Would like to go somewhere that's not cold later this month for vacation and thinking of LA.
If I drive (my car, not rental), can people recommend safe areas generally where I could park my car and then just uber around to get to things? Ok to leave it in the hotel parking lot if the area isn't bad? I might be being paranoid, but my goal is to minimize break-in risk or theft.
For things to do, not interested in Hollywood, Disney or the tourist stuff. Looking for off the beaten path more interesting things to check out.
Some ideas I have (recommendations welcome):
- Nice cigar lounges in the city (preferably with a long bar)
- Live music (preferably jazz/jazz clubs), bonus if there is a open jam session night where I could sit in and play
- Good restaurants that I can reserve a table same day. Any type of food, just looking for gems with quality cuisine that aren't too hard to get into, price doesn't matter. Bonus if it's unique to LA (please, no chains)
