As one of the most famous cities in the country, LA is a popular travel destination and sees over 47 million visitors every year.

Below are 7 accessible activities to try out during your next trip to LA.
1. Warner Brothers Studio
Warner Brothers Studio is one of the most famous film studios in the world, home to many popular films and shows through the decades. Several different tours are offered, each giving the opportunity to see different sets and attractions.

A tour through their grounds will take you through 120 acres of gardens, a vast American and European art collection, and a library with over 11 million different items.
4. Grammy Museum
The Grammy Museum was founded in 2008 by the Recording Academy and AEG to create a space which promotes the history and knowledge of music. The museum offers a range of permanent and traveling exhibits that dive into the history and culture behind the Grammy Awards and their music. They also offer a special program, Sensory Saturdays, which creates a sensory-friendly experience through measures such as lowering the light and noise levels and limited admission to avoid crowds.
5. La Brea Tar Pits & Museum
Over 3.5 million fossils have been found in the La Brea Tar Pits, all housed on site at the museum. The museum features fossils, life-size replicas of the animals they came from, and recreation of a tar pit. You can even watch as paleontologists work on current dig sites and process the recently discovered fossils. One of their current excavation projects, Project 23, was discovered when the Museum of Art began digging for a parking garage and unearthed 23 deposits of fossils, including that of an adult mammoth!
The famous neighborhood within the greater Los Angeles Region has a lot of must-do things itself. Take a roll along the Hollywood Walk of Fame to see some of the over 2,600 stars along the 1.3-mile strip.
