    Santa Monica Pier

    207 reviews

    The Santa Monica Pier is a fun place to visit with groups of all ages. There is something for everybody from the rides to the funnel cakes. This is more of a carnival setting on the beach, with plenty of boardwalk to enjoy when you are ready to explore the area further.

    The Getty Center

    155 reviews

    Admission to the Getty Center is free! The only thing you have to pay for is $15 parking. The parking structure has plenty of levels for parking so you just got to be patient and drive around in circles a few minutes. Once you get out of your car and head to the elevator, it takes you to the tram. ...

    Griffith Observatory

    157 reviews

    Set on the south side of Mount Hollywood is Griffith Observatory. The city views are picture perfect and you can find an incredible telescope and planetarium inside! You have to visit this destination. It is a staple in Los Angeles history. I liked to imagine sitting up at the observatory when LA was first being settled!

    Venice Beach

    176 reviews

    Always entertaining and whimsical, Venice can make you feel out of this world. Take a walk on the Boardwalk and you’ll see various street performers juggling, dancing, singing or haggling. Step away to the beach for some peace and quiet. You may even spot a few dolphins swimming very close to the shore.

    Hollywood Walk of Fame

    164 reviews

    That was the least expensive and the most fun I had in an afternoon in a long time. I spend hours on the walk and never saw it all. I want to go again.

    There is something about the bowl that brings out so much romance! my guy was fully prepped with goodies in his trader joe shoulder cooler, from 3 different types of cheese on top of crackers with salami for our meat eating friends to tomatoes and even nann bread with hummus! I brought 3 bottles of wine and finished 2 and ...

    The Grove

    125 reviews

    Minnesota is full of lies! The REAL Mall of America is nestled right in the heart of Los Angeles. The Grove, with its over-the-top opulence and unending maze of cashiers eager to take your money, is both LA and America condensed down into a single commercial real estate project. Mario Lopez films Extra here daily (Spoiler alert: He's tiny!), and ...

    Los Angeles County Museum of Art (LACMA)

    100 reviews

    LACMA is comprised of a series of large, expansive buildings and the art is spread out throughout. The museum is large but sometimes it feels like there's not enough art to take up all the space. On this visit I particularly enjoyed Metropolis II and think it's every little boy's dream come true. Levitated Mass is cool to see as ...

    Huntington Library Art Collections and Botanical Gardens

    88 reviews

    One of the best private library and garden. Huge garden that will take our hours to walk around, large collection of art works. This is more idea for older people but is also can be enjoyable for young one who like garden and art.

    Third Street Promenade

    91 reviews

    I could spend all day here. It has all the stores that you'll probably find at any other mall, but the stores seem bigger and not cramped, and you get to walk around in the fresh air on the open streets. Also, there's so many more restaurants and stores (that aren't chain stores) that you could explore surrounding Third Street. ...

    The Getty Villa

    81 reviews

    This replica of a luscious Roman Villa, left to us by J Paul Getty, was modeled after ruins unearthed at Herculaneum. It houses world class Classical Art. And the grounds and building are beautiful. Admission to the museum is free. There is a fee for parking. An out-of-town ID will suffice for a reservation, I believe. The Getty Foundation wants ...

    Designed by Frank Gehry, Walt Disney Concert Hall has, along with the Hollywood Sign and the silhouette of City Hall, become a commonly recognized symbol of Los Angeles. Home of the Los Angeles Philharmonic, it is one of the world's most acoustically sophisticated concert halls. Whether visiting for a concert or simply for a tour, the building's perimeter should be ...

    Beautiful all the time. It is one of the more frequented beach spots but mornings are great times for a peaceful pleasant walk.

    Staples Center

    83 reviews

    I've been here three times. One for the Clippers game, second for Kaskade (floor ticket!) and third for the Lakers game. The staff is fast and efficient. Security is good but they were super fast unlike other venues I've been to for a concert. The staples center is surrounded by so many convenient restaurants and bars. If you're not a ...

    Grauman's Chinese Theatre

    80 reviews

    This is as touristy as touristy gets! I liked the theatre for what it is a historical part of Hollywood. What I didn't like was the cheese factor. There are imitation Marilyn Monroes and Elvis Presley's everywhere along with any other character you can think of. It was all too overwhelming.

    Runyon Canyon is one of the most poplar hikes in the LA Area. A lot of people bring their dogs. Its a great place to get some exercise while taking in the great views of Hollywood/Los Angeles. The hiking trails can get quite busy. There are certain areas where dogs are required to be on leash and others were they ...

    Aquarium of the Pacific

    59 reviews

    I grew up going to Sea World all the time, but I must say that the Aquarium of the Pacific rivals it, despite being quite smaller and not having orcas. The rainbow lorikeet forest was especially memorable and I have a few pictures of birds resting on my hands. You can't get that kind of experience at Sea World! Definitely ...

    Venice Canals

    64 reviews

    Venice's original 16 miles of canals have been reduced to an affluent grid bounded by South Venice Boulevard and Ocean Avenue, 28th Avenue and Pacific Avenue. When you become bored with the Boardwalk, a trip to the canals will be soothing.
