This October, a myriad of museums and galleries in Los Angeles will team up for a celebration of post-war art. All kinds of art forms like photography and music will be exhibited, so this is an event you won't want to miss. But when you're taking a break from all the art, there's much more to see in LA than just palm trees and paparazzi. The golden state has lots to offer for tourists and locals alike. Now that the east coast is cooling off for fall, there's no better time to plan your LA getaway. Here are the must-see exhibits, best restaurants, and coolest attractions to see while you're there.
