About the Trip

What is it like to live in the entertainment capital of the world? Experience the “happy life” for your troop on this extended getaway to Los Angeles!

Your group has the option of doing anything from taking a tour of Los Angeles, Beverly Hills, Hollywood, and Venice Beach, to stopping (and shopping!) on Rodeo Drive.  The troop can cruise down the Sunset Strip and stop on Hollywood Boulevard to walk on the Hollywood Walk of Fame and see the Mann’s Chinese and Kodak Theaters. You can see everything from the Hollywood Sign, Mulholland Drive, Westwood Village, and much more! With Hostelling International LA/Santa Monica, your troop can enjoy the getaway of a lifetime!

Picture It

Santa Monica, California is a trendy beach town adjacent to the famous West Los Angeles and Hollywood district. It is a safe, and relaxing starting base while visiting Los Angeles. A few blocks from the hostel is the beach, the pier and amusement park (including a Ferris wheel, roller coaster, games, and snacks). The troop can rent bikes and safely explore miles of beaches! There is also shopping and restaurants along the well-known Third Street Promenade, just two blocks from the hostel. In addition to exploring the city, the troop will also experience hostelling first hand. With shared facilities and daily activities that encourage interaction, HI exists to foster intercultural exchange and understanding among individuals of all ages and backgrounds. There are common room spaces for the Scouts to hang out in, and can also give troops the chance to chat with fellow guests about their travels, and their hostel experiences. Hostelling encourages Girl Scouts to think about cultural customs and overcoming stereotypes.
