Though Christmas is at the end of December, the holiday season starts as early as November in Los Angeles. As one of the top fashion capitals, L.A. has already dressed up in gorgeous decorations to welcome this fancy time of the year. These are some of our favorites spots.
RODEO DRIVE AND BEVERLY HILLS
If you love fashion, you must know the world-famous shopping street. “Luxurious” is a word made for this place, but it is good enough of an experience to just walk around the fabulous stores – you may even run into celebrities who live in Beverly Hills! If you haven’t been there, Christmas is a perfect time to visit. Last week some of our students really enjoy our free walking tour around Beverly Hills and Rodeo Drive.
LA ZOO LIGHTS
Enjoy a wild wonderland of light attending to this ticketed event at Los Angeles Zoo. Millions of colorful lights decorate a huge area surrounded by nature: Giant glittering snowflakes, Christmas trees, and the world’s largest illuminated pop-up storybook. A must-do Christmas attraction in California.
Can you imagine how the Happiest Place on Earth looks like in the happiest time of the year? If not, how do “300 Christmas trees”, “400,000 twinkling lights”, and “36 cast members decorating for 35 days” sound like? Amazing, right? You can always visit Disneyland in regular days, but this time, Mickey Mouse and his friends will be greeting you under mistletoes – that makes Christmas more magically beautiful!
UNIVERSAL STUDIOS HOLLYWOOD
This famous theme park is not only the place where you can ride Transformers, The Mummy or Jurassic World attractions but also a place where you can create new Holiday traditions with friends and other students. With thousands of Christmas lights and many characters meet & greets, Universal Studios Hollywood offers a lot of options to celebrate the Holiday Season, including the Grinchmas and, of course, the incredibly beautiful Christmas celebrations at The Wizarding World of Harry Potter. Impressive!
EC LOS ANGELES CHRISTMAS 😛
Los Angeles is not only a beautiful place to visit, but also a wonderful city to learn English. Come to EC Los Angeles during the Holiday Season and you will love our special Christmas decorations! Our tree symbolizes the union between the EC students from all over the world.
