When you’re about to embark on a trip of a lifetime it’s always best to be prepared and plan in advance. Many people just like to go with the flow, but the more you plan, the better your time will be spent. Let’s talk about a perfect trip that many people dream about, for various reasons: visiting Los Angeles.

Visiting LA can end up being the trip of a lifetime, there is just so much to see and do there. You can experience the phenomenal food scenes, concerts, and world famous hotels in West Hollywood. Let’s take a look at these five tips to help plan your perfect LA trip.

Book and Schedule in Advance

A simple trick that many travelers have learned over the years is to book and schedule your events, hotels, tours, etc well in advance. This not only saves time and money, but it will give you plenty of time to rearrange should something come up or conflict with another event. Booking and scheduling in advance guarantee you the best prices possible as well as the best available seating, timing, etc. Another benefit of this is that many places also offer price drop rebates.

Pack Accordingly

Even if visiting in early spring, the weather in LA is quite warm during the day and a little chillier at night. Bring clothing that can be layered for easy removal can be a big benefit. Don’t forget to pack an umbrella too, it can get a little wet during the day and sometimes the evenings too. Here’s what you should pack in your suitcase for your LA trip:

  • One or two pairs of jeans.
  • A casual skirt.
  • A fancy dress for anything formal you may have planned.
  • Don’t forget your shorts!
  • Thinking in layers, bring t-shirts and tank tops – it gets hot!
  • Bring a pair of sandals for the beach.
  • A pair of dress shoes for a formal event or visiting a nightclub.
  • A pair of sneakers or walking shoes – there will be plenty of walking!
  • Bring a bathing suit – you will want to hit the jacuzzi in your hotel or maybe even the beach.
  • Don’t forget to bring a sweater, just in case.

Having these essentials will ensure that you are comfortable during your visit to Los Angeles.
