5 Reasons to Choose LA for Your Christmas Vacation

It is the season where we are supposed to be jolly, but it can be difficult when you are overwhelmed, underfunded, and super tired of running around trying to find the perfect gift that just doesn’t exist! This year, however, can be different; you just need to get away.

Close your eyes and imagine a holiday season spent relaxing, laughing, and rediscovering the things that make your immediate family so wonderful, all while visiting sunny Los Angeles. Here’s some reasons why this LA vacation could be the best idea you have ever had!

No More Have-to-Do’s

As soon as the Thanksgiving dishes are cleaned and put away, we have a never-ending list streaming through the back of our heads filled with all the things we have to do! Wouldn’t it be nice if this year the stream turned to a list of only the things we want to do? Your LA vacation spent in a Luxury Rental Group Christmas escape can be a time spent doing what you want to do, making this Christmas the best of all!

Ditch the Snow and Embrace the Sun

Shoveling sunshine is always a way better deal in our minds than shoveling snow, and when you visit Los Angeles during any season, you can forget all about black ice and slushy streets; seasonal memories can be made under a blue and sunny sky!

See a Live Performance of A Christmas Carol

Christmas isn’t Christmas without binge watching all our favorite holiday movies, but a vacation in Los Angeles allows you to amp up the wonder value. A Christmas Carol is being performed at A Noise Within (3352 East Foothill Boulevard, Pasadena) from December 1st through December 23rd, and poor Timmy’s troubles are even more heart wrenching when viewed live!

Holiday Ice Rink at Pershing Square

Pershing Square, located in the heart of Los Angeles, has never been more festive, thanks to the addition of an outdoor ice skating rink that is only open during the season! Inexpensive and romantic, your bride of 25 years will fall in love with you all over again when you celebrate the holidays gliding over ice with thousands of twinkle lights brightly sparkling in the background!

Quiet Christmas, Quiet Night When You Vacation in Los Angeles

Christmas is always a time of noise and hassle, but when you stay in one of our Luxury Rental Group vacation escapes, the quiet will be a welcome respite. Sleep late, open presents with the family, then head out to the Belvedere for a Christmas feast prepared by others. Reserve yours today and enjoy the extra time you have to just breathe this holiday season!

Top Reasons to Visit Los Angeles for Halloween

While there are dozens of reasons to visit Los Angeles all year long, the spookiest season of the year casts a special spell over the city, leading to some of the most fun and exciting Halloween bashes imaginable. Read on to learn more about kicking off Halloween in L.A.!

The UNICEF Masquerade Ball

Tickets are pricy for this event, beginning at $175.00 a pop, but it’s for a noble cause: raising emergency funds for UNICEF and empowering Syrian refugee women in Jordan. The upscale soiree is a sophisticated affair held at the Clifton’s Republic, where you and your guests can dance all night long, drink champagne, and enjoy an open bar. The party takes place on Friday, October 27th at 9:00pm.

West Hollywood Halloween Costume Carnaval

The West Hollywood Halloween Costume Carnaval is an enormous Halloween street party held from 6:00pm to 11:00pm on the night of October 31st that draws in as many as half a million attendees. This is not a family-friendly Halloween in LA event, but if you and your guests are up for dressing in your Halloween best and drinking and dancing the night away, this party is where it’s at. Admission is free and open to the public. While alcohol isn’t allowed in the street, the bars nearby will host parties and drink specials right alongside the incredible event, which even has live music and food trucks.

Santa Monica Zombie Crawl

A pub crawl with a Halloween twist: participants have to dress and act like zombies, right down to their walk and their talk—or rather, grunts and growls! Bars throughout the Santa Monica area will be participating, offering $4.00 drafts and $5.00 well drinks and shots. Tickets are $12.00 if purchased in advance or $15.00 on the day-of, on October 28th.

Halloween Horror Nights

Universal Studios experiences an outbreak of monsters each Halloween, with the iconic theme park transforming into a series of mazes, scare zones, and the Terror Tram. See characters from iconic horror movies and television shows, including The Shining, Saw, American Horror Story, The Walking Dead, and more. The event takes place from mid-September through early November. Discounts are available on certain days; it’s recommended that tickets be purchased in advance.

Cabaret de L’Enfer

Held at The Edison in historic downtown L.A., Cabaret de L’Enfer is an underground Halloween dance party and live performance event that infuses a vintage vibe into your celebrations. Enjoy stilt walkers, tarot card readers, DJ sets, and more for only $25.00 per person. The party begins at 7:00pm on the night of October 31st.
