Things to Do in and Around LA This Weekend

 

It's not called LaLa Land for nothing. Let's face it, Los Angeles is known for being the nucleus of everything Hollywood. From celebrity locals, Rodeo Drive to the famous sign sitting atop Mount Lee in the Hollywood Hills. But were you aware that Los Angeles County hosts several hidden gems worth a visit? Take a look at what we've found that may make your weekend "to do" list.

1. Stahl House

The Stahl House is a modernist-styled house designed by architect Pierre Koenig in the Hollywood Hills section of Los Angeles. This immaculate home achieved its place on the National Register of Historic Places in 2003.

3. Maurice and Paul Marciano Art Foundation

If you remember the Guess Jeans brand, then you'll know the founders Maurice and Paul Marciano. The duo transformed a former Scottish Rite Masonic Temple into their permanent home showcasing their contemporary art collection. The significance of this location is the building itself. Though renovations did occur once the museum transformation was underway, many of the lower floors architectural detail remain unscathed. The Marcianos even devoted an entire room on the mezzanine to Freemasonry artifacts once used in occult ceremonies.

4. San Pedro Fish Market

Going to be south of the city and wondering what is there to do? Need that Fisherman's Wharf-like destination? Maybe one that includes faux vintage warehouses, new retailers and full of fish trays cooked to order however you desire? San Pedros Fish Market serves its abundant seafood portions to guests seated at picnic tables overlooking the port. This affordable excursion is well-worth the visit.

5. The Last Bookstore

Yes, books. Paper, binding, and covers. This bookstore is a work of art that's entirely working. Floor to ceiling vintage to current books draws even the newest of book enthusiast. LA Weekly described it as “its stunning in-store design” with “books forming gravity-defying arches and typewritten scrolls acting as flowing overhead banners” is as much of a draw as its used book collection. Not only is it massive in size but equally massive in selection. And the cherry on top... they sell vinyl records too!!!
