Los Angeles is celebrated around the world for its music industry of stellar artists and several raved-after clubs, but equally as worthy are the hidden and forbidden music venues, each with its own personality. While diverse enough to have something for everyone, these clubs are the same in their absolute devotion to music they judge the best.
Amoeba Music is actually an independent music chain collector of old and new CDs, vinyl records, cassettes and movies. The Hollywood store, one of the largest independent music stores in the world, is itself a landmark. Entering the store is like being devoured by a boundless utopia where records rule all. While the flooring of CDs is intimidating, the low prices and the immaculate organization allow you to glean to your heart’s content. Equally exciting are the free live shows and album signing by local artists scheduled every few days. In March, an established band and Grammy winner that started in Downtown Los Angeles, La Santa Cecilia, is coming to town. The store is a mecca for people from every music niche to meet friends, enjoy the music and bring it with them.

Since you are here, we would like to share our vision for the future of travel - and the direction Culture Trip is moving in.
Culture Trip launched in 2011 with a simple yet passionate mission: to inspire people to go beyond their boundaries and experience what makes a place, its people and its culture special and meaningful — and this is still in our DNA today. We are proud that, for more than a decade, millions like you have trusted our award-winning recommendations by people who deeply understand what makes certain places and communities so special.
Increasingly we believe the world needs more meaningful, real-life connections between curious travellers keen to explore the world in a more responsible way. That is why we have intensively curated a collection of premium small-group trips as an invitation to meet and connect with new, like-minded people for once-in-a-lifetime experiences in three categories: Culture Trips, Rail Trips and Private Trips. Our Trips are suitable for both solo travelers, couples and friends who want to explore the world together.
Culture Trips are deeply immersive 5 to 16 days itineraries, that combine authentic local experiences, exciting activities and 4-5* accommodation to look forward to at the end of each day. Our Rail Trips are our most planet-friendly itineraries that invite you to take the scenic route, relax whilst getting under the skin of a destination. Our Private Trips are fully tailored itineraries, curated by our Travel Experts specifically for you, your friends or your family.
We know that many of you worry about the environmental impact of travel and are looking for ways of expanding horizons in ways that do minimal harm - and may even bring benefits.
