Food Scene

We always like to order these things off their secret menu: Double-Double, Protein Style Animal Fries, Well Done Cheese Fries, Extra Well Done The drive-thru lines can be long at dinner time. Instead of waiting in the car, we recommend you park and order at the window, then sit in their outdoor covered seating area.

Sightseeing

Vast views of the San Fernando Valley and a small picnic area. Bring your camera. It’s the early vista point on Topanga Canyon Blvd. before you get deep into the mountains. (That drive is stunning, and in 15 more minutes if it’s not rush hour, you end up in Malibu which is a great place to hang out.)

Look up online the locations of your favorite stars before you go. When you arrive, look around in the hills for the Hollywood sign. Walk to Grauman’s Chinese Theater (where the stars’ handprints, footprints, and signatures are in concrete). We like to eat at Shake Shack in Hollywood. There are parking lots in the area which you can find by driving around the area near the Walk of Fame. It costs maybe $6-10 typically (if we recall correctly).

Entertainment & Activities

Go to Universal Studios early, right when they open. Go on the rides first before the lines get long. Then go on the tour tram, and see the shows. Right outside the Universal Studios entrance, Universal Citywalk is full of fun shops, restaurants, and more.

Hop from boulder to boulder up the giant pile of rocks until you get to the top. More of a fun rock climb than a hike. Go early in the morning.

One of our favorite beaches for picnics because it's not too crowded. Free parking along Pacific Coast Highway. Lots of surfers. A bit rocky. Halfway between Malibu and Santa Monica.
