Thanks for all the suggestions! Keep them coming if you have more.
Looks like I’ll have to make sure to check out venice beach. A few other spots sound pretty cool too. My bud is a fan of different beers like me so we might have to check that Naja’s place out. The in’and out seems interesting too, never heard of that.
I looked and found a few things that looked interesting, wondering if you have any opinions on them or have went to them before:
- hollywood museum
- hollywood wax museum
- warner bros tour
- tar pits
- various bus-type tours of L.A.[/quote]
Boring, boring, boring, boring. The Hollywood Wax Museum must have the best advertising agency in the world working for them if they can get you to think that it actually might be interesting. The only thing on that list that might be worth checking out if you have time would be the tar pits. But only for about 10 seconds because seriously, how interesting can a stagnant lake of tar be?
Also, if you’re gonna be up in Malibu area - go to Neptune’s Net. Its where they filmed part of The Fast and the Furious (where Vin Diesel and the white dude are eating at that restaurant thats right on the water). Its tons of good fried fish foods.
And if you’re down in Irvine and you’re the shopping type, check out the South Coast Plaza. The Grove and Rodeo Drive are good suggestions too if you like dropping cashish.
And as far as crime and earthquakes? I think its funny how everyone around the country that don’t live in LA like to rip on it, “ohhh man, I’m so glad I don’t live in LA! Who would want all that crime??? - you’d best not walk out of your front door without a bulletproof vest lest you get hit by some stray bullets from a driveby shooting. And the earthquakes! Oh God the earthquakes! I hear theres an earthquake there everyday. At least a 5 on the richter scale every time. And don’t even get me started on the landslides and forest fires! You’d best stay here in Akron, Ohio instead of going to that big city where you’re bound to either get shot, taken away by a landslide, burn in a forest fire, or get killed in an earthquake.”
I hope you’re not serious when you say you’re worried about earthquakes for the week you’re out here. You probably have more of a chance getting in a car accident back home in Michigan than finding yourself in an earthquake in LA.
