The Getty Museum | A Must-Do in LA
The view, the art, the tram ride up - a day at LA's mountain-top Getty Museum is a must. Free iPod touch guides lead you through gallery upon gallery and through the magnificent gardens, and you might learn a thing or two if you can pry it out of your child's hands. You'll see Monet, Renoir, Cezanne, Van Gogh - the same pieces you may or may not have posted across your dorm room at college in an attempt to seem cultured. Just saying.
You really don't get views better than this - and even better, aside from the parking *it's free*! Check out the tours and children's programs on offer.
