Things to do in Los Angeles Find a neighborhood

Los Angeles is huge. Traveling by car is your best bet, and you can usually bet on traffic, especially during rush hour. Buses are few and far in between, and don't stray much from the beaten path. The Metro Rail is an improvement and will take you to most well-known destinations. A single ride on either bus or rail costs $1.50. Biking, blading, and boarding are ideal in beach-side neighborhoods.
