After months of red tape, travel restrictions have finally begun to ease up. Of course, not everyone is ready to accept visitors straight away. Of those who are, though, the famous City of Angels is among the most eager. They’ve spent upwards of nineteen months preparing for a triumphant return to form. Now that opportunity has presented itself, they’re looking to welcome Canadian travelers with open arms. If you want to be one of them, read on; we’ve got the scoop on how Los Angeles is looking to make a comeback.
What is #StartYourComeback?
We’ve all spent our fair share of time cooped up indoors over the past two years. Some spent that time bagged out on the couch, glued to streaming services. Others, like the tourism board of Los Angeles, took the opportunity to get some work done. As the pandemic raged on, they invested in L.A.’s attractions, hotels, and restaurants. Now, to celebrate the clouds clearing, they’ve launched the #StartYourComeback campaign, inviting one and all to experience the splendors they’ve been hard at work refining. Whether you’re a returning tourist, or a first-time visitor to the City of Angels, they’re ready to blow you away.
Who’s Running it?
#StartYourComeback is the brainchild of the Los Angeles Tourism & Convention Board. The program was conceived as a way to breathe new life into the city, to make up for the long bouts of lockdown. To this end, Los Angeles Tourism has partnered with Hollywood icons, such as Warner Bros. Studio Tour and Universal Studios, as well as local airlines and hotels. Moreover, to ensure the safety of citizens and visitors alike, they’ve paired with CLEAR Health Pass – a mobile app that relays information related to COVID-19. CLEAR has worked closely with event organizers and planners to flesh out safety protocols. If that’s not proof enough of their commitment to visitors’ wellbeing, L.A.’s status as the first Sharecare VERIFIED destination in the United States should be.
What is There to Experience?
There are a plethora of ways to enjoy the City of Angels. If you need a hand, the #StartYourComeback website boasts an array of themed three-day packages. Are you a sucker for the old-fashioned? Then “3 Days of Vintage L.A.,” rife with drive-in theatres and nostalgic eateries, is right up your alley. If you’re a thrill-seeker, consider “3 Days of Action and Adventure,” complete with indoor skydiving and aqua surfing. Whether you’re travelling on a budget or looking to live in the lap of luxury, they’ve got you covered. Of course, you’re not limited to pre-determined itineraries; if you prefer, they can simply inspire a trip of your own design. The world is your oyster.

Participation couldn’t be simpler; all you need to do is hop on a plane, and let L.A. dazzle you. Everything from hotel bookings to visitor information can be found on the #StartYourComeback site.
