Houston to Los Angeles Travel Guide

People may associate Los Angeles with movie stars, glitz and glamour, but when you arrive here you find that it's actually a diverse collection of neighborhoods. That upscale vibe, with the designer clothing stores and the fancy restaurants, is concentrated in the West Hollywood and Beverly Hills areas. Downtown is home to an eclectic art scene, while the beach areas are more casual and give you the chance to soak up some sun or stroll down the boardwalk. There's no shortage of direct flights from Houston to Los Angeles, and the flight only takes a little over three hours.

If you want to see how movies and TV shows are made while in Los Angeles, the best place to go is actually Burbank, not Hollywood, as there are studio tours available at Warner Bros. Universal Studios has some movie sets of its own and plenty of exciting rides. No trip to Southern California is complete without a trip to the beach, and Los Angeles has several fun options. Santa Monica is a popular choice, while Venice is a bit wilder. If you're used to that Houston humidity, the dry heat of Los Angeles is a nice change of pace.
