CHILL at The Queen Mary: "Wear extra layers if you want to last more than a short time viewing the large number of sculptures inside the "Ice Kingdom." It's cold even for those who aren't used to sun and warmth 90 percent of the time!"
Mission Inn: "If there's "no room at the Inn" and you're not spending the night, at least make a day of it and enjoy all that the hotel has to offer – from spa treatments to a drink from their "12 Days of Holiday Cocktails" menu at the hotel's bar, 54 Degrees at Duane's."
The LA Mart Day Spa at The Reef: "Jackie Hesley of The Reef Day Spa is available to help you relax downtown. Sign up for a Mini-Spa Boutique treatment or arrange to have Mobile Spa servicing in Downtown Los Angeles, California. Her trendy spa products will put a smile on your face or any of your downtown LA clients. Ask for a demo of VIP spa treatments."
Los Angeles is a place that lends itself to checking off bucket-list experiences, for it is packed with attractions that are known throughout the world as must-do experiences. You haven't really lived until you've been to Disneyland at least once, made a trip to Universal Studios and placed your feet in the cement footprints made by world-famous movie stars in front of the Chinese Theatre in Hollywood. So many of L.A.'s hotspots have been memorialized in films and on television that they have become necessary stops along the way, from Venice Beach and the Santa Monica Pier to the Griffith Park Observatory and the Getty Center. Angelenos love roaming from the water to the mountains, soaking in the natural beauty of Southern California one day and tackling the man-made challenge of riding the world's biggest and fastest roller coasters the next. The city is so large and diverse you'll need to make sure your car is gassed up and ready to roll, for some of these places are 50 miles apart, yet still all a part of our huge sprawling city.
