    Made a stop here after ending my Rte 66 voyage from Chicago to LA and so glad I did. I've been a car nut for nearly 50 years, so I very much enjoyed the museum. Much of the main museum has rotating exhibits. When I was there there was a James Bond movie car display that was ridiculously thorough. The hyper car display was also cool. The highlight for me though was the self-guided tour of the Vault. It's an added cost, but we'll worth it. These are cars currently not on exhibition. It had everything including brass era classics, hot rods, low riders, movie amd TV cars and everything in between.

    It's like a visit to Jurassic Park, we were supposed to go to academy award museum but they wouldnt let my son in (really) two years after covid while no masks are required in public places in CA...so we headed out of the parking lot and followed our noses to the Pits. It is so cool, after 4/430 pm its half price and you can do the museum in thirty minutes without the show. The last show was 4 so we missed it, but this place is out of this world.. Oil is still bubbling to the surface in the lagoons, and over 1 M (yes million) fossils have been pulled from the pits. So lumber on over, La Brea tar pits is great fun for young raptors to old geezersaurus

    Great museum complex with a surprisingly varied and large collection for a "County" museum. Lots of Picassos for example, and other modern art. And of course a nice sampling of earlier Renaissance pieces etc.

    The museum still requires masking throughout (regardless of vax status) which was annoying. Unlike most of the City. But even more annoying is the fact that in order to buy a ticket you have to GO ON LINE, a process that I found to be fairly difficult to navigate. Staff seemed less than thrilled to explain the process as well (likely over and over to numerous people) and would not sell tickets the ORDINARY way.

    I am not a novice on my smart phone but found the process to be difficult. As it did not work after several attempts a staff member had to help. I can't imagine how difficult it would be for a person who can't speak english to buy a ticket when there are staff members sitting around (Right in front of you) who could just sell you tickets directly. But won't!

    A dumb procedure/policy if there ever was one! I just wanted to buy a ticket!

    We got lucky while driving we saw it and stopped the car nearby and visited. It is a beautiful spot to take pictures. It was also seen in the move 'love actually'.

    I always wanted to check this site out since I was a youngster. It very interesting with all the different animals that had been caught and recovered from the tar pits. We also had the opportunity to see the technicians work on a fossil in their lab. It is neat that they built the city around this landmark.

    I LOVE small venues for concerts. And when the hub bought tickets to a show here, driving up over an hour from OC was NBD. The show that night was general admission, so I brought my cane with me. With a dislocated kneecap, I can only stand for so long, even with braces. But once there, they had ADA seating…huge kudos to El Rey for that! Great venue, great sound and great staffing. Highly recommend!

    What a fantastic part of LA! I’ve driven through it a few times (like most LA peeps) but now I finally had a food excuse to stop! I visited back in late September as part of the #localadventurechallenge and wow - it’s just oozing with culture!

    We were there too early for lunch unfortunately, so I’ll definitely have to come back and try some of the interesting restaurants and food! I did grab an Ethiopian coffee at Paradocs (see my review!) and it was THE BEST!!

    I highly recommend checking out the area if you’re looking for something unique and culture-filled to do - something new to try that is “so LA” bc I really feel like LA is all about embracing the numerous, vibrant cultures that fill the city!

    I attended a one-day lecture series. The parking is convenient and building is beautiful. It's size more than accommodated a large audience. But, and it's a big but, there are only four lady toilets off the lobby and four more up a large stairway. Completely insufficient for over 300 guests. So there were long lines at every break.

    Standing 35 feet tall it is named for Spring. Created in 1971 by Aristides Demetrios it is an arresting art work.

    Sculptured in bronze it arises from a circular fountain, resonating with new growth and new life.

    The Theater: It is located inside LACMA, near the bookstore and cafe. It is mid-size theater. There is enough leg room. The sound effects are okay. Love the location because can hang out at the courtyard or garden area before or after the performance.

    The Parking: LACMA parking lot $12. Private lot across street (on Wilshire Blvd, $12). Street metered parking.

    We only had a short time to see Los Angeles and this is the only way to go! Tracy was our tour guide and became a friend after a half a day spent together. She picked us up and dropped us at the airport right on time. We saw and learn so much during our 6 hours tour. I can definitely recommend booking with ClassicExperiences if you want to have a good time, it’s worth every dollar.

    My wife and I are from the United Kingdom. When we decided we wanted to marry in Los Angeles, we didn't know where to start. We found lots of celebrants and it was a minefield. Once we found The Albertson Wedding Chapel we didnt look back.
    I contacted Daniel, Evan and the team and they were amazingly helpful. From recommending beach wedding locations,liaising with our minister for the day - The amazing Alfonso and our superb photographer Karl. Prior to the wedding they were readily available to contact with any queries. Coming from another country I found this extremely reassuring.

    The wedding day itself went perfectly. My wife, Hayley and I married at Point Dume beach in Malibu after a recommendation from Daniel.

    Daniel and the team ensured our paperwork for our marriage certificate was completed the day before the ceremony at the Chapel. And we received our wedding licence three weeks after we returned to the UK.

    Daniel even provided his mobile number for the big day just incase we needed him

    Honestly, if you are looking to marry in Los Angeles. Wherever the location do not look any further!

    Daniel and the team, thank you for everything.

    Love
    Mr and Mrs Rainsford
