I live in Los Angeles and have always wanted a comprehensive guide-book that I can keep in the car for those random moments of sudden inspiration to travel or see something new in the area. In such an event (which is very often!) going back home to spend time researching what I want to do or where I want to go can be the last thing you want to do, because that will totally kill the urge! On weekends, where all plans seem to get canceled on you, this guide book is a savior! Pick it up, pick a general area you wanna see, pick a couple locations/spots and just start driving! It's honestly THAT simple! The book is terrific! It also gives the "uncommon" or "less crowded" or "off-the-beaten-track" spots to see as well along with the obvious well-known ones too! This book is a keeper! $22 for peace of mind and total freedom to travel? Totally worth every single penny!
