Los Angeles

This was my first time visiting Los Angeles back in 2017 :)

Each year on May 5th, Los Angeles hosts Fiesta Broadway: the largest Cinco de Mayo festival in the world. From sun up to sun down, expect to dance to mariachi bands, eat authentic street food, and thrill-seek on crazy carnival rides. If you’re interested in learning more about the history and culture behind the holiday, head to the Museum of Latin American Art or the traditional Mexican Marketplace on Olvera Street: the “birthplace of Los Angeles.”

Join Los Angeles in celebrating Hanukkah by attending Infinite Light, a Hanukkah Festival that “dedicates itself to reimagining Hanukkah through inclusive community building and creative Jewish experience.” If you’re in town for a quick visit, book a suite at the Montage Beverly Hills for a cozy stay and nightly menorah lighting ceremony in the hotel’s lobby. And don’t forget about the annual Hanukkah festival held at the Skirball Cultural Center for storytelling, good food, art, and live music.

The LA 1984 games were a triumphant occasion that paved a pathway for all future summer Olympic games. LA is a city rich in history and culture, that has a vibrant population and plenty of tasty eats, exciting sights, and stunning views. Plenty traveled from around the world to experience the glamor and effervescence uniquely offered by the eclectic neighborhoods of LA, while some of the most influential Olympic games took place in modern history.

Los Angeles is at the center of Mexican culture in the USA, boasting one of the largest Mexican-American populations in the country. Along with plenty of mariachi performances, flavorful authentic cuisine, live festivals across the city, and themed events, LA makes for one of the best destinations to party the week away. This world-famous city sparkles on Cinco de Mayo, with huge parades and festivities as well as more off-the-beaten-path options. Try a Hollywood pub crawl, you are in the city of stars after all, and spend your weekend dancing at one of the countless live music events, LA is where the fiesta is at.
