But a handful of L.A. hotels have elevated their gift shops to store-size spaces offering apparel, jewelry, and accessories that exemplify the […]

Best Kid-Friendly Restaurants HIT : 556

We go to Dish in La Cañada for homey all-American food and Border Grill in Santa Monica for nouveau Mexican. But for the quintessential L.A. kids’ menu, it’s hard to beat the multicultural mix at Curry House in Little Tokyo. Happy, patient servers offer children a choice of Japanese curry, chicken teriyaki, or spaghetti, along with french […]

Best Library Collections HIT : 577

Illustration by Serge Bloch It’s true—there is still plenty of printed matter that can’t be accessed on the Internet or uploaded to your Kindle. The libraries of Los Angeles are home to a vast collection of, well, special collections. We considered dozens that are open to the public: Some are scholarly and immense; others reflect […]

Best Bargain Day Spas HIT : 498

Best Volleyball Beaches HIT : 588

This sport of tanned bods and tight abs came of age in L.A. in the early 1900s, when private beach clubs brought volleyball out of the gym and onto the sand. The doubles format, adopted as an Olympic sport in 1996, predominates today. The beach game is popular because it’s cheap (the price of the leather […]

Best Fireworks HIT : 506

Best Trail Rides HIT : 523

In L.A. you can be toiling in a downtown office building one minute and galloping along an oak-shaded canyon a half hour later. No other metropolis has as much equestrian activity. While most rental stables cater to neophytes—the pace slower than the 405 at rush hour—a handful enable intermediate and advanced riders to get out […]

Best Afternoon Tea HIT : 567

Photograph courtesy Flickr/*saxon* On the surface, Los Angeles wouldn’t seem the most hospitable location for upholding English customs—our weather is too pleasant, our teeth are too impeccable. But import we do—from Charlie Chaplin to Bentleys, polo grounds to soccer pubs. Even the Playboy Mansion is mock Tudor. It may have been Queen Victoria’s lady-in-waiting who […]
