Exploring novel places and meeting new people has always been a passion for Santosh and his wife. And this time, this passion took them all the way to the US where they let the luxuries of the Western civilization pamper them without end. See what they did on their 3 days romantic trip to the USA that made them fall in love with this corner of the world!
I have always been awestruck with those shiny cities and beaches of USA that I used to see on television. And I had always wanted to explore Los Angeles, the home of Hollywood! Lucky for me and my wife, we finally got a chance when I was asked to go to the US on an official tour. I decided to make use of the opportunity and reached out to TravelTriangle.
They crafted for me a great itinerary for the 3 days that I had for myself so that it didn’t interfere with my official business and let me see the best of the US with ease and comfort. I loved the fact that they let me customize my itinerary to whatever extent I wanted, and in no time at all, we were on a plane to America, gliding over its tall buildings and postcard-perfect beaches!

The Best Experiences Of Our A 3 Day Los Angeles Trip
We had limited time at hand. But we managed to bank on some amazing experiences in this beautiful country:
1. Santa Monica Beach
It’s the cleanest beach I have ever seen in my life, and probably the most beautiful as well. From swimming, surfing, biking, beachside gymnastics, to a simple game of volleyball, the beach is fit for all kinds of activities. Santa Monica Beach is located in Southern California and has been featured in many Hollywood movies owing to its scenic beauty and location. It’s among the best Los Angeles attractions that one should not miss on their tour.
2. Shopping In Los Angeles
We discovered that Los Angeles is a great place for shopping. From clothes, luggage bags, handbags, watches, to chocolates, we bought a variety of merchandise at the Marina Pacifica Mall as well as the Long Beach Towne Center. And it all came at very reasonable rates taking into account the superior quality of goods there. But Los Angeles isn’t just about the big malls and boutique outlets. There are various cheap shopping places in Los Angeles like the Fashion District in Santee Alley, TJ Maxx, Macy’s Marshall’s to name a few.
3. Whale & Dolphin Watching
We cruised over the Pacific for over an hour and then waited for these beings to show up in the middle of those waters for another one, but they didn’t seem to want to meet us. And right when we had given up and were preparing to turn up, a school of dolphins dramatically appeared and started prancing about in the distance. It’s one of the most magical things I’ve ever seen! There were moments post that when we could also spot a whale close by, and the joy of watching these majestic creatures in their natural habitat can’t be put down in words. One can either include whale watching cruises in their package or just book one when they get to the Long Beach in Los Angeles.

A. Against popular notion, the people in the US are very friendly and helpful. Another thing I absolutely loved is that the roads are in excellent condition and maintained regularly. Driving in Los Angeles was among the most fun parts of my trip. There were a few other interesting facts that we got to learn about their country. One of them was that the American people love eating pizza more than the average Italian! We also learned that the world’s largest amphitheater is located in Los Angeles and is called The Hollywood Bowl. it has the capacity to hold an audience of over 18,000 people at a time and has hosted some of the great performances in history.

A. The USA is a vast country. One needs at least 20 days to be able to explore the best of it. And travelers should always opt for a package tour since it gives them the liberty to explore all major attractions at economical rates.
