To cover Los Angeles' approximately 500 square miles could take days, unless you've booked a trip with Coastal Helicopters. Its fleet of luxury choppers offers guests unparalleled views of the city from above, giving them a serene bird's-eye view of all the hustle and bustle. Beyond their standard tours, the trained pilots also lead aerial photography tours of California's urban and natural wonders, such as the ancient erosion pattern that mysteriously spells "Hollywood." They lift off from some 25 locations across the state, concentrated mainly around LA but spanning as far north as San Francisco.
