Summer brings crowds to Los Angeles, booking up hotels along the coast and restaurants in the city. From September to May the area is less crowded, and the air less smoggy, though you may encounter the hot, dry ... Read more
Santa Ana winds. Headed to the beach? Don't go in June when the 'June Gloom' makes the beaches cold and foggy for most of the morning. The coast is always a bit cooler than inland (head to Santa Monica and not Hollywood if you want a breeze). Whatever time of year you go, however, you can leave your down coat at home.

Wow!! Hollywood will make you miss your hometown in a hurry. Wasn't all bad. Chinese theatre, wax museum, and ripleys were all nice stops. Just to many people for my liking.

It's an amazing place if you have money and are willing too go to some sketch places. I personally enjoyed my time around Hollywood. One thing that did bother me and I know won't change are the prostitutes. It's no legal, but we all know it happens and people aren't that great at covering it up.
