If you want to explore a certain parts of Los Angeles, I have organized This Ugly Beautiful City by areas in the tabs above. By now I have at least one post per area. If you feel like being touristy, you can click the Hollywood tab above and find some thing to do in the most famous area of Los Angeles. If you feel like exploring Downtown L.A., click the DTLA tab.
If you scroll down to the bottom of this post or to the bottom of the main page you will find tags. I tag all of my posts so that you can find posts that help protect your budget, like night at IO West. You can hit the Girls Trip tag to find an itinerary for Culver City. The Bibliovores tag is loaded with books about L.A. and places in books.
