Top 50 Things To Do In L.A.

So, I’ve finally gotten around to creating my list! The Top 50 Things to Do in L.A, starting with the ones my friends suggested at my 2nd L.Aversary picnic and continued by me. Keep in mind, this is MY Top 50 – the top 50 things I want/need to do in my (still relatively) new city. Touristy things, geeky things, artsy things…

My goal is to do all of these by the time my 3rd L,Aversary rolls around.
