in a nutshell
The mistake many people make when they come to LA is expecting it to be like any other city – except maybe bigger. In fact, LA is like no other city. It’s a region unto itself: a sprawling network of suburbs, beaches, bars, clubs, restaurants and cafés – home to some 30 million people. Once you embrace that fact, things somehow becomes simpler. You stop worrying about the long drives. You embrace the theme park atmosphere of Venice Beach. You realise this a place built for good living, rather than tourists – and that that makes it one of the most captivating destinations there is.
Public transportation is a no go. Walking – meh. Your best bet is to rent a car. It´s L.A what do you want?
Santa Monica, Venice, Arnold, Hollywood, Broken Dreams, The Dude.
