Revue de presse

"In vast Los Angeles, it's easy to feel at a loss for where to begin (or to be straight-up lost). Not with a new guide to the city, The Best Things to Do in Los Angeles: 1001 Ideas. L.A. native Joy Yoon offers a fresh view of the town, suggesting sites and activities for the traveler (or even local) with contemporary tastes. Her "classics" chapter covers predictable tourist spots like Chateau Marmont and the Hollywood Walk of Fame, but the rest of the book offers up insider-y info, such as a primer on local fashion designers, and a tip on where to find Korean short-rib tacos." ~Wall Street Journal

“It’s a delight to come across the likes of Joy Yoon’s The Best Things to Do in Los Angeles, a big fat, fun-to-read compendium that offers fresh perspectives on old LA standbys alongside eclectic, unexpected leisure-time ideas. Yoon has expertly crafted over a thousand mini essays that will make you want to take an LA vacation pronto or get out of the house for an adventure if you live in Southern California.” ~Passport Magazine

"Thoughtfully organized by type of experience rather than geography, the book does the impossible and makes a bewilderingly complex megalopolis remarkably accessible. Tightly-written capsule descriptions give you everything you need to know to plan your voyage. The book leaves no LA neighborhood stone unturned; from behind the Orange Curtain to the San Gabriel Valley. Yoon even provides brief education on local fashion designers, philanthropists and seasonal street fairs." ~Cool Hunting

The definitive guide for tourists and locals alike, this comprehensive guidebook draws on a lifetime of local experience for 1001 great things to do in Los Angeles.

Probably more than any other major cultural metropolis, Los Angeles is a city for those in the know. A guide like no other, this is the first book to go beyond locations and events to tap into the variety of things only a local could know. The Best Things to Do in Los Angeles explores every aspect of Los Angeles life. Find the best spots to view the Hollywood sign or exactly where to catch postgame fireworks at Dodger Stadium. Track down the most authentic eateries in ethnic enclaves, and engage in L.A.’s legendary food wars, from hamburgers to French dips. Follow the most beautiful routes up and down the Pacific coast, take your own unique architectural tour of the Hollywood Hills, or find out where the city’s best bookstores are and read up on it all instead.
 
Organized by theme – from destinations to views and sights, food and drink, and of course the Hollywood trail of superstar haunts and famous locations – and with contributions from celebrated Angelenos including, Gary Baseman, Flea, Ludo Lefebvre, Sasha Spielberg, and more, this is simply the most helpful and fun guidebook there is to the City of Angels.

5.0 étoiles sur 5 An original guidebook for ALL of L.A. 14 juillet 2013
Par Smocules - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format: Broché Achat vérifié
Reading this book is like eavesdropping in on a conversation between people who knows all the secrets and ins-and-outs of the city -- plus it's a bit addictive (easy to read and not too much time spent on one topic, you'll find yourself flipping from page to page, like on a high speed tour through L.A.). What I most like about this book is that it shows there is more to Los Angeles than just west of downtown. For that reason much of the information contained within it is very original, not published anywhere else, or hard to find online, whereas most other travel books on Los Angeles seem like they gathered their information from . . . well, other travel books or popular travel websites. 1001 in L.A. makes you realize that no matter where you are in Los Angeles (north, south, east, or west), there is someplace interesting close by that you probably had no idea existed, and is worth exploring.

4.0 étoiles sur 5 Overall good: And here are lots of good/bad/neutral details! :-) 8 février 2015
Par Mark Twain - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format: Broché Achat vérifié
This is a pretty fun book. I only got it a couple of weeks ago, and already it's well worn.

*Overall*:
This is a long review, so I'll put this short bit here. If you're going to be spending some time in Los Angeles, and you want to explore, I would recommend getting this.

*Some good*:
- It has a Calendar of Events in the back, so you can look at the month you're in and quickly see festivals & events that are season specific

- It also has an index in the back. So, if you happen to already know the place to which you'd like to go, you can easily see what page it's on to read more about it.

- There are lots of ideas in here! Some unique and more local-feeling, some super tourist-y things, and some in between. I appreciate that it runs the gamut.

*Some neutral*:
- The eating chapter goes from #406 - #599. It feels like sort of a lot of time is spent on food. (Plus, there's another section on food trucks in the "on the street" chapter. And there's food mentioned in other chapters as well.) For me, I'd rather hear about more experience-based ideas than that many food ideas. But some people love food. So, to each her own.

- I like the way the book's laid out. It is nice that if you're in the mood for something outdoors, or if you're in the mood for some kind of art, you can flip to those chapters. However, as other reviewers have mentioned, it would be easier in some circumstances if things were listed by neighborhood/area. It'd be easier to plan an entire day quickly (or to try on of the restaurants on a whim after you've done some other experience) without having to rifle through the book to see what else is in your area.
(However, as I mentioned, the way it's laid out is nice, and that's the valid choice the author made. So, I don't think it's bad or good necessarily. It's just different... It might be nice if there were a digital version that could be sorted in different ways. But I also love the feeling of holding the guidebook. So, I dunno... Moving on.)

*Some not so great*:
- If you decide you'd like to fully explore one area the book mentions, you might have to do a little hunting around in various pages of the book to get all the information on the area to which you're going. For instance, Griffith Park is not mentioned in only one spot. There are different ideas for things to do within Griffith Park in at least 3 chapters - "The Classics," "The Great Outdoors," and "City of Cars." I think it might be easier if you could see everything the book suggests for one place all in the same area of the book.

- You will almost certainly not do everything in the book (in case that's your goal). There are ideas for people with pets. There are ideas for people with children. There are ideas that assume you have no dietary restrictions (such as vegetarianism or veganism). There are ideas that are time consuming (classes that would take you weeks or longer), and ideas that are quite expensive (such as a private tour of LA).
And I do believe that's lovely, as it gives tons of options since there is no one-type of person in LA. But still, I just wanted to put that out there that there are some specific things that will not really be for everyone.
And even *if* you happen to be a parent/pet owner/meat & dairy lover who never has to worry about money and has tons of time on her hands, there is an entry about an underground tunnel system that is no longer accessible to the public. (It's not that that's changed since the book's printing. The book itself lists at the end of the paragraph that the tunnel system is no longer open to the public.) But, it is open to government employees. So, if you happen to be one of those as well, well then perhaps you could do everything in the book after all.
(Side note: Even if you *can* do everything in the book, you might not want to. For instance, there's a section that lists 8 different options for bowling. Unless you really love bowling, how many times do you want to do it? And how different could each bowling alley possibly be? However, I also could see how someone who loves bowling could absolutely love going to different bowling places, and could revel in the tiny differences (same with golf and other things mentioned in the book). Again, to each her own.)

- There are almost certainly not actually 1,001 things in here. (Granted, 1,001 is a lot. So you may not really need all that many.) For one thing, there are some redundancies. For instance, #52 suggests going to a game at Dodger Stadium. #161 suggests sitting in the highest tier of Dodger Stadium. I think it might've been nicer to have that top tier idea be an idea within the paragraph of #52 - not it's own number later in the book. (Also, along these same lines, there are things that could be argued are actually the same thing, even though they're listed as many. Example - there are 12 numbered things to do in Disneyland. To me, Disneyland is kind of one thing that you could expand on, possibly with bullet-points. But that's an opinion thing.)
- In the book's defense, there are then sections where multiple ideas are mentioned under the same number. (For instance, there's a place to compare the best different kinds of food. Example: There's Father's Office vs Umami for hamburgers under one number - so, technically two restaurants under one place. And the book does that for many other types of food as well. So, maybe there really are 1,001 things when some sections double up.

*How I use the book*:
- Whenever a friend wants to do something, or especially when someone comes into town and we don't know what to do, one of the first things we do is look at the book. It's proven to be very helpful, and pretty cool.

- Every time I do something in the book, I write in the margins a quick synopsis of when I did it and/or who was with me. (After all, there isn't tons of room in margins of a book, but it's nice to have a jumping off point to remember the day. :-))

- I also write down little bonuses when I do something that's not mentioned in the book. For example, I don't see The Mark Taper Forum listed anywhere (even though similar-ish art/theatre spaces such as The Ahmanson and Disney Concert Hall are listed, so I understand not listing every one). Still, I enjoyed adding the theatre to the list. If there's one thing I'd recommend writing in the book (if you're adding stuff to yours), see a show at Deaf West Theatre. It is so cool and so powerful!

Anyway, I know this review was long, but I hope it was helpful to at least someone out there. Overall, the book can be quite helpful. Nothing's perfect. And no book's going to fit every person perfectly. But this book seems like it'd be a great jumping off point for a majority of people. Enjoy LA! Hopefully the book can help you do that!

5.0 étoiles sur 5 Seeing LA through new eyes! 9 juillet 2013
Par Kanyessa - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format: Broché Achat vérifié
As a native Angeleno who moved away 10 years ago I often find myself at a loss of things to do when back home, overwhelmed by the changes, as well as, all of the amazing things I grew up with and am not quite sure still remain. This book not only is a fun read but a great guide for anyone in Los Angeles, be they a tourist, lifer or a someone like me looking to see their home town with new eyes.

I am now in the process of challenging myself to do all of the 1001 things listed. There are a lot of reminders of the little things from my childhood I had forgotten and/or places I haven't visited in a while. What intrigues me the most are the many places listed that I have driven by all my life and never experienced/taken a second glance at what appears to have been missed adventures.

Thanks to this book I won't be saying "What should I do?" for a long time!

5.0 étoiles sur 5 You CAN Go Home Again 5 août 2013
Par sue few - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format: Broché
Wow! A great book. I, too, was born and raised in Los Angeles. My family moved to different locatiions when I was much younger, so I was familiar with almost all of what Joy Yoon was talking about. Her chapter on the streets, tunnels and bridges was so great - how often do we take all of those streets, tunnels and bridges for granted without examing them closely. When I finished the book, I didn't want to let go, so I ended up reading the index and found a lot of names and places I had overlooked! I don't live in Southern CA now, but am so homesick; this book is motivating me to go back home again.

Joy Yoon, you are wonderful!

Best Things to Do in Los Angeles: 1001 Ideas
What an amazing book! Written in a refreshingly hip and knowledgeable hand, it's unlike so many of those droll guides to the city. If you're a Native Angelino, this should be your ultimate Los Angeles bucket list! I've already started crossing things off as I do them. Summer movie at the cemetery? CHECK. Amazing fish tacos? DOUBLE CHECK. Easy and not to mention FUN to read, it includes old and new things and places to see that I didn't even know existed! It's a great gift for Angelinos,out-of-towners and world travelers alike who want to explore all the fantastic things this beautiful and diverse city has to offer.
