Beautiful, stunning, an amazing view to accompany some of the great works of art in the world. Free (parking is $25) and worth the drive up the 405. Go early as possible in the morning.

Every time I have visitors from out of town, I bring them to the Getty Center. They have a really broad collection so there's something for everyone, and some exhibits are always changing so I see something new every time I go.

There is no "fine" dining. Just a table cloth restaurant, you'll find people wearing shorts. I wouldn't worry about shoes.
