I’m in an LA state of mind.
I generally only get guide books for places that I have never been before. Such isn’t the case with Los Angeles. I was there with my family when I was around 3 years old. I know this because of the pictures of my mom, brother and I at Disneyland. But, other than a stop over at the airport, I haven’t been to Los Angeles in my adult life.
I’ve been looking through my Eyewitness Travel Guides: Top 10 Los Angeles book to find places that I want to see and things I want to do. Here are a few that I’ve picked out:
PLUS – all the things that my friends have told me to not miss out on. . .like driving around. What? Driving around? Yes, that actually does sound like a lot of fun to me, along with walking around exploring. . .seeing where the sidewalks take me. Specifically, it was suggested that I drive around the canyons.
Another suggestion was checking out the taco carts. Mmm…that sounds delicious to me. I definitely plan on scoping out the best vegan restaurants while there!
Going to the grunion run. This is something I’ve heard a lot about online and in movies.
Checking out an Art Walk in Downtown Los Angeles.
Late night driving.
Have you been to Los Angeles? What would you suggest I see and do?
What I really appreciate about the DK Eyewitness Travel guides is that they are full of colourful pictures to give me a sense of what I’ll actually be seeing. Not only that, I also love their spotlights on museums and galleries, where collections are are highlighted. Sometimes there are so many possible places to visit that I need to have a visual idea about what each place looks like and some of the works it contains. The small and pull-out maps available in the guidebook are really helpful, too—and much less conspicuous than full, giant maps that will tell everyone you’re a tourist.
