Los Angeles is one of those cities that is very spread out and has so much to see and do. In fact it is one of those places where there is almost too much to do. Theme parks aside (as they are usually full or multi-day attractions), here is a list of seven places you should visited in LA.
EXPOSITION PARK LOS ANGELES
Featuring eight attractions in the one place, of these the Natural History Museum is celebrating its centenary. Best known for its Dinosaur Hall, especially its T-Rexs and 20 complete dinosaur and sea creature mounts.

Perhaps the most famous beach area of them all.
