What’s Happening in Los Angeles in December?

No polar vortex here…yet!?  Los Angeles in December is typically dry with cool nights, and a light breeze.  You want a white Christmas…don’t come to L.A.  Glitterati Tours has listed a handful of events to enjoy when in Los Angeles in December.  Remember, pre-book for everything.  This includes hotels, restaurants, studio tours, city tours of L.A., and Broadway-style shows.  While most locals depart for the east coast, and the midwest, the city is still full of visitors and tourists taking advantage of our lively city, and great weather.  Plus, the Rose Bowl games around New Years, bring in approximately 120,000 extra guests.
