Proof is within walking distance and one of the best bakeries I've ever been too. Perfect place to grab a nice quick breakfast in the neighborhood, or get a delicious snack for later in the day.

If you've seen "You" on Netflix, you know about Erewhon. It's perhaps the most bougie and new age market in LA, and it also has every specialty food for every dietary concern that anyone could ever have. Their prepared food is also restaurant quality. Keep in mind if you come here that you're going to spend a LOT - it's up to you whether or not it's worth it to do so.

Sightseeing
Griffith Observatory is in the heart of Griffith Park. You can hike up to it from Fern Dell road, take the bus up, or drive up, although parking can be tricky on weekends especially. You can see most of the city from the outlook point - so go at night if you can! Otherwise, they also have an astronomy exhibit and classes you can take that are great for kids.

Visit UCB's late-night shows, in particular, to get a window into one of the most well-known stand-up comedy theaters in LA. Tickets are cheap, but make sure to get in line at least half an hour before your show to get good seats. Franklin Tavern right next door is a good place to get a drink and a quick bite before the show.

Los Feliz is still considered an up and coming neighborhood, though it's rapidly becoming one of the more sought-after places to live in the city. Vermont Ave and Hillhurst Ave, in particular, have great places to eat, shop, and get a feel for the local artistic scene.

Downtown is popular and still up and coming. It simultaneously houses a large homeless population and the best food and drinks the city has to offer. Go during the daytime if you want to walk. Otherwise, take an Uber or Lyft if you're going out for dinner or drinks because parking can be near impossible.

Public transportation can be unreliable, use Uber and Lyft
Driving in LA can feel like a nightmare, especially if you're driving during commuter hours (7 am - 10 am, 3 pm - 6 pm). Keep in mind, the mileage doesn't matter, the time does. Public transportation is unreliable and somewhat hard to navigate, so I recommend using Uber and Lyft if you don't want to drive. Check out parking options before you go. For example, parking in Downtown LA can be very expensive. Pick a central location to park at where there's a cheaper garage and then walk from there if you can. Give yourself at least 10-15 minutes to find parking if you're driving to meet someone.
Običaji i kultura
Don't drink the tap water. Seriously.
Just about everyone in LA either filters their tap water or drinks bottled water. I recommend filling up a water bottle with the filtered water in the unit, and then bringing it with you wherever you go.
Običaji i kultura
If you're going out, don't be afraid to dress up!
In LA, women are expected to wear heels and men button-downs - or at least a nice t-shirt and a blazer or leather jacket. Especially if visiting a nightclub.

For hiking, use the AllTrails app on your phone
There are some great trails for every level of fitness and experience that are a mere 5-10 minute drive away from your lodging. Use AllTrails to search for trails and sort by length and difficulty level.
