The definitive guide for tourists and locals alike, this comprehensive guidebook draws on a lifetime of local experience for 1001 great things to do in Los Angeles.

Probably more than any other major cultural metropolis, Los Angeles is a city for those in the know. A guide like no other, this is the first book to go beyond locations and events to tap into the variety of things only a local could know. The Best Things to Do in Los Angeles explores every aspect of Los Angeles life. Find the best spots to view the Hollywood sign or exactly where to catch postgame fireworks at Dodger Stadium. Track down the most authentic eateries in ethnic enclaves, and engage in L.A.'s legendary food wars, from hamburgers to French dips. Follow the most beautiful routes up and down the Pacific coast, take your own unique architectural tour of the Hollywood Hills, or find out where the city's best bookstores are and read up on it all instead.

Organized by theme - from destinations to views and sights, food and drink, and of course the Hollywood trail of superstar haunts and famous locations - and with contributions from celebrated Angelenos including, Gary Baseman, Flea, Ludo Lefebvre, Sasha Spielberg, and more, this is simply the most helpful and fun guidebook there is to the City of Angels.

MEDIA REVIEWS
"In vast Los Angeles, it's easy to feel at a loss for where to begin (or to be straight-up lost). Not with a new guide to the city, The Best Things to Do in Los Angeles: 1001 Ideas. L.A. native Joy Yoon offers a fresh view of the town, suggesting sites and activities for the traveler (or even local) with contemporary tastes. Her "classics" chapter covers predictable tourist spots like Chateau Marmont and the Hollywood Walk of Fame, but the rest of the book offers up insider-y info, such as a primer on local fashion designers, and a tip on where to find Korean short-rib tacos." Wall Street Journal

"It's a delight to come across the likes of Joy Yoon's The Best Things to Do in Los Angeles, a big fat, fun-to-read compendium that offers fresh perspectives on old LA standbys alongside eclectic, unexpected leisure-time ideas. Yoon has expertly crafted over a thousand mini essays that will make you want to take an LA vacation pronto or get out of the house for an adventure if you live in Southern California." Passport Magazine

"Thoughtfully organized by type of experience rather than geography, the book does the impossible and makes a bewilderingly complex megalopolis remarkably accessible. Tightly-written capsule descriptions give you everything you need to know to plan your voyage. The book leaves no LA neighborhood stone unturned; from behind the Orange Curtain to the San Gabriel Valley. Yoon even provides brief education on local fashion designers, philanthropists and seasonal street fairs." Cool Hunting
