Some of LA’s best kept secrets are in plain sight. Hidden gems in LA range from neighbourhood stairs to get your heart rate up to that taco stand in Highland park that’s only open on Fridays (there’s a line). Check out our guide to where the locals hang, create, relax and eat.
There is never a shortage of things to see and do in Hollywood. Even if you’re in Los Angeles for a long stay, it might seem as if there isn’t enough time to check out all that this world-famous L.A. neighbourhood has to offer. When you’re in Hollywood, it’s best to keep your eyes on alert for the local gems. If you get swept up in the crowds on the main drags, you might miss the Egyptian Theatre or the Hollywood Museum. While the neighbourhood’s massive dance clubs are a big draw, don’t overlook more intimate spaces on Cahuenga Boulevard.
Take some time to head down to Melrose Avenue or veer west to La Brea or head east on Santa Monica Boulevard for a performance on Theatre Row or an outdoor movie at Hollywood Forever. Read on for Hollywood hidden gems that you don’t want to miss.
