Drive down Sunset Boulevard around 9 or 10pm, and do your shopping...


Cheers,

If I remember right, if you want to get shot (and killed), you can just stay where you are and run from the police.

There's actually a lot to do in LA. Shopping (from the cheapest possibilities to - let's say your budget is unlimited - the famous Rodeo Drive in Beverly Hills), going to the movies (which you can do anywhere in the world), cruising the beaches in Santa Monica (the pier is very commercialized, but lovely) etc. etc.

If you really get a lot of time, go sightseeing, if you really have A LOOOOOOOOOOT of time, hire a car and go sightseeing on one of the freeways.

Yeah, like beautiful Crapchester, New York  sarcastic 

In Los Angeles, there is tons to do. If you want the beach and relaxation, head up Pacific Coast Highway (CA 1) from Santa Monica up to Malibu and pick a spot in the sand. If you want shopping without pretense and with an amazing vibe, head to the Third Street Promenade in Santa Monica. For night life, nothing beats the Sunset Strip (Sunset Blvd. from the Beverly Hills/West Hollywood Border to La Brea Blvd.). The original Disneyland is in Anaheim, which is reachable by train from Union Station if you don't have car access. Also, GQ just named Los Angeles the United States best food city, and it is true. You can find amazing food anywhere in the city and not have to pay much if you want.

Dude, live a little.

Roll down to Pinks for a chili dog, then hop in the car for a quick trip out to Griffith Park, you can hit the zoo or the train exhibits.

Roll thru the wax museum in Hollywood, the La Brea Tar Pits, and go see a horse race.

There is a ton of history, things like Graumans Chinese Theatre and the Getty Museum. The freaks in Hollywood and/or Venice can keep you busy for a week.

Of course a trite little frenchman would be out of their depth in LA, so keep your windows rolled up.

Go to Santa Monica, hire a bike then cycle along the pavement on the beach (you can go for miles and it's mostly flat). I've done it a few times and it's cool. It also goes undr the flightpath for LAX which you may be interested in if you're an a.netter. There's an abandoned road you can cycle up and get a good view of the airport.

Depends, what do you like to do? You can do anything here in the LA area, even get shot at if you desire.

UTA_flyinghigh:
What is your thing?
Sunset Bl. at night is the place to go and hob-knob with wannabe celebrities full of places with trendy clubs with high cover charges and women with more plastic in them than a Honda Civic.
Santa Monica Bl. at night is where you go to pick up transvestites.
Venice/Santa Monica Beach is cool place to hang out in the day time. Lots of cool shops, random performers and eccentric types.
Melrose is a decent place to hang out in the daytime with a few neat shops.
Check out Amoeba Records on Vine Street. It has to be the coolest record store in Southern California.  Cool

Other than that, try hooking up with Matt D and maybe he'll show you his big 10 inch

Pay attention allstar. I never pimp Crapchester likes its some marvelous city, some great tourist destination or anything like that. If you want a garbage Plate - come here. If you want a big city...go somewhere else. But I guess you are too busy rolling your eyes to actually pay attention to details...

Say no more UTA_flyinghigh.
It's a gorgeous, beautiful, night life city. Sunset blvd, Rodeo drive, Berverly hills, West Hollywood, Santa Monica, Malibu...oh my my my.

Don't forget to check out in&out burger place nearby LAX.

I had relative lived in Santa Monica and friends are lived in West Hollywood. I spent more time on West Hollywood than with my relative in Santa Monica.

Enjoy and flying high.

Hey, just have to stand up for my hometown, the most greatest city in the world.

BTW, instead of In N Out, you should try The Proud Bird on Aviation Blvd. The food is really good, if a bit pricey, and the views of the 25s are amazing

When are you visiting L.A.?

If your there in Novemeber, check out the Brewery Art Colony downtown Los Angeles.
I was there for there spring exhibit and it was amazing. Lot's of eclectic art work, performers, food and beer.

When I lived in L.A., I'd always take out-of-towners to El Cid in Silverlake:

Built in 1890 as Hollywood's first soundstage, El Cid went on to host flamenco shows for a crowd sauced on homemade sangria. Since then, it's housed live DJs, alternative bands and fashion shows.

With multiple patios and a kitschy-cool interior, El Cid is a sprawling restaurant and club-cum-playground situated on a hipster-clogged stretch of Sunset Boulevard in Silver Lake. On weekends, the flamenco floor show often sells out; rock bands occasionally take the stage as well. Sunday brunchers are treated to the jazz stylings of Jerri & Friends, a band fronted by one of the oldest female drummers on earth. It's a trip.


4212 Sunset Blvd. (I'm not too sure how current the review is of it above, though, so check for current attractions.)

Well LA is a pretty damn big area, and has lots to see and do-ranging from the cheesy Hollywood tours to Disneyland to museums to restaurants to sterile suburbia, not to mention easy access to beaches, mountains, deserts, and farmland. Maybe if you gave us an idea of what you had in mind-we could narrow it down for you. Depending on what it is, maybe I can spend a day and show you around-in my Cobra Convertible of course.
