Santa Monica is a good place to go when you're looking for a quick getaway. Plenty of things to do so no trip will be the same unless you want it to be.

Cool modern architecture, beautiful weather and homes. There are lots of options in terms of activities from dining to gyms but they tend to be chains which is why I give the area 4 stars

Considered by some as an elite place to work, Century City is a cluster of high rise office buildings and one mall, located next to Twentieth Century Fox studios. It lacks good freeway access, parking costs are atrocious and for some reason I always get disoriented when exiting their underground parking garages.

LA...the land of movie stars, the Lakers, horrible traffic 24/7, smoggy weather, plastic surgery, and amazing food! I lived in LA for the last six years, and it has been great. Every part of the city has something interesting to see and do, whether it's high-end shopping in Rodeo Drive (well, Beverly Hills, but it's pretty much LA), a concert ...

You'll feel a little out of place, a la 'Pretty Woman.' This city and famous zip code 90210 is home to many celebrities and affluent people. Great place for high end shopping and people watching.

People from Europe generally dislike the fact that you can't get anywhere in the US without driving. In Manhattan beach you can walk and cycle around somewhere which has a community feel. There are good bars, restaurants and as the name suggests a fantastic beach. If you are a fan of volleyball this is also the place to come to ...

No doubt, it's a gorgeous stretch of coastline along PCH (Pacific Coast Highway) heading north from Santa Monica to Ventura County. But there's not much to do or see in Malibu itself exactly, which isn't so much a town as a spread-out numbers of places along Hwy 1. Go look for celebrities in the strip malls, take a tour of ...

One of the more pleasant neighborhoods in LA. A glorified series of strip malls but with extra greenery and style. The heart and soul of LA's gay community.

Born in Santa Monica in 1954 and lived here until I was 20 years old and could not imagine a better place to grow up. Very small, friendly town where all the store people knew you by name and no one ever was a stranger. Don't know if it still has that quality now, but was the best place for ...

One of my favorite beaches in SoCal! Beautiful, clean beach with a fun pier and good dining options nearby. If you want a nice place to stay, I'd recommend the Beach House Hotel.

Torrance is a hidden gem in Los Angeles' South Bay and a great way to maximize your travel dollar. Incredible weather, stunning beaches, great shopping, family friendly, quaint museums, picturesque scenery and very close to Southern California's major attractions. There are a wide range of hotel accommodations - from budget to deluxe, and within proximity to the gorgeous stretch of ...

Glendale remind me a lot like Pasadena, but smaller and little nicer. It doesn't had the huge sport stadium like the rose bowl or popular school like PCC or Cal Tech. But Glendale is kinda seat in between between east and west urban community in L.A. Downtown is more like a working area and not something you want to bring ...

I grew up in Gardena and I must say that although it is not the largest or most popular city in the South Bay, it definitely has a lot of delicious food joints. Every time I visit, I try to buy all my favorite foods before leaving back to West LA. My favorite taco truck in Gardena is El Antojito. ...

Visited here mostly for work but liked the location being in the Santa Monica Bay area. Part of the greater Los Angles area and is easy to get to.
