Group Travel Ideas: 5 Things to Do if Strapped for Time in LA

5 Things to Do in LASo your group has traveled to Los Angeles. Your event will take up a good amount of your time, but what to do with your off time? You are, after all, in our nation's second-largest city. There has to be a million different attractions for your group to visit. But which ones?

Bunker Hill: Its high rise buildings make make this part of town very visible, and synonymous with downtown LA. Take a stroll through this part of town and take in a little bit of LA's history, and cinematic history as well. Bunker Hill was used as a location for Kiss Me Deadly, Criss Cross, Angel's Flight, and Oscar Award winning L.A. Confidential. While there, check out the Walt Disney Concert Hall, the Cathedral of Our Lady of the Angels, and the Museum of Contemporary Art.

El Pueblo de Los Angeles Historical Monument:
Somewhere on the grounds of this historical monument, on orders from the King of Spain, Los Angeles was founded by a small group of settlers. Twenty-seven historic buildings were restored in 1953, 11 of which are open to the public, with the remainder serving as museums.

Little Tokyo: Founded in the beginning of the 20th century, Little Tokyo is an ethnic Japanese American district in downtown Los Angeles and one of only three official Japantowns in the United States. While there, check out The Japanese American Cultural & Community Center, and the Japanese American National Museum. The extension of the Museum of Contemporary Art is also in Little Tokyo. If you happen to be there in August, check out the Nisei Week festival. It features a large parade, a pageant, athletic events, exhibits of Japanese art and culture, a taiko drum festival, the Japanese Festival Street Faire, a car show, and other events.

The Griffith Observatory:
If the evening is clear, why not star-gaze? From 7-10 p.m. the telescope of the observatory gives a unique view of the star-lit sky. In the planetarium a projector shows natural manifestations such as eclipses of the sun and moon, the Northern Lights and star cycles. Free public star parties are held monthly from 2:00 p.m. to 10 p.m. They are a chance for your group to look at the sun, moon, visible planets, and other objects, to try out a variety of telescopes, and to talk to knowledgeable amateur astronomers about the sky and their equipment.

Rodeo Drive: So maybe your group members don't actually have the money to purchase anything here, but you can always window shop, right? Rodeo Drive in Beverly Hills is a shopping district famous for designer label and high fashion. Take a stroll through the three-block long stretch of boutiques and shops and watch out for paparazzi as you pretend you are a member of the jet set. Who knows, maybe you'll be able to afford a book mark or something.

This article, of course, barely scratches the surface of the booming metropolis of Los Angeles. Hopefully, with the money your group saved by using GroupTravel.com, you'll have time to get out and see some of the city.
