Tips / Destination

Los Angeles is known as the entertainment capital of the world, but it also offers plenty of attractions for more artistic-minded travelers. If you’re in this camp, skip the studio tour and check out one of these four great art spaces while you’re in the City of Angels.

The LACMA

The Los Angeles County Museum of Art has one of the most expansive collections in the world, so big it would be impossible to see in one trip. Established in 1961, the LACMA now houses more than 150,000 works spanning from contemporary works to historical artifacts of antiquity.

The Getty

The J. Paul Getty Museum actually has two locations: the Getty Villa dedicated to the cultures of Greece, Rome and Etruria; and the Getty Center, which features a variety of visual arts in a beautiful campus on the Pacific Palisades. The collection is particularly known for its pre-20th century artwork, the most popular of which is Vincent Van Gogh’s Irises.

The Broad

The city’s newest contemporary art museum opened last September in Downtown Los Angeles, financed by philanthropists Eli and Edythe Broad to house their collection of post-war art. Artists featured include Andy Warhol, Cindy Sherman and Roy Liechtenstein, in addition to several installations like Yayoi Kusama’s Infinity Mirrored Room.

 

Gallery Row

Museums are common attractions for visiting new cities, but if you want to experience the local art scene head to Gallery Row and the Downtown Art Walk.

Work and Play in Italy

ONCE THE FINAL MEETING WRAPS and the last contract is signed and sealed with a handshake, what’s next? Do you catch a flight back home or do you take advantage of the destination? If your next business trip is to Italy, we suggest adding a few more days to explore the country’s most amazing hot spots. Make time for more than a mouthwater- ing Italian meal in these three cities.

Romwe App

Online shopping continues to soar in popularity with more people choosing to browse an entire catalogue of options instead of making a trip to the store. It makes sense because people are busy and sometimes don’t have time to spend hours browsing a store only to buy a few outfits. When shopping online, people can buy items sporadically or fill up carts and purchase them later. Online shopping is now more than just searching on the web, it’s also swiping through an app. Apps make it easier than ever to keep up with sales, new items and trends.

Trazee In-Depth: Not Your Usual Spring and Summer Festivals, 2019

With the early days of spring behind us, the busy days of summer festivals and events will be here before you know it. Most festival favorites, like Bonnaroo, Firefly, Coachella, Lollapalooza, CMA Music Festival and Austin City Limits, have lineups already announced, early-bird pricing expired and tickets mostly sold out or close to it, but, don’t worry, there are far more unique events taking place all over the world. If not this year, at least keep them on your radar for next.

Enjoy the Open Road on Your Terms

For most of us, time in the car is “me time.” You can listen to that podcast you’re captivated by, blast that pop song and sing along at the top of your lungs or listen to the next chapter in that biography e-book you’re almost finished. A road trip only amplifies those opportunities. So, next time you’re traveling by road, take the wheel and take control. Opt for a rental car on your next vacation, rather than a rideshare, taxi or public transportation, and enjoy the open road on your own terms.

International Tabletop Day started a few years ago as a reason for people to get together and participate in a hobby they love.
