Los Angeles launches app to explore the best of the city

If you're planning a trip to LA, you'll need this app.

Los Angeles is definitely having a moment with its revived arts and culture scene, and now there's an official app to help plan your trip.

It's the ultimate pocket guide for visitors to make the most of their time in the City of Angels, and the brand new app personalises suggestions based on the weather, time and your location.

On a hot day, for example, expect to see the best beaches, the nearest ice cream and the quickest transport options at the touch of a button.

In a sprawling metropolis like Los Angeles it's hard to know where to start when exploring all the entertainment options on offer, so the app is a must-have for tourists.

The Discover LA app is made by the city's official tourism board in partnership with the Los Angeles County Arts Commission, so who better to recommend world-class museums, diverse dining options and captivating events?

Other features include daily highlights of top LA events and exclusive urban exploration challenges, kicking off with an ice cream-themed crawl through the city.

You'll also be able to find locations featured in film and television, as well as WiFi hotspots and nearby accomodation.

The iOS app is out now. Android users hold tight - a version for you will launch soon.

The app comes hot on the heels of a new campaign by the city of Los Angeles to remind tourists that everyone is welcome in the city.
