Happy New Year readers!

I hope everyone had a wonderful holiday season!

I have an exciting new blog post today about the City of Angels to kick off the new year in educational travel articles.

Los Angeles is famous far and wide as the home of Hollywood stardom, but look beyond the glitz and glamour and teachers will find a destination that should prove both entertaining and enlightening to students wanting something different from an educational tour.

Looking for a museum with an edge? Try the Museum of Modern Art. Looking to gaze on history in person? Walk on over to the nearby La Brea Tar Pits and Page Museum. More interested in the art of design? Then the A+D Architecture and Design Museum is for you. All of these and much more are located on the so-called Museum Row just off Miracle Mile.

One location that shouldn’t be missed is the illustrious Getty Museum, located just off the 405 Freeway. Nestled in the Hollywood Hills, this gorgeous vantage point provides spectacular views as well as many incredible exhibitions and examples of classical and modern art from across the globe. If you’re lucky, you might also be able to catch a free concert on the museum’s gorgeous and well-manicured grounds.

Students looking for a bit of Hollywood glamour to go with their educational tour should consider a visit to downtown Hollywood, in particular Sunset Boulevard. A studio tour is also an opportunity that shouldn’t be missed. Both Universal Studios and Warner Brothers have fantastic back-lot visits complete with guides and famous sets aplenty.

L.A. offers so much in the way of entertainment, education, and fun. The possibilities are nearly endless. So do yourself a favor and be sure to do some research before you go so you don’t miss out on all the wonderful opportunities like rare concerts, live tapings, film festivals and more!

For a sample itinerary that EA Tours offers, you can check it out here.

I hope you're ready to book your next educational tour now. Stay tuned for tomorrow's Photo Friday.

Have a wonderful start to the new year,
