LA Attractions

la attractionsThis section is where you will find the best areas to visit in Los Angeles and Hollywood. These are the places to go for good shopping, fun restaurants and eateries, interesting people-watching, and great outdoor and indoor distraction. You’ll even see some of these attractions if you take one of the many sightseeing tours of Los Angeles. For others you’ll need to go further away from the main tourist areas.

We pointed out some of our favorite shops and businesses in each place, and included any key parking or travel information you might need to get around. So pick your destination and get going. (Note: this section is still growing, more attractions to be added soon!)
