    Staples Center

    80 reviews

    I don't know if the Staples Center really needs a review...Lakers...Kobe. Kobe...Lakers. Central location in downtown LA, and right across from it is the ESPN Zone.

    The Grove

    123 reviews

    It's a great outdoor shopping mall, but I personally find it more exciting for Mario Lopez's Extra! show taping. Passerby can be part of the show - just join the gathering crowd before a segment starts taping (or during, but you'll be at the very back) and get up close with the celebrity guests. I was 5 feet from Hilary ...

    Little Tokyo

    38 reviews

    This is such a fun area to explore in LA. If you love Japanese culture, food, products, or most importantly HELLO KITTY, this is a must-see if you're in the area. The stores are so much fun to check out, lots of Japanese characters clothing and toys, cute female clothing (can get pricey!) and very authentic food. Be careful what ...

    Greek Theatre

    29 reviews

    Get me to the Greek! More intimate than the Hollywood Bowl, I had a great time enjoying a show at the famous Greek Theatre. For parking, I utilized the prepaid off-site shuttle parking. For only $7 per vehicle, I parked at the Griffith Park Pony/Train rides. I had our printed receipt scanned & given a wristband, which enabled us to ...

    The Getty Villa

    80 reviews

    I can finally say I've been to both the Getty Center & the Getty Villa. When in Rome, do as the Romans do - enjoy life in sculptured gardens around a breathtaking pool, with exquisite sculptures & architecture surrounding you as if you befriended Augustus Caesar himself. The locale is perfect. Cool breezes from the Pacific flow by you as ...

Then you also have a fantastic cocktail menu. I stopped by yesterday and tried the n00b and the Wizard Mode. The n00b is delicious: vodka, lemon, honey, lemongrass, ...

    Dodger Stadium

    56 reviews

    With the McCourts gone Dodger Stadium is returning to its historic status as a class act. Friendly people, better (but yes, overpriced) food selections and a team that is fun to watch. Parking can be a pain but if you park at Union Station ($6.00 per day) and take the free shuttle to the ballpark, the parking hassle is gone.

    Sweet, sweet gallery space. My first time coming here yesterday to check out the Combo Attack- StreetFighter 25th Anniversary and wasn't expecting such a big gallery. Not sure if their A/C was broken though cause they only had fans running in the 110degree weather so it wasn't preettttyyy damn uncomfortable in there even with all the awesome artwork. I'm glad ...

    This is the origins of the City of Los Angeles. Drive or take the train from Pasadena to Union Station. Walk across the street and you are there. Walk a little further and you are in Chinatown.

    Opened in 1934, during the Great Depression, this is Los Angeles's original Farmers Market. It began when San Fernando Valley farmers, lacking middlemen for their produce, were given an opportunity to rent stall space on idle land in the Fairfax area in order to sell their produce directly to consumers. As part of a 1941 expansion and reconstruction project the ...

    University of Southern California

    Alright People... as a previous poster pointed out this is not the page for the old gray lady (coliseum) or the rose gardens or the musuems. Now on to the best Private University that I can discuss intimately. The current rankings: ARWU World 46th Forbes National 112th QS World 107th Times World 73rd USNWR National 23rd WM National 39th USC ...
