Art Museum
“LACMA is definitely one of LA’s coolest attractions. Outside it has the famous row of lights that attract a number of tourists and there’s a lot of other cool art inside that’s worth checking out. It also has a solid (but pricey) outdoor restaurant called Ray’s & Stark Bar, which is great for happy hour or a bite between exhibits. The Jazz at LACMA summer series is a free outdoor performance by SoCal jazz musicians with special appearances in the past by jazz legends like John Clayton, and Billy Childs. What to know before you go: LACMA is open 11am to 5pm Monday, Tuesday, and Thursday, 11am to 8pm on Friday, and 10am to 7pm Saturday and Sunday.”

“Fun place to take the family. Go to the museum and then have a picnic in the garden. Bring a blanket and listen to live music on the weeks! Jazz in the park is always my favorite. Look online to see the schedule and what events they have going on.”

“You won't believe the half a billion dollars worth of cars they have. Yes, the television and movie exhibits upstairs are great....but buy the ticket to the vault downstairs. It's the best selection of cars in the world. ”
