Budget Travel in Los Angeles

Description:

Los Angeles can be experienced on the cheap: there is memorable sight-seeing here and great affordable ethnic food. Generally speaking, prices rise as you head west in the city. (Don't let this keep you away from the ocean; the Pacific is a must see and no one can charge admission.) The Getty Center is included here as it's affordable–you just pay for parking–and it is a whole lotta museum!

My other guides (especially L.A. Beaches, Walks, and Affordable Restaurants) supplement the selection here.

The days of this list are organized with this content:
