Rapid Los Angeles trip: What to see? We are nerds, and like art, food, gardens, architecture (I really want to stop by the Bradbury and see downtown). We'll have about 18 hours of free time to use. What can't we miss? [more inside]

In London there's a chain of restaurants called Aberdeen/Angus Steakhouse
- dated decor, expensive, scorned by locals but seemingly extremely popular with tourists. Are there equivalents in other cities?

I have a question similar to these two
timely threads about what to do in NYC, but with a Brooklyn twist. My family is coming mainly to see yours truly, and we've decided to kick it mainly in my hood, Brooklyn. What should we do? [more inside]

Whence the Asian tourist habit of having themselves photographed standing stiffly in front of monuments? It's the repetitivity/automation with which it's done that never ceases to amaze me. [more inside]

I'm looking for places in the US that are like Lancaster, PA in that they: 1.) have a low cost of living; yet 2.) Attract multitudes of affluent tourists looking to buy expensive hand made, "artisanal" things. [more inside]

Is there such a thing as "compassionate tourism" where people travel and volunteer their time/resources in rebuilding, in this case, the tsunami-hit South Asian region?

Recommendations of what to see/do when visiting Washington D.C.? We're going next week, and have a list of a few touristy spots to visit, but I'd like to see what Mefites recommend. Locals advice also highly appreciated, i.e. dance clubs and restaurants to visit. Finally, all over the web it says you must arrange a White House tour with one of your congressional representatives. We can't do that (group of two), someone said we can join a tour at a kiosk. Anyone agree with this? Please be kind if the question has been posted before, I searched.

I have two and a half days in London at the end of May. What are must-sees? Also, anyone want to meet a group of travelling American bloggers at a pub for a drink the night of May 29?
