Favorite LA Experiences
Collected by Benjamin Caro
The highlights of Los Angeles.
4800 Hollywood Blvd, Los Angeles, CA 90027, USA
One of my favorite parks in L.A. is a deceptively massive hill just east of Hollywood. After the climb, enjoy amazing views, a free art museum, and even a tour of the Hollyhock House, a fascinating structure designed by Frank Lloyd Wright right...
6000 Santa Monica Blvd, Los Angeles, CA 90038, USA
Hollywood Forever Cemetary was founded back in 1889. Since then, it's been home to some of Hollywood's greatest stars: Johnny Ramone, Cecil B. DeMille, Jayne Mansfield, Rudolph Valentino, Douglas Fairbanks, even Toto from the Wizard of Oz. But...
1697 Pacific Ave, Venice, CA 90291, USA
High Rooftop Lounge offers the most amazing view of Venice you'll ever see. With a vista that stretches up and down the coastline, the relaxed, breezy roof of Hotel Erwin is definitely the spot to watch the sun hit the horizon. Order cocktails or...
6300 Hetzler Rd, Culver City, CA 90232, USA
The mythology behind these stairs can only be understood after undertaking the challenge yourself. One hiker said he still sees these steps in his nightmares, and just after a few yards, you'll understand why. While the climb seems rather short,...
8300 Sunset Blvd, West Hollywood, CA 90069, USA
There are plenty of unreliable variables when staying at a hotel: service, comfort, cleanliness... There is one thing you can always rely on when staying at the Standard Hotel: the "Box Girl." When checking in, you'd be hard pressed not to notice...
642 Moulton Ave, Unit E21, Los Angeles, CA 90031, USA
35000 Pacific Coast Hwy, Malibu, CA 90265, USA
Have you ever wanted to camp in walking distance to a secluded beach, rife with wildlife like starfish, crabs and sea anemones? A 45-minute drive out of central LA yields this amazing experience. Leo Carillo has a very well maintained campsite,...
Malibu, CA 90265, USA
A long drive up Corral Canyon Road (your car gets a hike, too!) leads to an unveiling of rock formations weathered by centuries of ocean water. Both jagged cliff faces and smooth stone surfaces beckon hikers to explore. The walk is relatively...
7036 Mulholland Dr, Los Angeles, CA 90068, USA
While many tourists pull their cars into the big lot off of Mulholland Drive during the day, it's only at nighttime that locals visit this place. Even though the parking lot is closed, and the gates are shut, intrepid travelers will always be able...
5919 Franklin Ave, Los Angeles, CA 90028, USA
The Upright Citizens Brigade Theatre was the brainchild of Matt Besser, Amy Poehler, Ian Roberts, Matt Walsh, and others who starred in Comedy Central's sketch comedy Upright Citizens Brigade in the late '90s. The comedians expanded the idea into...
473 N Western Ave, Los Angeles, CA 90004, USA
Koreatown has no shortage of Korean BBQ; in fact, a daunting excess. There are places that specialize in pork belly, places with cuts of meat only a connoisseur would care to afford, delectable seafood, and ones known to include a tableside sea of...
515 W 7th St #200, Los Angeles, CA 90014, USA
Seven Grand, located at (where else?) 7th and Grand, exudes the warmth and wood of your uncle's hunting lodge. Specializing in hand-crafted whiskey cocktails, the bar boasts some expert mixologists all wearing vests (and perhaps a mustache or...
825 N La Brea Ave, Los Angeles, CA 90038, USA
On Sundays, for those who despise hangers, resident thrift shop/vintage store Jet Rag tosses their leftovers into the parking lot for the naked and hungry to pick through like pack of rabid style-conscious bargain-hunting dogs. There are no...
