The wife and I are doing a quick weekend jaunt down to LA for her birthday, and while I have a pretty good idea of what we are doing, a little outside help might be useful.
We are trying not to spend too much money on the trip, but I was wondering if any of the locals/experts could suggest some fun, inexpensive (if not free) things to do/places to eat that are uniquely Los Angeles.
As a side note we are intentionally not hitting DL or any other theme parks. As my wife says this is an LA trip, not a Disneyland trip. But we may swing by the Knott's store and DD for some stuff.
We are planning on hitting the WB studio tour, and probably spending sometime doing the tourist thing around Hollywood. We are staying in Downtown and doing a fair amount of driving around so anything in the greater LA/OC area is fair game.
Note, while it may seem that way, we are not trying for a Hollywood/Movie star oriented experience (not planning on doing the star maps/celeb spotting thing), so most things are fair game.
