I've been living here in LA since '94...here's some things I suggest you not miss (some you've already noted).

Griffith Observatory Historical, brainy, AMAZING views of the city. Just plain great.

Randy's Donuts Best damn donuts EVER. You'd think a gimmicky place like this would suck - you'd be wrong!

Museum of Tolerance Not the feel-good museum of the year, but very, very well done. Makes you want to be a better person. Highly recommended.

Amoeba Music Best selection of used music and movies on the planet. Warning: you could spend HOURS here!

Upright Citizens Brigade Theater Live comedy. 'Nuff said.

Grauman's Chinese Theater You can't come to LA and not see the hand and foot prints outside the Chinese Theater (as well as the walk of fame!)

See Brave at the El Capitan . STUNNING theater!

Take a studio tour! Universal Studios Tour or Warner Bros. Studio Tour

Magic Mountain If you like roller coasters you gotta go here!

Want to shop? LA has some great outdoor shopping areas. The Grove, Century City Mall and the Third Street Promenade. (Third Street is the least "mall-like" and always has lots of fun street performers!)

Have a great trip!

Awesome! Thanks for the links. I was looking for some shopping areas for my wife and kids in Santa Monica while I am at work for a couple of days. Some of the other stuff is already on the list, but a number of items aren't. We will have to look and see what we might add/change/adjust.

Thanks!

Delta Airlines was kind enough to call me at 3:15am that my 6:15am flight was delayed until 8:00am. I would really have appreciated that had they not already called me and emailed me at 11:20pm last night with the same information. Oh and then they called again right afterwards for the same thing since my family is travelling under two reservations. At least I didn't get to the airport and sit here for an extra 105 minutes... Of course it started storming this morning and now there is talk of being further delayed even though it is fine right now and he are half way between the orignal departure and the delayed time. I say let's go!

I wish I could be annoyed like that. Air Canada only calls us names.

Going to see Brave at the El Capitan theater in Hollywood. The movie is in 3D and featuring the new, 128 channel, Dolby Atmos sound. Should be fun.

Indeed; and note that Patrick Doyle, who composed the score for Brave, will be the guest tomorrow night on Jim Svejda's music program on KUSC.

If that is how a movie is supposed to sound, I am clearly not watching mine loud enough. VERY impressive imaging. Besides a flawless sound field everywhere, the overhead arrays were neat. Subtle and not an overpowering "wow" factor all.of the time, but the scene with the rain hitting a make shift roof as impressive. I dont see how this would really help much in a home theater since it takes a massive space to work....

Oh and the El Capitan Theatre was amazing. There was a live show before the movie, a lot of pomp and circumstance... Awesome experience..

Can you believe it? We have 1 day left and are racking our brains as what to do. We got almost all of our list done (skipped Disney) and a bunch of other stuff that wasn't on the original list, but now we are struggling with what to do Monday. Our flight leaves at 11:00 pm (yuck, red-eye) so we have most of the day. We could always go back to Universal since we have a free 2nd day, but it would only be for about 3 rides.... We'll find something I am sure...
