Also, you might get lucky and see a celebrity outside Beverly Hills….I spotted Ray Romano in downtown LA.. I recommend getting around with Lyft of Uber though, since driving there sucks so bad.

    The places I remember most fondly from my trip to LA are Venice Beach, for the amazing collection of characters, and Santa Monica. I spent a very relaxing evening sipping drinks and watching the sunset at a beach bar on the latter.
