Here on About Los Angeles Travel, there is a wealth of information on what to do in LA, whether you are in the city for a day, a week or longer. There are so many things to do - literally hundreds of possibilities - that most locals haven't even come close to doing them all, so you'll have to pick and choose those attractions and activities that are the highest priority for you. When you see some of the lesser-known options, you may find that the most visited attractions are less of a priority for you.

If you're short on time and only interested in the popular highlights, you can jump straight to the list of Top Los Angeles Attractions. Check out the Top FREE Things to Do in LA if you're on a budget, or you can dig deeper here and discover some unique opportunities to craft an itinerary for your specific interests.

When planning a trip to Los Angeles, it helps to decide what you want to do before deciding where you want to stay, so this should really be the starting point of your trip planning. This guide is organized in easy to navigate categories by type of activity, by theme and by location, as well as annual festivals and events. Some attractions or activities may appear in more than one category.

Each category links off to additional resources to explore in depth so you don't get bogged down with too much information on one page, and so I can show you more pictures of all the cool LA attractions. I recommend linking out to a new window or tab and keeping this article open as you navigate through so you don't lose your place as you go exploring.

Here's an INDEX of the categories of different kinds of things you'll find here in the MEGA Guide to What to Do in LA:
