Hey Maniacs, I am just looking for some advice from you guys that have experienced LA before. My wife and I are traveling to LA in mid-July for about a week. Staying for free with my best friend who is a drummer out there so that helps and he will know the area as well. Just again looking for any places that people think are a MUST in that area, weather that is food, recreation or just some awesome experience. I had our first day there all planned out, we get in like at midnight and got a 4-star hotel for us which would have been a surprise to my wife and had a rental car and the next day all planned out because it is around our anniversary and I had an anniversary ring for my wife I was going to surprise my wife with and give it to her by the ocean and all this mushy shit lol... she found it where I had it hidden haha. Still going to have that fun day though. Thanks for your help.
