    Indeed, the happiest place on earth. I love Disneyland!!! I never get tired of going here over and over again. One of the cleanest theme park I have ever been to. Great for kids and adults. I love how huge and spacious this place is. I also love the food which is pricey but well worth it. Thinking about those ...

    The Getty Center

    Excellent museum housing European art from many different eras. Lots of highlights, many are little known gems. The architecture is amazing as well as the lush gardens. The museum itself is free including the excellent multimedia iPod guides and any walking tours they offer. The terrace cafe offers fresh salads and sandwiches with a gorgeous view. Parking is $15 but ...

    Griffith Observatory

    155 reviews

    I came up here on a hot summer day with my roommate a while back. I don't know if I would be able to navigate the streets to get myself there, but luckily she's a pro at driving :P Lots of parking all along the streets and in a parking lot, but they do fill up fast! A lot of ...

    Venice Beach

    174 reviews

    OK, so as someone who lived in Santa Monica for 5 1/2 years, I generally tried to avoid the Venice Boardwalk in my day to day life. But when people came from out of town, this is a must see destination. It is crowded with people - rollerskating electric guitar players, people in American Flag speedos with boa constrictors around ...

    Hollywood Walk of Fame

    163 reviews

    I've lived near LA my whole life and have never made a trip just to see the walk of fame. It's a good stop if you're in the area or plan to go to any clubs or lounges while you're there but nothing too spectacular. Parking can be scary in Hollywood I recommend reserving a spot in advance here if ...

    great venue, if you are going make sure to bring your own blanket and bring a bottle of wine it can get pretty pricey there

    The Grove

    124 reviews

    As outdoor malls go this has a decent selection of stores, however the people it attracts is just the pits. I believe Dante Aligheri mentioned this as the hidden tenth ring of hell in his special Author's edition of The Divine Comedy.

    Downtown Disney

    109 reviews

    Downtown Disney is a fun place to stop for a little bit of "Disney" atmosphere without having to pay for the parks. There is an extensive Disneyland store with pretty much all the same items as inside the parks. You can also get some good gumbo or clam chowder in a bread bowl out here too. There's also an ESPN ...

    Of course, must see while in Los Angeles, though I have not been very impressed with the art exhibits.

    Angel Stadium of Anaheim

    93 reviews

    They did a very good job revamping this stadium many years back. My favorite section of the stadium is the budweiser pavilion. During events the pavilion is always packed! It's like going to a local bar but you can watch a live game/concert and drink! There is also a family fun section which opens up on Sundays during the baseball ...

    Hollywood Sign

    100 reviews

    Here are some good places from which to view and photograph the sign: 1. The fourth level of the Hollywood & Highland Center; 2. Beachwood Drive off Franklin Avenue. A drive up Beachwood will provide a number of photo opportunities. If you travel to the end of Beachwood there is a parking area and the starting point for hiking trails ...

    Third Street Promenade

    91 reviews

    This is what you get when you combine Socal weather & European style city centre. While it's filled with the usual suspects, it's still a thoroughly enjoyable stroll.

    The Getty Villa

    81 reviews

    Perfect companion to the Getty Center (a 30 minute drive away), the villa offers a wide variety of Greek and Roman artifacts and art. The multimedia iPod guide as well as walking tours are free and offer deeper insight into the collection. What I personally found fascinating was how many of the sculptures had been "restored" in the 18th century, ...

    Santa Monica State Beach

    85 reviews

    One of LA's best beaches! The sand is soft and the beach is broad. You can surf in a couple of spots - south of the pier is best (come early before its blown out). There are playgrounds here for kids, and while you are not super far from the town of santa monica, its far enough that you should ...

    Walt Disney Concert Hall

    78 reviews

    Came here to watch the Philharmonic play and to watch an Easter show. The acoustics of the room really help make the music more dynamic and beautiful. I love the structure of the concert hall and how it looks so unique. The seats are very comfortable, the hall is huge, but you're not at a disadvantage if you sit at ...

    Staples Center

    82 reviews

    Home of the Lakers!! Oh and also of the Clippers, Kings and Sparks. I've been here on a few occasion and each time I've had a blast. Parking, well unless you have Staples Center parking, you're on your own to find a spot. But there are a lot of places to park around Staples Center. It just depends much you ...

    Knott's Berry Farm

    70 reviews

    Knott's Berry Farm itself is a very entertaining venue, one I would recommend to tourists and locals alike. The rides are thrilling, the lines aren't ridiculously long, and it's close to my mom's house, so I like it a lot. However, it is lacking in a lot o areas: not enough trees (shade), no shows really, and it's hard to ...
