"Hi Rya, The following are nice places to check out in LA: - The Getty Center - museum is free, parking is $15 I believe - Malibu Beach - nice beaches, good restaurants, nice to walk around - Santa Monica - good place to walk around and get to a beach that isn't far too far from the Hollywood/Beverly Hills/Mid-City area of LA In Santa Monica, you can walk in on the Santa Monica Pier or the Venice Beach and Boardwalk."  See More
