You’re In Los Angeles? Here’s What To Do.
Ok, so you’re trying to figure out what to do in Los Angeles and don’t know where to start your adventures. Well, we don’t have ALL the answers but the information below is a great start, middle and end so you can leave the city satisfied and wanting more!
- I like Hermosa and Manhattan, but Malibu is the most scenic. Take a drive up the PCH.
- Santa Monica is cool but touristy around the promenade.
- Venice is great for people watching and buying souvenirs but don’t go swimming here.
- Sushi (strip malls usually have the best for some reason)
- Spot called Nabeya, Downtown, that we really like.
- Roscoe’s Chicken and Waffles (various locations but Pico is the hood one that we prefer)
- Sprinkles Cupcake ATM in Beverley Hills
- Grand Central Market for a lot of great, different options (Downtown)
- Comfort LA for Soul Food (Downtown – in the hood)
- Cronuts! They’re sold in a few places around LA. Just use Google to find the nearest. We really like the ones at LA Cafe in Downtown.
- Drive up into the Hollywood Hills (Mulholland drive is your best bet)
- Hollywood Blvd, but only for about an hour (pictures, Walk of Fame, Wax Museum, etc)
- The Edison
- Breakroom 86
- The Association (or The Continental)
- Lock & Key
- The Parlour
(good, during the day, to walk through)
- The Townhouse (with a REAL speakeasy in the basement called The Del Monte) – awesome.
- 3rd Street Promenade
- Can be touristy, but a lot of stuff going on (shopping, food, amusement park and cool boardwalk)
- Main St
- Shopping and bar-hopping (good, walk-able strip)
- Cole’s French Dip
- Bottega Louie
- Grand Central Market
- some of the best ethnic food in the city
- LA Cafe
- Get the LOBSTER GRILLED CHEESE!
- Fogo De Chao
- if you’re able/willing to spend $$$
- KindKream Ice Cream
Los Feliz Blvd
This is what we think of when we imagine the non-beach LA. Hollywood is worth stopping through, but it’s pretty bland and dirty – some cool clubs and themed restaurants. WeHo is where the gay community thrives and, whether you’re gay or not, it’s a cool area with some really laid back and cool strips (Fairfax, 3rd St, Melrose, La Brea, Robertson Blvd) for shopping and eating.
Fairfax and Melrose is chill, real “LA”
Outdoor mall, Farmers market is the best thing here
- expensive but cool to see
- huge mall, good one-stop shop
