I am going to be in Los Angeles again for work starting on July 25th for a few days.

I've got some usual "things to do" while I am there, such as going to the Griffith Observatory, drive the PCH and Mulholland Drive, and while I want to scope out some things to do for when I take my family next year, I want to focus on non-kid stuff, and of course, if it is free then it is even better.

Anyone have any ideas?

There's the Peterson Automotive Museum, that's pretty cool. Conveniently across the street from The The Tar Tar Pits. (aka The La Brea Tar Pits).

Dang... for a second there it looked like Louisiana (LA).

Maybe next time.

Oh, I should also mention that my wife will be joining me. While I am at work, she may need some things to do that are close to the hotel (Staying at the Embassy Suites in Glendale).

Scott, unfortunately, I have never been to your neck of the woods and my job won't take me there. frown

I managed to get tickets to see the taping of The Tonight Show. I don't watch it (much), but it will be fun to see live. Of course, I may have to fake "laugh" at some of the jokes.

There's a little dead end street off LaCienga (near LAX) where you can park and watch all the jets come in at about 250' directly overhead.

Venice Beach is a good place to kill a couple of hours people gawking.

Check out the new Disney Theatre in dwntn. LA. Amazing curved steel bldg by Frank Ghery.

The LA Zoo isn't bad--not San Diego, but not much else is. You'll be near there when @ Griffith. You'll also be near the Gene Autry Cowboy Museum.

Walk of Fame is free. So is "browsing" at Frederick's of Hollywood. They have live models who display the fashions now. Go now, before you have the family with you on the next trip.

You could do a drive-by @ 9292 Bundy. Might wanna save that for the family.

Then Chinatown, Little Japan, etc., also dwntn.

I love L.A.!

I've always liked the Museum of Natural History, but that's could be because of childhood memories.

It's great! And LA County Museum is right there. Japanese Pavilllion is kinda cool, and quick to see.

I won't mention the Museum of Science and Industry, since that's definitely a kid one. There's the Aerospace Museum there, too, I think.

Sweet. Keep the ideas coming. I am thinking about taking my wife to see the Korean Friendship Bell and then going down to the lagoons by the ocean for an hour or so too.

Dumb question, what is "9292 Bundy"??? I was thinking an address maybe, but google had no clue..
