The bright lights and glitzy strips of LA sit some 6,600 miles over the Pacific Ocean from North Island, NZ. But don't let the distance put you off celeb spotting on Hollywood Boulevard or planning days twirling on rollerblades around Venice Beach. There are plenty of cheap flights to Los Angeles from New Zealand that can whisk you to the iconic West Coast city in just 17-20 hours when going indirect. It's likely you'll land in large LAX, which is a stone's throw from the wave-bashed sands of Santa Monica and the beating heart of Downtown LA alike!
Hit the cool boulevards of Hollywood to spot celebrities and see the iconic white sign on the Hollywood Hills.
Disneyland has been entertaining families in LA ever since 1955. Come to see Sleeping Beauty's castle and ride rollercoasters above the big city.
