    The Art & Science of Coaching in Los Angeles

    Coaching Goes To Hollywood

    Since its founding on September 4, 1781, Los Angeles has grown into a dynamic metropolis with its eye on the future, while preserving its extraordinary cultural heritage. LA is one of the most ethnically diverse cities in the world, making it a truly global city.

    From San Pedro to the San Fernando Valley, LA is home to 211 sites that are on the National Register of Historic Places, including the Los Angeles Memorial Coliseum, the Bradbury Building, Watts Towers and the Ennis House. As the entertainment capital of the world and home to more creative residents than any other city, LA has a long history with film, TV, music and literature.

    Things To Do In Los Angeles

    1. Dining & Nightlife

    Los Angeles has one of the most dynamic dining scenes in the country, offering everything from street food to Michelin-starred restaurants. From California cuisine to organic ingredients, food trucks, and Restaurant Week (July 2013), LA’s culinary influence can be felt across the country. Foodies can experience the fine dining of Wolfgang Puck, Thomas Keller and Nobu Matsuhisa, as well as a new generation of culinary stars like Kogi BBQ Truck founder Roy Choi, Top Chef champion Michael Voltaggio, and Ricardo Zarate, named Food & Wine’s Best New Chef in America. Global kitchens can be found in culinary neighborhoods across the city, while LA’s beach cities offer some of the best oceanfront dining in Southern California.

    Los Angeles nightlife offers endless entertainment options, whether it’s a quiet drink with that special someone or dancing the night away with thousands of fellow party people. Downtown LA’s vibrant nightlife includes L.A. LIVE and numerous bars and nightclubs. In Hollywood, dress to impress at Drai’s and The Colony. Universal CityWalk Hollywood has everything from the Hard Rock Cafe to the dueling pianos of Howl at the Moon. LA mixologists create some of the best cocktails in the country at top bars, restaurants and hotels. Laugh it up at the Hollywood Improv Comedy Club or the Laugh Factory.

    2. Culture

    One of the best ways to experience Los Angeles is by visiting its incredible cultural attractions. LA has more museums and theaters than any U.S. city, and a thriving music and gallery scene. An LA Philharmonic performance at Walt Disney Concert Hall is a must-see, as well as an outdoor concert at the Hollywood Bowl and shows at other famous music venues. LA’s world class museums include the stunning Getty Center in Brentwood and the Los Angeles County Museum of Art on Museum Row. Monthly artwalks take place throughout the city, including popular events in Downtown LA and Venice Beach. And of course, when it comes to film and television, LA is the entertainment capital of the world.

    3. Activities

    It would take several lifetimes to experience all the activities that Los Angeles offers. There are world famous theme parks like Universal Studios Hollywood, Six Flags Magic Mountain and Disneyland, while studios like Universal, Warner Brothers, Paramount Pictures and Sony Pictures offer the ultimate film and TV fan experience. Attractions like the USS Iowa and the Ronald Reagan Presidential Library offer something for the entire family. Shop at retail meccas like The Grove and the Beverly Center, or browse eclectic shopping neighborhoods and bargain outlets. Recreational activities include spectacular beaches and hundreds of miles of hiking and biking trails, or decompress at one of LA’s top spas.

    4. Shopping

    Shopping is one of the best activities in Los Angeles, from digging through vintage stores to shopping for luxury goods. Top shopping centers include the Fashion District in Downtown LA, The Grove, Beverly Center, Hollywood & Highland, Glendale Galleria, Third Street Promenade and Santa Monica Place. Eclectic shopping neighborhoods can be found throughout LA, while museum gift shops offer unique cultural gifts. Rodeo Drive is a must-see for the jet set, while bargain hunters have several outlets to choose from. Let LA Tourism guide you on your shopping journey across the city. Come to Los Angeles for the expert life coach training you will receive from world class trainers and treat yourself to the experience of a lifetime.
