yet & dreaming to visit LA soon.

My Uncle & Aunt, Cousins & friends stay in LA & have been inviting me to visit them! 
LA has been in my travel wish-list for long. The last time I was in the USA was during the 9/11... & that ruined all my plans... 
I really wish to visit LA & fulfill my promise of meeting my loved ones there.


2. To visit the UCLA -University of California, Los Angeles Campus.
I'd love to visit "the grounds of optimism" that have gifted "12 Nobel Prizes, 12 Rhodes Scholarships, more NCAA titles than any university and more Olympic medals than most nations."
Optimism is in my DNA too & I have to visit UCLA!


3. To visit the Walt Disney Concert Hall.
I love Music & Walt Disney & I can't miss this home of the Los Angeles Philharmonic orchestra and the Los Angeles Master Chorale.

4. To visit the Vincent Thomas Bridge.
It would be great to visit this 1500-foot long suspension bridge crossing the Los Angeles Harbor. I'll click pictures at the first welded suspension bridge in the United States.

5. To visit the Griffith Park.
It will be lovely to spot the butterflies in this large municipal park. 
I would love to see the famous Griffith Observatory.

6. To see this giant rubber duck that is six stories high! 
(I just have a miniature version of a rubber duck in my home!) 
I am excited to read about the Tall Ships Festival Los Angeles 2014.
How wonderful it'll be to see this!

7. To visit Getty Centre.
I would like  to visit this campus of the Getty Museum and other programs of the Getty Trust. 
The Getty Museum is a treasure-house of pre-20th-century European paintings, manuscripts, sculpture, arts and 19th & 20th-century photographs.
I will be delighted to see its architecture, gardens, and the scenic views of Los Angeles such as in the following pic:

8. To visit the LACMA - Los Angeles County Museum Of Art
LACMA is the largest art museum in the western United States. The art-lover in me will be happy to see the rich works of art from ancient to modern times.

9. To visit Hollywood.
I am a HUGE Movies Fan and dream to visit Hollywood- the home of the entertainment industry.

I would love to visit the Hollywood Boulevard & Vine Street for the Hollywood Walk of Fame & the El Capitan Theatre.
A real treat with more than 2,500 five-pointed terrazzo and brass stars embedded in the sidewalks in the ground... The stars dedicatedly bearing the names of the Who's Who of the Entertainment Industry- actors, directors, producers, musicians & groups, fictional characters, and others.

10. To visit the DreamWorks Animation Campus & a tour of their Studios.
I have absolutely loved all their super fun & super cool animation movies that I have had the privilege to watch! 

To estimate how much I wish to visit the DreamWorks Animation Studios, LA-
Do read my Post- I Am A World Explorer!


I would love to see the place where there is so much talent & creativity!

11. To visit the other Sights Of Interest in LA that I am forced to exclude as this is a "12-MOST" list! 
I will take expert suggestions & visit other must-see places of attraction too!


I love Social Media. I believe- Social Media has the power to change the world. 
Attending the Social Media Week at Los Angeles will be a great opportunity for me as I will get to hear and interact with the top Social Media Professionals from around the world.
As a Blogger, Writer, & Social Researcher, I can share the valuable lessons, learnings & experiences.
