If You Only Have Three Days in L.A.
Three days in Los Angeles is just enough time to see all sides of this sprawling city, especially if you plan your days geographically. A hike is a great way to start the day before exploring the boutique shopping and dining of Los Angeles' east side. A cultural day of museums, galleries and landmarks will highlight the city's center. Wandering the beach, boardwalk and bustling streets of the west side will fill day three.

Friday Night Jazz at LACMA

Large arrow left

On Friday nights the Los Angeles County Museum of Art (LACMA) hosts live jazz from April to November each year. Jazz at LACMA has run for more than 20 years, and many L.A. residents consider it a must-do in the area. More than 42,000 people attend the free event each year, where artists like Wayne Shorter, Billy Childs, the Cannonball-Coltrane Project, and Ernie Watts have showcased their talents.

After the show, I recommend heading over to Rays for Mediterranean-inspired dishes. Located on LACMA’s campus, Ray’s menu is constantly shifting to take advantage of seasonal fare and new ideas. Their crispy pig ears are one of my favorite dishes.
