So You Think You Know Los Angeles?

Go beyond the familiar to discover shops, restaurants, and natural landscapes you never knew existed

People travel from all over the world to experience Los Angeles. Some want to discover the magic of the movies at Universal Studios Hollywood, others come to shop the boutiques of Beverly Hills, while still more visitors hope to do little more than spend their vacation along the ocean, gazing out at the Pacific from the fabled sands of Santa Monica, Venice, and Malibu.

Alongside its greatest hits, Los Angeles is filled with hidden places that tourists invariably miss and that even many locals have never discovered, from surprising museums to remarkable natural areas. You could spend years exploring the nooks, crannies, mini-malls, and mountains to ferret out the county’s secrets, so here’s a quick look at some of L.A.’s most distinctive finds.

Post & Beam, Baldwin Hills

The Black-owned-and-operated Post & Beam illustrates how Southern California’s vibrant restaurant scene extends well beyond such popular dining districts as West Hollywood and Silver Lake. The Baldwin Hills restaurant blends traditional and contemporary approaches in a menu that brings together soul food and California cuisine. There’s an irresistible pecan pie French toast at the popular weekend brunch, while the dinner menu includes delectable shrimp grits, woodfired pizzas, and buttermilk fried chicken.
