Top 5 Things to Do in West Hollywood!

Revolver in West Hollywood, California

West Hollywood ranks as one of the coolest, most creative cities in all of Southern California. Whatever you feel like seeing, doing, or indulging in, here you’ll find choices galore. There are other places to find entertainment in this town, but it’s tough to beat West Hollywood’s mix of urban-chic, easygoing, and eccentric. Here are 5 ways to enjoy a day (or night) out in West Hollywood:

1. Dance a Little, Flirt a Little

West Hollywood has earned a stellar reputation for LGBTQ acceptance and pride. And that’s something to celebrate! Have a drink, feel the beat, then get up on your feet and dance. Santa Monica Boulevard boasts place after place to party, including Mickys and The Chapel.

Plus, the WeHo PickUp—a free hop-on/hop-off trolleyruns weekend nights so there’s no need to drive! Take a ride Friday & Saturday from 8PM-3AM and Sunday 2PM-10PM.

2. Neon Lights & Crazy Nights

Since the 1920s, The Sunset Strip has pushed boundaries – literally. Because it was outside Los Angeles city limits in an unincorporated part of Los Angeles County, it fell under the jurisdiction of the County Sheriff’s Department, which was more lenient than the LAPD. So, follow tradition and walk on the wild side. The Strip’s clubs still draw top performers and the restaurants are worthy of any A-lister.

For a bite to eat, grab a table at Tesse, Pearls Rooftop, Den on Sunset, or Wahlburgers.

For a quick Jump on The Sunset Trip free trolley on Friday & Saturday from 7PM-3AM.
