If you are interested in an amazing art museum or a spectacular view of Los Angeles you must visit the Getty Center. Located just north of Sunset Blvd. on the 405 freeway in Los Angeles you will find one of the most beautiful museums in the world. The architecture will take you breath away. The Getty was designed by an architect named Richard Meier. The art exhibits at The Getty could takes days to go through if seen with the respect they deserve, but it is also doable to glance at everything in a half a day. The restaurants and diners at The Getty are all marvelous. You will find everything from a quick bite at a cafeteria type setting to a five course meal at a five star restaurant with views that will take your breath away. The gardens at The Getty are a great place to spend a sunny afternoon. You will feel as if you have escaped the rush and smog of LA and elevated yourself to a new place of peace, thought, and tranquility. The fountains and artistry of the flowers are amazing, and the back drop of the Los Angeles sky line is unbelievable. On a clear day (which is most in LA) you will be able to see the coast line of Malibu with the Pacific Ocean and the skyscrapers of West LA and downtown LA. You can also catch a glimpse of the Hollywood sign! An amazing back drop for pictures, this view is something everyone should take in. Something interesting about the Getty is you will park down below and ride a tram up the side of a cliff to make your way to the museum. You will not have to worry about finding parking because the parking garage will always have spots, and it is very safe. One of the best parts of The Getty is admission is always FREE! Another facet of The Getty is the Getty Villa located along Pacific Coast Highway in Malibu. This an extension of The Getty, and it is also free. The Getty Villa in Malibu is an educational center and museum dedicated to the study of the arts and cultures of ancient Greece, Rome, and Etruria. Both The Getty Museum in Brentwood, and The Getty Villa provide an amazing experience, and are just around the corner no matter where you are in Los Angeles. Chanel you inner artist and visit both! Enjoy!
