17 Griffith Observatory

If the weather is kind and has blown away some of the smog you get to look down on much of LA. The night views are also well worth seeing. If you get there early enough you can park close to the observatory.

If you don’t beat the rush you will have to climb someway up the hill. Despite the line, you should consider a visit to the planetarium. Check out the exhibits and maybe see a planet or two if you go at night.

18 California Science Center

The California Science Center is the West Coast's largest hands-on science center. There are other museums located nearby but you could easily spend the day at the CSC. One other attraction of note, admission is free. This is one of those things you do without great expectations but leave feeling pleased with yourself for going. Enjoy.

The California Science Center is open daily from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. except for Thanksgiving, Christmas and New Year's Day. Admission to the IMAX Theater isn't free. It is open daily. Call 213-744-7400 for show information or use the link below.

19 Cathedral of Our Lady of the Angels

Beyond its religious significance, if one can say that, the church contains a number of ‘points of interest’. The large woven tapestries, the 85 foot high pipe organ and the even harder to miss are the bronze doors at the entrance.

You should also look out for the shrine to the Virgin of Guadalupe, the alabaster and impressive old altar retablo. Perhaps the most moving is the realistic tortured crucifix. The metal sculpture of Jesus’ body depicts the torture Jesus endured for his flock.

20 Westwood Memorial Park

The stellar Westwood Memorial Park lacks a bit of life as you would expect. There are benches and areas to sit and perhaps consider that it’s not about the journey but the number of people who remember you (?)
