I will be heading to LA at the end of my CA trip the 1st week of November. I am not sure exactly how long I will be in LA, 1 full day to 3 days. I enjoy history, architecture, food, will have a car and will be travelling with my boyfriend. We are both in our early 30's.
You have to try breakfast at the Original Pantry Cafe. It's located at the corner of 9th and Figueroa in Downtown L.A.'s South Park district. It's been a LA fixture since 1924.
I would recommend staying at the Avalon Hotel in Beverly Hills. It's a good location and architecturally- interesting, boutique hotel.
