cool spots in Los Angeles

vacation coming up soon. This will be my 3rd straight trip to L.A ( been going for the past few years for bboy competitions) but this time I'm going for almost a week as opposed to 3 days. Where are the cool hangout places if anyone knows?

venice (aka muscle) beach during the day. hit the clubs on sunset blvd at night. maybe catch a show at the hollywood bowl. there's also an observatory and greek theater in the park. plenty of tourist traps in hollywood: manns chinese theater, bruce lee museum, capitol records, la brea tar pits... the list goes on and on and on... downtown LA is horrible though, nothing like downtown Manhattan (which I miss terribly)

I was living in Orange County during the riots...............
All the idiots/losers were burning down their own Grocery Stores.......
On TV they would show the looters walking away with one box of cereal...........
those people just don't know how to think big........If your going
to loot, you need to steal something of value...........

Dont come to L.A., Its much to overated, Dirtbags all over, Its filthy even the nice areas and the weather sucks . Theres much better places to go like the grand canyon. Northern california has some very nice lakes.

I have to go...I compete in the competitions. My cousin is going to pick me up and I guess we'll hang out in Hollywood and Santa Monica blvd. I like LA but I could never live there. Maybe San Diego or Frisco (which is too expensive) but LA...only if I could live in a nice area which would cost $$$.
