Los Angeles is a fantastic city but unless you know it well can prove a heck of a tough one to explore. Why just stick to the beach and major attractions when there’s so much more to see and do? Here are five blogs about LA and by Angelinos to help you make the most of your visit to La La Land! For this list I tried to look past the many big media blogs and all the gossipy celebrity obsessed sites and really try to focus on blogs that offer the best insider perspective for folks visiting from out of town. I hope you find these blogs to be fun and useful reads!
Hungry? You will be after reading this online ode to the Los Angeles food scene! From the Consuming LA manifesto: “They say that Los Angeles is like Granola, full of nuts and flakes.
