I'm going to be in Los Angeles from June 6 to June 11. I'll be hiring a car to get around L.A. - though we'll mostly be sticking to Central LA and Santa Monica over that weekend (7/8 June). I've been to L.A. before and done most of the touristy things - relying on both local buses and hop on/hop off tourist buses. Because I'll have a car this time, I was wondering what recommendations people have for things to see and places to go that are tricky to get to without a car. Anything within a couple of hours drive of Los Angeles. Thanks.

I recently moved to the Los Angeles metropolitan area. I am looking for recommendations of your favorite low-key restaurants and food options as well as great "relaxation" spots. [more inside]

We're spending the 20th-27th in LA, where I haven't been for almost a decade. Please give us your recommendations for wondrous and strange and delicious things to do, see, and eat! [more inside]

I live in L.A. and I have someone special coming to visit. He didn't much care for this city the last few times he visited, so I want to take him to places that are very un
-L.A. Any suggestions? [more inside]

LA Filter: A friend is coming in to town to visit and we are planning on going to The Getty
on a Saturday afternoon. It will be near my birthday and her first trip to LA... Where should we go for dinner?

I love cars, particularly European classics, but modern and US cars too (though not the Japanese tuning scene). I'm in Los Angeles until January 22nd; is there an event or place that is a 'must see' while I'm here?

Tourists in Los Angeles! Where can I take a group of 6 to 10 rowdy 20-something guys from Texas in or around the Los Angeles area? [more inside]

I'm going to be in Los Angeles for E3 in two weeks with a bunch of friends. What do we need
to see? What restaurants do we need to visit? We'll have the whole afternoon available for sight-seeing the day before the expo, where should we go? We're spending a boatload on the plane trip and the hotel, so thrift is a virtue. We're all pretty adventurous, so a junky-looking restaurant with transcendent food would be totally fine. We'll be primarily downtown for the show and near LAX for the hotel, so things in those areas are preferred.

On Tuesday I'm going to find myself with five or six spare hours as I pass through Los Angeles. I haven't really seen L.A. before, so what should I do? What should I see? Where should I eat?
For what it's worth, my hotel will be near LAX on Highway 1.
