Great place to lounge and relax. A mix of foodie heaven and some tourist traps. I hate the crowds during summer and Christmas season. I use to shop a lot on 3rd Street when I worked nearby. Then I explored the city more when I was always there on weekends.

Greater LA is one of the most diverse places in the world - geographically, culturally, artistically, socially & more LA offers everything & anything you can find anywhere on Earth. You will need to look & travel to find many things but if it exists on Earth someone has it or is doing it in LA! As a tourist this ...

Upscale beachfront living. This city has a lot to offer the average Joe or the "I have a car you can not pronounce because i'm so rich" guy. Large variety of late night spots to dance and drink and the beach is always full of Volleyball and sun tanning beauties.

Home to Disneyland and Wondercon, and some of the best weather, who doesn't like to visit Anaheim! A great place to visit with the family, there's fun for everyone! And of course, the area is full of delicious restaurants to dine at. Take a trip here!

I know Long Beach's Beach (near 2nd street) is not as famous as Newport or Laguna, but that's the reason I like coming here!!! If you want a beach that you can go to to relax, sleep, read or simply enjoy a beautiful day without screaming kids or people around you; this place is for you!!! I came here because ...

I love Venice. Cool vibes, surf, stretches of gorgeous beach, bars & shops. The boardwalk is sure to amaze you, performers & weirdness that makes it so fantastic!

Fullerton has really grown into an awesome place to hang out both in daytime and at night particularly in the Downtown Fullerton area or DTF for short. As a kid, my family would frequent the Old Spaghetti Factory here and sit in the cable car inside the restaurant to eat. So much fun! Nowadays, the more notable places are the ...

I've lived in Buena Park for a VERY LONG TIME now and it's great to see this small city grow and change. Some attractions worth noting here: Knott's Berry Farm - Their annual pass is MUCH cheaper than Disneyland and there are no blockout dates. However, it's not as magical of course. But they do have more roller coasters! Knott's ...

This is a pretty well run city with some great businesses. I have spent a lot of time here as I have lived next to it and also worked there. Overall it is a place worth going to. Its not the best nor the worst though. The streets are usually clean and in good repair. They have some key spots ...

Hermosa Beach is in its own world - people leave their doors unlocked, barbecues on rooftops overlooking the ocean are standard weekday events, and the community is small enough that everyone seems to know everyone. Bikes are the main form of transportation (good luck finding a parking spot for your car), so renting one for the day is definitely a ...

Nice area on LA close to UCLA. Definitely a nicer pay off the city, less ghetto, and offers a slew of God restaurants and night activities for the student population.

Stayed here for one night with a group of girl friends. I think it's a nice relaxing place but I think a day was good enough for me. Best for family or couple trip. They have ghost tours (for kids), segway tour (was the best), hiking, zip lining, karaoke, etc. Fact1: the buffalo meat they serve there is imported Fact2: ...

Beautiful view, but that's about it. There's a beach and there's sea, but not a lot else. Still, nice for chilling in the sun or going for a swim. I wonder if it's sunny every day of the year here??

West LA is a sprawling grid of urban blocks, with the UCLA campus at the hub of many Big Blue Bus services that connect to Santa Monica. If you've got money to spend, the cafes, boutiques and high-end restaurants here will appeal. If you're on a budget, check out the student haunts closer to campus.

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.

I think this city is one of the best mixes of old and new. I also love how the Metro cuts across the city for convenient access to DTLA and other parts of L.A. Great food, great shopping and many cute nooks all throughout!

Costa Mesa is very clean and well landscaped. A mixture of office parks and residential but a lot of business! There is a great shopping mall and just about every major store and restaurant you could imagine. Very accessible from the freeway!
