Getting to L.A. then driving to Vegas and staying at the Paris hotel. Leaving Vegas on the 28th and heading back to L.A.

Anything particularly nice to do? I heard great things about BIG SUR, PHC, L.A. etc.

Anyone have any good hotel recommendation in L.A.?

Thanks in advance.

Each coaster here and totally clueless.

LA doesn't suck..lots of things to do..Google them:

LA Live area (near Staples center)
The Grove/Farmers Market
Getty Museum
LACMA
La Brea Tarpits
Beverly Hills/Rodeo Drive/Hollywood Blvd
DOLBY Theater
Santa Monica 3rd st
Chinatown
J-Town (Japanese Town)
Griffith Observatory
Downtown LA (Garment district, Jewelry District, the Alley)

Change your ticket to Vegas and enjoy an extra day. There are nice things to see in Cali, but LA sure as hell isn't one of them. It's a sh!thole.

Yeah, no way would I risk going over 90mph on I-15 without a V1 since those chippies like to like to hide in some good spots. The fastest I ever made it to Vegas was in about 2 hours and 40 minutes (I left at 2am in the morning and it was an open highway).

+1 Driving to Vegas in my M was a lot more fun than driving in my daily beater.
