    La Brea Tar Pits

    47 reviews

    Admittedly, revisiting the tar pits in my 20's proved disappointing next to my childhood memories. It is really just a big pit of tar with a large park and museum around it. However, the park is beautiful on a nice day and the history of the location makes it worth a visit. If you are traveling with kids or just ...

    Santa Monica Farmers' Market

    35 reviews

    I come here occasionally to buy oysters from Carlsbad aquafarms. They're about as fresh as you can get 'em and you can either have them shucked on the spot for immediate consumption or you can take them home and shuck them yourself, a great deal either way.

    Irvine Spectrum Center

    A well-planned outdoor mall that just keeps growing! You can pretty much find anything here, from movies, to comedy, to personal pizzas. Did I mention the parking is free? (except valet, of course)

    Little Tokyo

    38 reviews

    One of my foodie paradise destination. Great place to lounge around and enjoy the street performers going crazy on the shamisen (it's like a Japanese banjo... But not... Hope that makes sense). Parking is a hit on miss. You get your parking validated if you park in the little Tokyo mall and buy something at nijiya, Japanese supermarket. Or look ...

    This is where the locals shop boutiques. There are no chain stores on this street. You could spend the entire day here, with the number of shops and restaurants. Its also one block from the beach walk, so fun and sun in one day is possible here.
