    From here you'll encounter amazing views of Downtown LA and there is also the perfect opportunity to take a photo near the Hollywood sign. Be sure to take your time and enjoy the observatory; it's really interesting!

    California Science Center

    51 reviews

    This is a great place to take the kids. They have a blast you actually learn a little something too. There are lots of hands on exhibits. There is also a couple of fast food restaurants if you get hungry because you can spend all day there easily.

    The Getty Center

    152 reviews

    Great views over Los Angeles and the pacific ocean. Amazing architecture, great exhibits, and wonderful gardens. Check out their concerts. And another nice thing: you only pay for parking, the rest is free.

    The Grove

    124 reviews

    I genuinely like this mall as it's very clean and well maintained. As some other yelpers mentioned, it does have that Disneyland feel to it, which likely contributes to the overall charm and appeal. Complete with a wide array of shops including but not limited to Barnes & Noble, Nordstroms, and Apple, this outdoor mall has something for everyone. Now ...

    La Brea Tar Pits

    47 reviews

    This is one of my all time favorite museums. I love natural history. Learning about the creatures from the tar pits is awesome to me. I have taken my daughter here as well and she really liked it too!!! I plan on going back every year or two for her to check it out. They have a great link to ...

    So I have been at this place to see concerts, disney on ice, the kings, the lakers, USC, and something else once... Its a great place to enjoy an event. It doesnt matter if you are wearing an oxygen mask becuase the altitude is so high... or you are down low looking up at this huge cavernous enclosure that appears ...

    Los Angeles County Museum of Art (LACMA)

    94 reviews

    Fantastic. From the special exhibits, to the outdoor art including the "Levitated Mass", the children's art area, and the central courtyard. All great.

    Dodger Stadium

    59 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.

    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 ...

    Hollywood Sign

    98 reviews

    So I have done a quick look at all of the Hollywood Sign hiking trails and it looks like most of you did the Hollyridge Trail... Consequently I think you just like the odor of the horsies... However I made the trek a different way, which was longer, only partially on the super wide paved service roads and sometimes charging ...

    Olvera Street

    35 reviews

    The origins of LA began right here with the small cathedral and Olvera street which is street with Mexican restaurants with great Margaritas. Also mariachi bands, Horchatas and trinkets. Cross the street to the beautiful Union Station which is used for film sets - it's beautifully preserved with original art deco furniture and fixtures.

    Griffith Park

    50 reviews

    A tour of Griffith Park in the hills above Los Angeles is especially exciting when done on horseback. This is a great stop for animal-lovers on a tour of California's coast.

    Grand Central Market

    26 reviews

    DownTown LA foodie paradise!!!! My favorite place to lunch on weekends!!! There are two ways to enter so you could come from either side. It's also walking distance to grand park if you want to check that place out...they sometimes have some sort of festivals during the summer or near Christmas. The only downside is that the bathroom costs money ...

    The Last Bookstore

    12 reviews

    Gonna try to make this review short: Hidden precious gem located in LA, walking distance to syrup dessert (yum) and Exchange LA. A cool place to explore if you want a taste of LA, love artsy interior design or if you're a book lover. Don't forget to go upstairs, it's my favorite part of the store! Try to show up ...

    Natural History Museum of Los Angeles County

    27 reviews

    In my opinion, the weakest and least interesting of the museums in Exposition Park although at times its special, traveling exhibits make a trip worthwhile and its permanent "Becoming LA" exhibit makes any trip worthwhile.

    Echo Park

    11 reviews

    Peaceful park with a great view of LA! I finally checked this place out during the hidden cash craze. My boyfriend and I had some time to kill so we drove to Echo park when the famous hiddencash twitter hinted where he's going to hide some money. The park is clean and I really loved walking around it. Parking was ...
