Here’s a good opportunity to see the Los Angeles scene as a local might. Local venues like this are something of a rarity in this town, because, let’s be honest, most events draw as many tourists as they do locals. Thus, if you’re interested in seeing LA as the locals do, consider a night out under the stars with Los Angeles Street Food Cinema.

Beyond reality TV stars, paparazzi and movie studio backlots, the best sightings in Los Angeles are gorgeous views from hilltop hikes or rooftop bars. Though L.A. is best known as the center of the entertainment industry — home to skinny palm trees and even skinnier celebrities — it’s also a city full of art, performance, global cuisine and history, with a vivid past that can still be seen all over town.

The Sunset Strip is a legendary strip of Sunset Boulevard between Crescent Heights and Doheny Drive which, in years past, marked the setting for the counterculture protests of the 1960s, the rock and roll extravagance of the 70s and 80s, and stands today as a showcase for the good life. The Sunset Strip is located in LA’s Westside, neighborhood and overlooks the blue Pacific. If you’re planning a trip to Los Angeles, you can’t miss the Strip.

Spend the day (and night) in the heart of downtown Los Angeles with an array of entertainment, restaurants, shopping and pure fun!
Begin your morning with a bargain-hunting shopping trip at Santee Alley also known as “The Alley.” Located on Santee Street and Maple Avenue, the name exemplifies its atmosphere as you go up and down small alley streets to different vendors selling women’s and men’s clothing, shoes, jewelry, handbags, sunglasses and more. On the weekends it gets extremely crowded, so get there early. For a unique experience of Santee Alley (and more) with a local guide, book the LA Shopping Extravaganza Tour.

With Lent right around the corner, devout Christians know that this upcoming Wednesday marks the beginning of some personal sort of abstention with which to honor the upcoming Easter holiday. And while we all may not share these theological beliefs, we are all aware of the tradition of Fat Tuesday and its historical debauch before relinquishing our much loved vices for forty days come Ash Wednesday.
