The Page Museum at the La Brea Tar Pits is one of Los Angeles's most well-known attractions. Visitors here can explore a variety of extinct Ice Age plants and animals and will be able to imagine what the world was like when saber-tooted cats and mammoths roamed the Los Angeles basin.
Start your visit in the Fossil Lab, where museum staff are cleaning and cataloging the newest bones and fossils discovered by the site's excavators. Then head outside to watch the excavators themselves at work, searching for more Ice Age treasures. Meet a life-sized mammoth replica at the Lake Pit, and take a tour through the Pleistocene garden, filled with the vegetation that was once abundant in the area. The museum and tar pits are large, and taking it all in can easily be a day-long experience.
Described as “furniture with a soul,” Nadeau is one of the most popular places in West Hollywood to find unique, charming decor for your living space. Tom and Ryoko Nadeau founded the company in 1991 with a mission to design and manufacture items that never needed assembly, never got left behind by trends, and would always start conversation. Since then, they’ve expanded their business across the United States.
The West Hollywood store has a spacious showroom that spotlights the items' cozy boho look. The staff is helpful and knowledgeable, and best of all, the prices are reasonable.

The Griffith Observatory is a famed Los Angeles landmark that not only offers beautiful views of the night sky, but also affords visitors a perspective of the city skyline that can’t be found elsewhere. Both visitors and locals alike are impressed by this architectural masterpiece serving as an ode to the stars.
In addition to the sky gazing features of the observatory, the building also house quite a few exhibits showcasing artifacts of the study of astronomy, information on the astronomical objects, as well as items of art work that use the cosmos as inspiration. The garden surrounding the observatory is an attraction by itself, with its perfectly manicured lawn and impressive architecture. While admission to the observatory is free parking can be a bit tight during high-volume hours.

The historic building that houses the Geffen Playhouse was originally constructed in 1929 to serve as a clubhouse for UCLA students and alumni. Today, Los Angeles theatre-goers can stroll through the building's charming central courtyard and admire the restored tile fountain during intermission, or thrill to the more recent theatrical history that has been made inside the Playhouse's walls.
The Geffen Playhouse has been the recipient of more than 40 regional theatre awards, and it's played host to performances by many internationally known actors over the years. The theater space itself has an intimate feel, and every seat provides a good view of the stage.
