About Los Angeles

Los Angeles or LA is the most populous city in California. Known as the City of Angels, it’s a cultural epicenter of the West Coast of the United States. It sits near the Pacific Ocean and is surrounded by smaller cities and communities that make up the Greater Los Angeles area. There is an endless list of things to see and do in Los Angeles, and no visit to the United States is complete without a stop in LA.

The best time of year to visit Los Angeles is during the shoulder seasons of summer when prices will be more reasonable since kids are in school, and you won’t get trapped in a blistering heat wave. You’ll still have sunshine and warmth so you can enjoy the beach and all the outdoor fun that LA has to offer.

To get to Los Angeles, finding a flight to the massive airport LAX is accessible from any major city, both in the United States and worldwide. It’s one of the busiest airports in the world. You can also arrive by Greyhound bus, or drive if you plan on making a road trip. Be aware that traffic in and around Los Angeles is infamously terrible, so plan on leaving with extra time whenever you try to get anywhere.

    41' Hatteras Luxury Yacht in Huntington Beach, California

    This was such a great experience! My family and I celebrated my mother's 66th Birthday cruising on the harbour. The staff were very patient, kind and helpful from the start. Donna was very responsive from the beginning to the end making booking very easy. The boat was clean, accommodating and everything they said it was i the advertising. I would recommend Journey to anyone looking to book a wonderful cruise to celebrate or just relax on the harbour with some beautiful views and good vibes!

    We had the most amazing experience on this boat. The captain was friendly, helpful and hospitable. I learned the captain’s hospitality can really influence your trip and so I couldn’t recommend this boat enough. The boat was beautiful and the trip was much more than we expected.

    Cruise In Style On Roomy Sailboat - 36' Catalina

    Jared was an amazing captain. We sailed across the channel to Catalina for 2 nights. It was the perfect experience - a combination of sea romance and reality. I wanted to learn as much as I could about sailing and Jared was happy to teach hands on. He's a very nice guy as well. He gave us our space at anchor during the day. Living on a boat can get tight at times. The harbor at Catalina was beautiful and I got plenty of opportunities to swim. It was a great experience. I hope I have the opportunity again.

    Beneteau 40 Cruising Sloop in Marina del Rey with Captain Mark

    Fabulous day touring the Santa Monica Bay with Captain Mark! Five star service - from entertaining conversation, perfect sailing weather and an extra tour around the marina to see the boat slips and marina wildlife. An unexpected treat included being environmentally sensitive and allowing the group to use the net to retrieve some party balloons that had been floating along the bay. We had an excellent day with Captain Mark and would absolutely recommend this trip with a wonderful captain!

    Mark was an amazing Captain. He was very informative and a great communicator from our initial inquiry, to booking, and all through out the actual sail. Weather was gloomy but that did not stop us from having a beautiful and relaxing sail. I highly recommend.
