Moon Los Angeles by Avalon Travel This full color guide to Los Angeles is categorized by neighborhood. Los Angeles is fairly spread out (compared to say San Francisco). As a result, it is easy to be overwhelmed by the size and diversity of this metropolis but this guidebook does a good job of just focusing on the main neighborhoods of interest – whether it be historical, for shopping, or movie related.
In addition, the book highlights the fun activities, the best places to eat, sleep and shop. Fold out color coded and numbered maps accompany each neighborhood. Also, short sections highlight the “best of Los Angeles”, star studded attractions and some of the city’s nicest urban experiences. The book is designed to fit into a pocket and be carried with you as you travel; it is thin and long in shape.
