Los Angeles is known for its glitz and glamour, beach culture, blockbuster studios and famous residents. But there’s much more to it than perfect teeth and tanned and taut bods (though near-perpetual good weather does offer plenty of opportunities to get physical outdoors): La La Land is a haven for artists and architects, top chefs, fresh designers and trendsetting retailers. Good advice is essential for navigating this sprawling metropolis with aplomb; luckily The Monocle Team has uncovered everything you'll need to know to get the most out of a trip to the City of Angels.
The Monocle Travel Guide Series reveals their favourite spots in each city, from the ideal route for an early-morning run to the best streets for independent retail. Full of surprises and quirks, they also feature detailed design and architecture pages, neighbourhood walks that take you away from the crowds and choice places to eat, be it for tasty fast food or something truly celebratory.
