LA Long Weekend--Itinerary Help

Jump to last reply

I'll be in LA next weekend for a long weekend--arriving at LAX on a Thursday at 11 AM and leaving LAX on Sunday at 11 AM. I'm looking to make the most of my time there and was hoping people could help group a list of things I might like to do into an itinerary that works. I'll be staying in Koreatown at The Line hotel on Wilshire and am considering having dinner Thursday at Matshuhisa in Beverly Hills and the Brit in WeHo on Friday evening. I have reserved a rental car (Ford Focus sized), but not really sure how far away things are from. I realize some things might need to be cut, but also interested about hearing other fun or off the beaten path things that might be near things on the list. Maybe a walk outdoors along a beach or other area would be good.

Things I am interested in seeing:

-Downtown (maybe a self walking tour, Walt Disney Hall, Grand Central Market, other stuff down that would interesting?)

-Getty Villa (was at the regular Getty a few years ago)

-Huntington Library and Gardens

-A comedy club one evening

-LA Museum of Contempary Art

-WeHo area (any good coffee shops, areas to shop (home decor/vintage/boutiques)/people watch). What else is there to do in that area? Any recs on good low key trendy coffee shops/bars?

-Hotel Pool/Lounging

- Recommendations for good coffee/tea shops with excellent coffee and people watching (like Intelligenstia or Blue Bottle)

-Any areas with good short outdoor walks hikes--maybe along the coast?

Please help rearrange and suggest ideas!

Thursday:

Arrive 11 AM:

Settle in at hotel (lunch nearby? downtown? lounge by pool)

Maybe explore downtown then dinner in Beverly Hills.

Friday AM:

Museum of Cont. Art. then drive to WeHo Area.

Dinner in WeHo

Comedy Club (open for recommendations)

Saturday:

Getty Villa Museum

?Huntington Library or possibly a short hike walk in along the coast if Pasadina is too for--any suggestions)

Open to ideas for dinner--Maybe at the hotel restaurant

Sunday:

Need to be return rental car at LAX and flight is at 11 AM.

Any suggestions on a good breakfasty/bruncy place near hotel or en rte to LAX from KoreaTown?
