    Sunset is great but try jogging before the sunrise and run under the sky as it gets lit. Beautiful colors!

    The place you HAVE to visit. Be careful of street hustlers. Come 1.5-2 hrs before sunset, walk, drink. Watch sunset

    Great place for street art & purchasing hand-made crafts. Very interesting shops. There are some good restaurants. Make sure you wear sunscreen!

    Despite its fame it didn't leave me a great impression. There is not so much to do or see. If you have limited time head to Santa Monica instead.

    Crazy crazy! Love it! Take a bike and cruise all over to Santa Monica and come back. Enjoy the skaters, there are few restaurants near by if want better food and shop. The native Indian store is cool
