Los Angeles, United States Travel Guide Last Updated: Dec 2021

Los Angeles can be done on almost any budget, though of course your experience will reflect what you are able to spend. As long as you don’t plan on multiple theme park visits then you can keep costs under control by taking advantage of doing free things at the beaches or elsewhere. If you do plan on one or more theme park or studio tour visits, you should probably see if the Go Los Angeles Card is a good deal for you. The Go San Diego Card is another one to consider if you are coming as a family, as it covers Legoland and the San Diego Zoo.
