36 Neptune’s Net, Malibu

You gotta eat. Go somewhere with a great beach vibe and interesting crowd.

"This place was fun! For a first timer (like I was) I'd recommend the Neptune's Sampler--shrimp, scallops, clams, calamari, fish and crabcakes. You can try a bit of everything and decide what you like best. Make sure you're in the mood for fried food though!! It was $25 and could easily feed 3 (or two very very hungry people, though my boyfriend and I couldn't finish it and we were over-stuffed).

Since I was camping in the area, I ate here twice in two days. Round 2 was a bowl of the clam chowder in a bread bowl. It was a fairly big bowl, overflowing with chowder, with plenty of clams. Yum!! I'm no clam chowder connoisseur, but I thought it was really good!

They have a seafood side of the restaurant where you can get fresh steamed seafood. I didn't realize this was here until I was leaving, but I'll be back to try it out. Prices over there were a little bit more, but it's not fried which is a bonus.

Don't forget to try their cocktail sauce too, it's awesome! And you can't beat the gorgeous views while driving here along the PCH...

good food + great drive + gorgeous beach = I'll be coming back!

Plus, you might even get lucky and eat your lunch next to Robert Downey Jr. like I did :)"

38 (23) Ripley's Believe it or not

Hollywood Blvd. 300 or so exhibits of the weird and imaginary. Its good / scary fun. Designed for fun for the young and young at heart. Numerous bodily insertions, the dark little hallway of medical horrors, the revolving chamber of stars, the cat who eats with a fork video all makes for a cheesy and unbelievable experience. This is what Ripley's is all about, believe it or not.

39 (24) Hollywood Guinness World of Records Museum

The Hollywood Guinness World of Records Museum aims to add meat, bone, blood sweat and probably a few tears to many record-breaking achievements. Perhaps of most interest are some of the more bizarre records although the why they did it is open to debate.

This is a fun, relaxed place to visit. If you enjoy facts of the "I-wish-I-didn't-know-that" variety you will have a ball. If you don't - stop reading now. Did you know a Stegosaurus has the smallest brain compared to the rest of its body? You will find plenty more where that came from at the Hollywood Guinness World of Records Museum.

40 (25) Hollywood Wax Museum

Hollywood Wax Museum

Wax celebrities are in some ways superior to the original. They tend not say anything stupid or look less than perfect and don't run away as much.

The Hollywood Wax Museum is located on Hollywood Boulevard along the Hollywood Walk of Fame. It is the only wax museum in the country devoted entirely to celebrity figures. No boring "whose that?" . Only the very recognizable and famous get waxed. Hollywood stars and television personalities. You will find them all here. Angelina Jolie, Johnny Depp, Gwenyth Paltrow, Kirsten Dunst, Marilyn Monroe, Charlie Chaplin, John Wayne, and Elvis Presley to name but a few. Picture yourself in the spotlight with Matthew McConaughey, Halle Berry, Judy Garland as Dorothy from the Wizard of Oz, and even the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles. Relive the spine tingles with the scariest and most memorable horror movie villains. Relive the thrills with blockbuster moments from the top 100 movies of all time.
