I live in Los Angeles 4 out of 7 days a week. If you are visiting for the first time it is best to stay in what we consider West LA. It is close to all of the sights as well as near the Beaches. If you don't mind public transportation (Buses or Trains) I recommend that method of transportation. They can be slow but traffic is horrific by car. Freeways were clearly an after thought. I am also on Facebook and will gladly chat with if you want more info or want to chat about your upcoming...
I would tend to agree with Nicki - many people that have been to LA tend to be disappointed initially - probably down to the fact that the city is so large and widely spread - you never really get to identify where things really are - but spending a bit more time, you then get to realise that there is quite a lot to it - a lot of character and soul that is just to be discovered
los Angeles in the summer - July /August any recommendations to eat in cool places or wine bars that are fun foody best to be mix of fine hip places good wine cellar
Visiting Los Angeles with my family this month, can you let me know if there are tips on getting a good deal on a cruise to Mexico. Thank you for any help you can give me.
You should buy an LAWeekly Reader at a news stand. It has ads and listings for everything of interest (movies, shows, music, theme parks, museums, etc.) Los Angeles is a pretty sprawling area. If you have a lot of time, you might want to use the public transportation. If you're going to be here for a short stay, you might want to rent a car, so that you can get around to more than one or two sights and attractions in one day, and be able to have a better sense of the area.
