I can't get over it. I had no intention of going to the USA, let alone Los Angeles. No desire and no interest. Then an interesting offer came up that meant we could be in LA for almost two weeks at a reduced price so we took it. Wow. Every day was mind blowing! If you are interested in going forget Florida, go to the far more interesting California. The essential things to do are:
Santa Monica – the liberal capital of CA, you must try Mr Cecil's huge beef ribs!
Universal Studios – Jurassic Park, Terminator 2: 3D and Waterworld Stage Show are worth the trip to LA alone!
The Tonight Show with Jay Leno – We were in the audience during filming and on the title credits!
Disneyland & California Adventure Land – Soarin' Over CA via IMAX is astonishing and Muppets 3D is always cool!
Downtown LA – the architecture, Little Tokyo, the Mexican district and of course the Walt Disney Theatre!
Shopping – From Bevery Hills and Rodeo Drive to Hollywood & Boulevard and of course Wal Mart (walked in the front door and all I see are George clothes and the smiley Always Low(ering) Prices tag line)!
And the single biggest reason to visit LA? Not spotting celebrities, not viewing past their homes, not even the LAPD getting carried away or even the Krispy Kreme Kafe donut making factory ... it was spending two hours whizzing around on a Seagway!!!! It's possibly the single most enjoyable thing I've every done and everyone should try it!
Anyway, a picture says a million words so here are a million pictures.
