I've never been to California, and I'm pretty excited about this trip. I'll be working during the daytime, but I'll be mostly free in the evenings, and I'll have the whole weekend of the 6th/7th to just kinda hang out by myself. I know there's a million things to do in Los Angeles, but I'm nervous because I'm going to be alone, and it's such a big city, and I've never been there before.
My question is: What stuff can I do? I want to see some Hollywood landmarks, of course, but aside from that, is there anywhere else I should make sure to go? Do you have any restaurant recommendations? Anywhere or anything I should avoid?
DK/DC: This will be the longest I've ever been away from my boyfriend, and that's gonna suck. How can we handle the separation? (Late-night sexy phone calls are a given.)
