Not sure what you mean by tours like Hollywood. It is an art museum so most people just stroll at their own pace to enjoy the art, gardens, and views without a guide. If you want, they rent audio headsets that you can listen to as you walk around with information on various works of art. Not sure if they have tour guides in the museum.

Now if you mean if there are tour companies that transport people there (like Starline Tours), then I'm not sure. You can drive to the Getty, take metro (connect to line 761), or take a taxi if you are staying in the Hollywood area.

Hmmm... I tend to explore the city a lot... but my local haunts are downtown Santa Monica and downtown Culver City. As far as malls go... I easily frequent Westfield Century City more than any other mall... mainly for the theatre.

Broadway & the Old Bank District in Downtown LA.....unique urban character in the center of "spawling" LA County.

In a practical sense, I enjoyed the 3rd street promenade because I could enjoy it and also walk or ride my bike to the beach; so, that's two different types of things to enjoy within about 1/2 mile of each other.

Dodger games

Mulholland Drive

Laserium when it was at Griffith Park

Santa Anita Racetrack

Another multiple destination: Peterson Automotive Museum (this place is incredible) and Melrose and Farmers Market and the Grove. All within walking distance of each other.

Universal City Walk (though I haven't been there in at least ten years)

i dont really hang out in one spot more so than others. for shopping, most of our malls have the same type of places but you might find a jc penny in one, and in another one a nordstrom. if i just need basic pieces for cheap, i go to santee alley in downtown la. thing is while it is cheap, most of the stores do not allow you to try on or return clothes.

I second the Getty (because it's free). I wish it were more easily accessible to me. I'd go there every day. For shopping, any of the farmers markets, not just the main one. For saunter/shopping nothing beats the Rose Bowl Flea Market or a late afternoon at Amoeba Records.

There's still some work going on now and a few vacant units but the place has a nice feel to it.
