Think you're ready to spend 24 hours exploring all the wonders L.A. has to offer? Good. We've put together a step-by-step itinerary. It's all here. Of course, you don't have to do everything in one day. Make sure to come back and spend quality time enjoying L.A.'s diverse dining, multiculural activities and so much more.

6:31 a.m. - Wake up at Hotel Erwin



Located just 200 feet from the sand on Pacific Avenue, the Hotel Erwin features a brightly-colored, eclectic design that captures the creative spirit and energy of Venice. The onsite Barlo Kitchen + Cocktails is open for breakfast and dinner, offering “barn to belly” fare made with seasonal farmer’s market ingredients. The hotel’s rooftop High Lounge is the perfect spot to wind down after a day of exploring the area or to kick off a night of revelry.

7 a.m. - Take a Surf Lesson



With 75 miles of county coastline and numerous world-famous surf spots, Los Angeles is the quintessential city of the Endless Summer. Venice Beach is one of many great L.A. beaches, and perhaps the only one where the boardwalk upstages the Pacific Ocean. The acclaimed Venice Breakwater is a favorite local surf spot, built by Abbot Kinney in 1905 to protect his amusement pier. The artificial barrier is located north of the Venice Pier and Lifeguard Headquarters, and south of the Santa Monica Pier. The breakwater is the only place on the beach where waves break on both sides, while the sand is reportedly the finest for creating sand sculptures. If you're new to surfing or looking to enhance your skills, Aqua Surf School works with people of various skill level. 

9 a.m. - Stroll along the Venice Boardwalk



The world-famous Venice Ocean Front Walk (aka “the Boardwalk”) beckons from the doorstep of the Hotel Erwin. The boardwalk is one of the best places in L.A. for people watching, from colorful locals to visitors from around the globe. There’s something for everyone on the concrete boardwalk - on one side there are specialty shops, restaurants and uniquely-designed residences; on the other is a myriad of street performers, artists, fortune tellers and much more.

10:35 a.m. - Grab a Bite at Eggslut



Chef Alvin Cailan and cousin Jeff Vales have taken matters to the next level since trading in their food truck for an egg-centric stall at the landmark Grand Central Market in Downtown L.A. Sandwiches come on soft Sugarbloom Bakery brioche buns and include fillings like cheddar, honey mustard aioli, bacon, and/or house-made, chile-flecked turkey sausage. The Fairfax is a holdover from the days when Eggslut parked outside Coffee Commissary - the popular sandwich features soft scrambled eggs, Tillamook cheddar, chives, caramelized onions and Sriracha mayo. If that’s not substantial enough, consider the Gaucho with seared Wagyu tri-tip, chimichurri, pickled red onions, shaved Manchego and arugula, which of course comes with an egg.

11:31 a.m. - Visit the New Broad Museum



The Broad is a stunning contemporary art museum founded by philanthropists Eli and Edythe Broad on Grand Avenue in Downtown L.A.

Book a private room for you and your friends, whether you're there for the karaoke or the Atari.

3 a.m. - End up in the Hollywood Hills



In Los Angeles, you never know where the night will take you. In fact, you might even end up at a party in the hills at an architectural landmark. There are iconic houses across L.A. and many of them have made memorable appearances in film and TV. One of the most famous L.A. homes is the Sheats-Goldstein Residence, aka Jackie Treehorn’s house from The Big Lebowski.

Designed by famed architect John Lautner, the Sheats-Goldstein Residence is a prime example of American Organic Architecture - houses built in this style are an extension of the natural environment and of the owners for whom they were built. Situated on four acres, the property boasts sweeping city views and includes a pool, tropical garden, built-in concrete furniture designed by Lautner, a tennis court, and a three-story nightclub/office complex. In February 2016, it was announced that owner James Goldstein was donating the famous house to LACMA.

4:06 a.m. - It's Never Too Late (or Early) for Tacos



Los Angeles helped jumpstart the nationwide food truck craze, and there’s no better example of this quintessential L.A. experience than Tacos Leo, perhaps the most popular and beloved taco truck in the city. The renowned $1 al pastor tacos are directly shaved off the rotating spit (trompo in Spanish) onto a pair of griddled tortillas. These are available daily, though only in the evening and wee hours of the day. Their well-stocked salsa area includes all-you-can-ladle runny taco guacamole, and both solid red and green salsas. Be aware if you’re coming here after a night of drinking; the lines can be quite long on weekends. Don’t worry, their tacos are worth the wait. If you’re a real taco connoisseur, ask for an al pastor taco on a handmade tortilla. It might cost a little more, but you get much more of the meat and the texture is even better.

6 a.m. - Get a Couple Hours of Sleep



Make your way back to Hotel Erwin, rest for a couple hours and then do it all again!
