If you go to San Diego you have to go to Balboa Park. Great Spanish-revival
architecture from the turn of the century. It also has a large art museum and
a photography museum, which is my personal favorite. If you go on a weekend
there will be a number of street performers .... and it goes without saying,
if you come to LA you have to hit the new Getty. Olvera Street is a great
place to have lunch. The LA Central Library was remodeled a few years ago and
is absolutely wonderful ... public art pieces all around...definitely a unique
environment, not like any library I have seen before or since. Simon Rodia's
Watt's Towers is a great landmark. The LA Conservancy (sorry, don't have the
phone number) does walking tours of architectural landmarks, including some of
the old silent era movie palaces.
