Best Frozen Treats HIT : 465

Photograph by Carin Krasner We’re all for air-conditioning, but sometimes you need to cool off from the inside out. We visited dozens of shops offering soft serve, frozen yogurt, gelato, Italian ice, Popsicles, snow cones, and ice cream to determine where to blow your diet.  Vive la Différence Patricia Samson, a Francophile who studied ice […]

Best Sunglasses Shops HIT : 419

By the time tourists were snapping up pairs of military-style Foster Grants on the Atlantic City Boardwalk in the late ’20s, sunglasses were on their way to becoming a necessity (at least, as we go broke financing a new pair, we’re convinced there’s no living without them). Still, L.A.’s got a better excuse than most […]

Best Fireworks HIT : 422

In Los Angeles you can get your “Yankee Doodle” on in the Valley, in the hills, or at the beach. Beer and BurgersThe […]

Best Dance Studios HIT : 509

 Photograph courtesy Flickr/tibchris Long before Dancing with the Stars, L.A. took dance seriously; after all, this is the city where the funk moves of popping, locking, and electric boogaloo were born and hip-hop came of age. Given our love of exercise, it’s no surprise that there seems to be a studio everywhere you step. Whether […]

Best Kids’ Shoes HIT : 684

Fairfax Ave., 323-650-4885. Also at 18155 Ventura […]

Best Linen Shops HIT : 447

Photograph courtesy Frette Angelenos love their creature comforts, especially those that wait at home at day’s end. Bedsheets should be the epitome of soft and the cloths and napkins that grace the table anything but blah. Sure, you can compare thread counts with ease at the chains, but the staff at these linen boutiques can […]

Best Bowling Alleys HIT : 515

The clubby bar at Pasadena’s 300 The sound of wood crashing, the smell of beer, the sight of ugly footwear. What’s not to love? Tots and octogenarians alike can send the pins flying, and you don’t have to bring your own ball to pretend you’re a pro. Even as Xbox and Netflix try to colonize […]

Best Toy Stores HIT : 506

When it comes to kids’ toys, we’re suckers for wooden blocks and stacking rings, for dollhouses and minuscule villages, for fairy wings and refined tea sets that kick-start creativity without the help of AA batteries. Parents who are going cuckoo from beeping and blinking playthings will love Acorn (1220 5th St., Santa Monica, 310-451-5845), a […]
