i visited Los Angeles and its just too busy of a city. everyone is an A$$hole, and expensive. i'd rather be in Hawaii than be in a city that doesn't care about anyone or anything.

Here's an idea for L.A.

There is a private magician's club in Hollywood, The Magic Castle, in an old mansion. The only way to go there is to be invited by a member or stay at the hotel next door, The Magic Castle Hotel. This hotel is actually affordable, and has a nice breakfast and pool area.

The Magic Castle itself is a weird throwback to Hollywood past, and will give you insight into the nuttiness that is Los Angeles. You can eat there, and see several magic shows.

Just up the hill from the Magic Castle is a restaurant with the most beautiful view, Yamashiro's. This was the scene for almost every movie filmed about Japan in early Hollywood.

The grounds of both are amazing. You will also be close to Grauman's Chinese theater, and the Hollywood Walk of Fame.

Other favorite places are the Farmer's Market and the La Brea Tar Pits, Griffith Park Observatory, and a concert at the Hollywood Bowl.

You could do this in a couple of days, and take a shuttle to the airport.

Since you are from Greece, and are coming from Hawaii, the L.A. beaches may not be worth the hassle to drive there.

As for Hawaii, I love the Big Island, but there is not much real nightlife. San Francisco is wonderful. Be sure to let everyone know it's your honeymoon when booking your hotels, because you may get upgrades and nice surprises.
