Los Angeles

Glitz and Glam rule this City of Angels

You’ve seen the movie, but nothing beats the real thing. The Hollywood Sign in the hills watches over Sunset Boulevard’s studios, Rodeo Drive’s designer shops, star wannabes on Hollywood Boulevard, and the boardwalk on distant Santa Monica beach. L.A. sprawls, so it’s a place to drive with the top down. In Hollywood, go up to Griffith Park where James Dean drove his car off the cliff in Rebel Without a Cause, then walk past the 1920s Grauman's Chinese Theatre along the (literally) star-studded Walk of Fame or drive up Mulholland Drive for full views of the city from the hills. Don’t neglect art – the world-class Getty Center overlooks LA from north of Santa Monica, the LA County Museum of Art is a standout on Wilshire Boulevard’s "Museum Row." Head down Santa Monica Boulevard to get to the beach. If you need more glitz with your sand, go north to Malibu (where the stars live); for tattoos, go south to flamboyant Venice Beach. Hotels conjure different eras – the Chateau Marmont’s early Hollywood grace, the Highland Gardens Hotel (where Janis Joplin died in 1970), or 21st-century boutique hotels like Santa Monica’s Viceroy or West Hollywood's Sofitel. If you need a break from stars, low-key hipster locals go for booze and brunch in unassuming Silver Lake, several miles east of Hollywood. Of course, that’s on TV now too.

  • They say you either love or hate L.A. - I say, if you visit with a local, you can learn to love what at first glance seems like a faceless urban sprawl. Let them take you to the cultural hot spots, the hidden neighborhoods, the art meccas, and the delicious Mexican food joints. Yes, in their car.

  • It was quite satisfying to get free VIP passes off of JoshuaEscandon.com because when I reached, I just walked past the endless crowd waiting to get in for their show. I got into the show for free, got parking right in front of the Laugh Factory – also for free and sat in great seats that were a part of the VIP privileges that I got. Once inside, the show started with people coming out of the walls even, to watch it. It began nicely, pulling us all into the mood and then slowly and steadily, Josh and Myo elevated the stage and kept moving us deeper into an act that was riddled with hilarious pieces that you couldn’t help but laugh at. You just know that they have something new up their sleeve yet again. Unlike other live comedy shows, they do not travel with the same routine in different places. Josh and Myo have a large number of fans who come in regularly, which makes it all the more important to ensure a unique act every time. Despite such pressure they manage to pull it off every week. I cannot imagine the amount of work that goes into their act every Friday. They also bring on the most amazing guests who have this knack of bringing us to our knees and begging them to stop, so that we can all breathe. I can tell you this that the show is a complete non-stop affair of fun.

  • LA is fantastic, if you like big. Drive from downtown towards the ocean in Santa Monica, and you will feel like visiting 10 cities in the span of a car ride. Go further on Highway 1 to briefly feel the freedom of California, and see what Baywatch and Malibu is all about, before you head back to the Hills via Mullholland. Watch 15 mio lights in the dark and feel like being in a movie, not watching it. A city not to miss in a life time.

  • love the vastness of LA (this quote comes from the movie "shoping girl" based on the novella by steve martin. an hommage to LA). The first time I was there it sucked big time. The weather, the dirt, the streets - pretty much everything.The more I came there (and I was there a lot) and the time I spent studying at UCLa and living in Los Feliz (be sure to check out this area near Griffith par where Brangelina already bought a house) I started adoring the City of Angels.Not only becaus you are in a meltin pot like New York with simply more space, but also because it's the place where movies are shot, where celebs are born and where you can where dark black shades while having a coffee at coffee bean on sunset.LA has something magical which only opens to people when they have been there various times or for a longer time I guess.The second night I went out I got totally wasted with Kiefer Sutherland in a bar with 4 people in there dancing to Britney Spears - Do you need anyhting more?
