Tips and reviews

Here's what Trippy members say about LACMA:

"food trucks are big in LA and offer a range of options in cool areas like Venice Beach's Abbot Kinney BLVD Shopping (way better to stroll than the Venice boardwalk) and across from LACMA (La County Museum of Art)."  See More

"*The Getty Center (Brentwood area) beautiful museum with beautiful grounds; popular tourist destination, but locals love it, too LACMA world-class museum—gets all the great, exciting exhibits Griffith Observatory in Hollywood (newly renovated; it’s best to go at night, but there is also a telescope that shows sun activity, during the day, and the view of LA is awesome) *Huntington Gardens (and Museum) in San Marino/Pasadena (beautiful, wonderful gardens-Japanese, roses, desert plants, etc."  See More

"Hi Maria! Welcome to L.A.! Beach: Venice Beach and Boardwalk (preferably on a weekend day to see all the street performers) or rent a bike in Venice Beach and pedal to Manhattan Beach.

"Hi Shehana, Is it ever really winter in LA? There's really no such thing as things shutting down for winter. We have been experiencing ugly weather recently, but for people from California that usually just means overcast skies. I know... we're spoiled haha.
