Our expert authors have already gone everywhere you might go--they've done the legwork for you, and they're not afraid to tell it like it is, saving you time and money.

Frommer's hits all the highlights, from Hollywood to Malibu, and is on top of the latest developments in this ever-changing city. Our guide is simply much more complete and authoritative than its major competitor.

Our author, a lifelong resident, has checked out all the city's best hotels and restaurants in person, and offers honest opinions that will help you find the choices that suit your tastes and budget. You'll also get up-to-the-minute coverage of shopping and nightlife; fun features on everything from celebrity spotting to becoming a TV game-show contestant; in-depth coverage of all the best beaches; excellent maps; and side trips to Disneyland, Santa Barbara, and Palm Springs. Exploring L.A. has never been this fun! Frommer's Los Angeles also includes a free color fold-out map and an online directory that makes trip-planning a snap!
