If you've left your brain at the office and want someone else to make the tough decisions during your vacation, you'll love this section. It's where I tell you what I think you should see and do during your time in L.A. The itineraries are broken down into 1-, 2-, and 3-day sections, depending on how long you're in town. If you've already made your way through "The Best of Los Angeles in 1 Day," the 2-day tour starts where the 1-day schedule left off, and so on.

But if you really want to enjoy even a fraction of what L.A. has to offer, you should plan on staying at least 3 days, preferably a week (besides, it'll increase your chances of getting discovered). And this might seem obvious, but you'll need a car to get around—public transportation in L.A. is improving, but still frustrating.

Before planning your schedule, take a moment to review L.A.'s neighborhoods.
