What to See


2800 E. Observatory Rd., LA

Snake up the mountains from the Los Feliz neighborhood into Griffith Park to the recently-refurbished observatory. Enjoy the sweeping views of the Hollywood sign, downtown LA and, on clear days, glimpses of the ocean.


From the 405 to the 101

This scenic street stretches from the 405 to the 101, winding from the Santa Monica Mountains down to the Topanga National Park.


4639 Hollywood Blvd., Hollywood

Vintage Playboys, water from a glass cooler and that unmistakable barber shop smell instantly transport you into the 1950s at this classic chop shop. The $17 price may be 2009, but is still very much a bargain.


2000 N Fuller, LA

LA may not be a walking city, but with so much natural beauty surrounding it, hiking in Hollywood's Runyon Canyon offers an easy way to soak up some sun, a little fresh air and possibly a few sweaty celebrities jogging the trails.

The Beach

The sandy coastal towns of Venice Beach, Manhattan Beach, Hermosa Beach and Redondo Beach all have one very important thing in common.


5905 Wilshire Blvd., LA

Chris Burden's ghostly collection of 202 reclaimed cast iron street lamps was installed in early 2008 on permanent exhibition at the Los Angeles County Museum of Art. And as a bonus, you're just a block from the La Brea tar pits.

Then & Now

The Griffith Observatory played a key role in James Dean's 1955 film, "Rebel Without a Cause."
