Tourists love Hollywood, but locals are wont to find the crowded streets irritating. However, some attractions are just too beautiful to pretend to dislike them. From a gorgeous museum full of ancient artifacts to one of the country’s most beautiful beaches, here are seven incredible landmarks locals love to show off.
Closer to home is famous Venice Beach. While some may dismiss this beach as a tourist attraction, it’s hard not to feel at peace after ditching the bustling boardwalk for the warm sand and rolling waves. Nearby Santa Monica offers similar ocean views, and the Ferris wheel on the pier is visible from a considerable distance.
