What's New in Los Angeles
Summer is in full swing here in sunny Los Angeles! A centerpiece of the latest summer openings is the Conrad Los Angeles, the first West Coast location for the luxurious Hilton brand debuting in Downtown L.A.’s The Grand, a new development bringing dynamic shops, restaurants and energy to the DTLA neighborhood. We are also seeing an abundance of family-friendly spots opening across the region, including fresh takes on the pizza parlor with Pijja Palace and Olivia, a new exhibit at the Getty Museum exploring Medieval knights, creatures and castles, experiences that immerse guests in the worlds of Harry Potter and Despicable Me at Universal Studios Hollywood and even a new program that allows passengers to bring their furry friends on Amtrak’s Pacific Surfliner train. With all these exciting new activities and experiences, it’s the perfect time for a summer getaway to the City of Angels.
