Los Angeles is a fun place to visit and explore. Perhaps it’s the sunny weather or its proximity to Hollywood, but it can be difficult to decide what to do next. Here are the top 10 best things you can do in LA.
10. The Witch’s House
516 Walden Drive, Beverly Hills, CA 90210
Located in nearby Beverly Hills, near S Santa Monica Boulevard, you’ll find a uniquely styled house that seems to come from a childhood storybook. Technically called the Spadena House, the house’s unique architecture attracts many visitors. While it’s okay to park on the street, make sure to read any nearby signs where parking is prohibited.
9. Chandelier Tree
2811 W Silverlake Drive, Los Angeles, CA 90039
Thirty vintage chandeliers were strung along the branches of a sycamore tree to create a stunning display of light and beauty, located in a beautiful residential area. If you donate money to keep the installation working through the meter, you can discover some funny pre-programmed messages created to thank donors.
8. Walt Disney’s Barn
5202 Zoo Drive, Los Angeles, CA 90027
Do you love Disney? If you do, you should plan to check out Walt Disney’s Barn. For a suggested donation of $5, you can check out where Walt Disney spent hours creating his miniature and replica trains. It’s only open the third Sunday of each month from 11:00 am to 3:00 pm.
7. Echo Park Lake
751 Echo Park Avenue, Los Angeles, CA 90026
Whether you want to stroll along a beautiful lake, walk your dogs, or spend quality time with your family, Echo Park Lake has activities everyone will enjoy. There’s plenty of parking and cool festivals, such as the Lotus Festival, to attend. Throughout the park, there are additional activities, like rental paddle boats.
5905 Wilshire Boulevard, Los Angeles, CA 90036
The LACMA is a very large and comprehensive art museum that features more than 130,000 pieces from around the world. The museum prides itself on featuring work of historical and geographical significance. Plan on spending the whole day at the museum or attending a special event.
5. Museum of Death
6031 Hollywood Boulevard, Los Angeles, CA 90028
When you need a break from traditional fine arts museums, check out the Museum of Death. You’ll learn more about serial killers and look at detailed case information, including crime scene photos. Plus, there’s free parking, which is pretty uncommon on Hollywood Boulevard.
4. The Broad
221 S Grand Avenue, Los Angeles, CA 90012
Opened in 2015, The Broad is a contemporary art museum located in downtown Los Angeles. It features more than 2,000 pieces of contemporary fine art, many of which are postwar pieces. Admission is free, though you’ll have to arrive early if you’d like to reserve a spot for the infinity room, which is a mirror-lined room filled with many LED lights.
3. The Getty Center
1200 Getty Center Drive, Los Angeles, CA 90049
The Getty Center is a museum that overlooks beautiful Los Angeles. You can look at paintings, sculptures, and manicured gardens. Once you park, make sure to take the tram to the main building to avoid a strenuous uphill walk.
2. California Science Center
700 Exposition Park Drive, Los Angeles, CA 90037
You should plan to visit the California Science Center at least once, even if you’re not traveling with kids. You can learn about technology, science, and the human body throughout its permanent exhibits, which are included with free general admission. Plus, you can see the space shuttle Endeavour up close.
1. Universal Studios Hollywood
100 Universal City Plaza, Los Angeles, CA 91608
Many people come to Los Angeles for some time spent in the famed Hollywood movie scene. At Universal Studios Hollywood, you’ll enjoy theme park attractions and see a live film studio. This is unlike its sister park in Orlando, where the majority of the movie-related filming is staged.

Many individuals and local authorities have already jumped on the opportunity to remind users to drive safely. There are even signs popping up on highways to encourage safer driving.
Luckily, there are tools out there to help the tech-obsessed (or the poke-obsessed) improve their driving. One of our favorites is an app called TrueMotion Family! The app analyzes your driving in order to provide you with a score - and insights as to how you drive. It's perfect for parents who want to monitor their teen drivers. The app gives parents the power to see where their kids drive, and produces a 'report card' on their driving in addition to an assessment of whether they were driving distracted (using their cell phone). Plus, families have access to roadside assistance on-demand from right within the TrueMotion app.
I don’t remember Ash, Misty, or Brock driving cars in their quest to be the very best, like no one ever was. And there aren’t vehicles any in PokemonGO. At Urgent.ly, we love the game and just like you, we’re prepared to travel across the land searching far and wide to catch 'em all, but we encourage you to put safety first in your travels! Remember that the power of Pokemon is awesome in augmented reality but automobiles are a powerful tool meant for use in the real world and require optimum focus to operate safely. In a world we must defend, you can start by driving safely, and catch and train ‘em all when you’re not operating a vehicle.
