In the City of Angels, an enterprising tourist can do just about anything if they’re creative enough, though you have to know where to draw the line. You can get into pretty much anything in Los Angeles, so it’s probably best to start any trip to the city with a decent list of activities and pastimes you should steer clear of. After all, you don’t want to end up the subject of a Red Hot Chili Peppers song, (no one deserves that). With this in mind, here are a few things NOT to do when you’re traveling to California’s most famous town.
1. Avoid Hollywood and Highland
The intersection of Hollywood and Highland is like the Times Square of Los Angeles. There’s very little here that’s exciting or LA-specific. It’s pretty much just a big, shiny, tourist trap. You can absolutely do better.
