The question in Los Angeles is never what to do, but where to begin. Los Angeles is home to many famous attractions in a relatively concentrated space. Your choices include amusement parks, architectural landmarks, art museums and galleries, beaches, parks, hiking and shopping, to name a few. And after the sun goes down, you’ll find there’s an abundance of nightlife options, including movies (of course!), as well as live music and comedy by performers both legendary and yet-to-be-discovered.
A region of great diversity, you’ll also discover a world of culinary adventures. One thing Los Angeles does not offer its visitors and residents is whitewater rafting. For that you’ll need to escape the traffic and smog of Los Angeles to visit the beautiful rivers of the Sierra Nevada and come whitewater rafting with American River Recreation. We offer Class II and III whitewater rafting trips that your family can enjoy, and for those of you looking to boost your adrenaline, we offer great Class IV whitewater rafting experiences.
