Head To Downtown L.A., Travel Around the Globe

Is it ever too early to start thinking about your next vacation? We certainly don't think so. Quite frankly, we’re ready to book our next fun-in-the-sun trip, pronto.
And then reality rears its ugly head, and we remember that we can’t quite escape from the everyday just yet. That's okay though. We’ve got the next best thing lined up: a mini-vacation you can take in town — we're talking about driving out to the L.A. Convention Center for the 14th Annual LA Times Travel Show.
Yes, it's an event at a convention center, but hear us out. With hundreds of exhibitors from all over the world, there is some legitimately cool info to be had, and some great inspiration for your next workday vacation fantasy. Plus, if you’re feeling adventurous, you can try out their awesome zip line, climb a rock wall, or glide down a rappel tower. Or you can sit back, relax, and check out all the cool cultural performances while you mosey around sampling some serious culinary feats of international deliciousness.
The best part about this mini two-day getaway is the chance to win the real deal — your own (free!) vacation. And when that happens, you'll invite us to come along, right?
When: Friday, January 27, from 9 a.m. to 6 p.m.; Saturday & Sunday, January 28 through 29, from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m.
