#1 Don’t Book a Flight to LAX
Avoid the crowds at LAX by flying instead to Burbank’s Bob Hope Airport. It’s far easier to navigate and is less crowded and has a direct rail connection to downtown Los Angeles.
#2 Don’t get stuck in a queue at Pink’s
Unless you enjoy tediously long waits and mediocre grub, be like those in the know and track down the nearest food trucks on Twitter.
#3 Don’t Jaywalk
The city is notorious for its jaywalking tickets, and even celebs aren’t impervious to it. Just follow the crosswalk signals and be vigilant.
#4 Don’t take a Hollywood star home tour
Unless you’re into well manicured lawns or tall gates, a lot of celebrities don’t even live in Hollywood or Beverly Hills. You’re more likely to see a celeb in one of the locally owned restaurants or independent shops.
#5 Don’t walk to the Hollywood Sign
Even after you’ve made the climb, you won’t get within 20 feet of the sign because of security and preservation measures. Instead: See it from further away. One of the best spots to view the sign can be found along Beachwood Canyon Drive.
#6 Don’t go to the sunset strip during the day
During the day, the Sunset Strip is just another line of cafes and shops. It’s after the “sun sets” that it comes alive!
#7 Don’t bother with Venice Beach Boardwalk
Yes it’s known mostly for its interesting inhabitants who stroll the boardwalk along Ocean Front Walk but it’s also usually very crowded, especially on weekends, where you’ll have to move with the speed of the crowd in order to walk down the Venice Beach Boardwalk.
#8 Don’t go to Hollywood and Highland”
It’s like the times square of L.A., and therefore a huge tourist trap! Everyone will try to sell you something on the street, and even Spiderman will ask for money to take a photo with him.
