A car in Los Angeles is a MUST. But, traffic can be a nightmare. Trust your GPS (especially via Google maps) to provide the best routing; then watch for alternatives as you progress. It will note "save 17 minutes by choosing this option." Click "accept" and it will reroute. Avoid rush hour times if at all possible. As for things-to-do, they are infinitely available. Consult the Internet for things to see and do; make reservations and you will have a ball. Whether your interests are the beach, Hollywood, museums, the mountains even with snow, the desert with multiple scenery ... you will find it in and around LA. If you don't plan ahead, you can find yourself driving around areas that make you wonder why ANYONE would go there You can see the best and you can see the worst in LA. Choose the best and you'll love it.

For foreign travelers, Google Maps with data access would be vital. So much easier to navigate around with location and traffic information at your fingertips. Also, don't miss Mulholland Drive. The night drive is fantastic.
