    Question Things to do in LA after Weekend 1...

    Hi Guys,

    A friend and I will be flying over from London for Weekend 1 and are planning on spending 3 days in the LA area before heading to Vegas.

    Any recommendations on sites to see, restaurants to eat at, clubs to party at? Would like to see the real side of town if possible, not interested in Beverly Hills/Hollywood touristy things.

    Thanks guys

    The Getty Museum is a must, worth the effort it takes to get there.

    A lot of coachella artists will be playing at goldenvouce venues around LA so if there's any acts you miss you can check out some of these shows. And go to Disneyland, Laker or Clipper game, go see a play in Hollywood etc.

    what about beaches after weekend 1. It seems the air temp is to cold for swimming that time of year along the coast?

    Definitely the Getty.

    Library Alehouse in Santa Monica for numerous beverages.

    Also, Same for swimming. Santa Monica is good.

    Venice Beach too

    Whiskey Sour

    2 oz blended whiskey
    Juice of 1/2 lemon
    1/2 tsp powdered sugar
    1 cherry
    1/2 slice lemon

    Shake blended whiskey, juice of lemon, and powdered sugar with ice and strain into a whiskey sour glass. Decorate with the half-slice of lemon, top with the cherry, and serve.

    It's always a good idea to read previous posts before you post something.

    I second the LACMA suggestion.

    you can do the same we do every year: start the day at Joans on third, then beach, then Urth caffe, then Griffith, later Lakers / Clippers or Kings, or a club show
    cant wait for April goddamn

    Venice Beach for sure. Eat at one of the restaurants on the Hollywood strip, it may be pricy, but awesome food cuz crappy food doesn't last on the strip. The real side of LA is actually pretty ugly. Check out all the local venues to see what else may be playing...Palladium, etc..may be some cool up and comers..
    If you run out of stuff, hit up Magic Mountain!

    Hey Guys,

    Thanks for the suggestions and useful links. It looks like I have a lot of options.

    Are Laker/Clipers game tickets available on the night or best to pre-book?

    Hotel suggestions please!!!! -We still haven't sorted accommodation out and time is ticking!

    3-star min in a central location would be good. Help! :0)

    Oh and if you want to go to a Laker game you better get tickets now.

    You'll have much better luck finding Clipper tix, but still get those ASAP.
