What to do in Los Angeles?
1 The Getty
Getty Center museum is world-class and it is free. Fabulous art
collections, wide ranging exhibits, stunning modern white architecture,
great views, gorgeous gardens, grand sculptures and even free tours.

arts, and European and American photographs.
has 'ran out of time' stamped all over it so arrive early and don't
plan to leave at least until after lunch - which you can bring with
you if you wish. The museum boasts a wide selection of art from
different periods and genres.
Worthwhile doing some research before you arrive so you can decide
on what to see first. Alternatively a tour might help. The attractions
are almost as numerous as the number of people milling about. Queuing
should be mostly about food (another reason to bring your own).

stars baby - the stars (The Hollywood Walk Of Fame)
fallen star? There are a few but then again, too few to mention
One look down at the sidewalk at these world famous gold/bronze
stars and there is no mistaking where you are. In some ways this
has to be the world's greatest landmark - being so close to the
ground. The bronze-inlaid stars commemorate some of the most famous
individuals on the planet. From The Beatles to the LAPD. Like an
over enthusiastic teacher, the Walk of Fame gives a star to everybody
who was somebody sometime. You can't go past Mae West, Dorothy Dandridge,
Anna Mae Wong and Dolores Del Rio so start off with the girls and
are almost as many Hollywood stars in the pavement as there are
in the Milky Way - not even close of course but it is a hike. They
don't call Hollywood the star factory for nothing. You'll find most
of the Supernovas between La Brea to Vine.
are added frequently, so check out the Chamber of Commerce website
(next page) to see if you can catch one of the actual ceremonies
and witness a new star being stepped on.

watching people, people talking, people hanging out and people selling
stuff. Its friendly, funny perhaps or at least interesting. It's
its own place. Odd and entertaining. People, if you are people,
if you like people, you’ll like the Venice Beach Boardwalk.
Locals run (early) or stroll (late is good). Sun (hopefully), waves
(probably) and interesting personalities (almost certainly). Snacks
,coffee but most importantly the people man! You kind of have to
go to know. Venice is funky, gritty but most of all fun. Go there.
Muscle Beach is an outdoor gym area on Venice Beach. Being first
of its kind Muscle Beach is a beefy Venice Beach attraction. Fully
restored and refurbished the gym includes chin bars, parallel bars,
rings, small jungle gyms for children and a padded safe gymnastics
area for tumbling. Kirk Douglas, Clark Gable, Tyrone Power, Jayne
Mansfield, Jane Russell, and Mae West are but a few of the celebrities
that have worked out on Muscle Beach. You'll find the gym just south
of the volleyballs courts.
