Off to the desert to dismantle an atomic bomb

Well not really....but to have some fun for sure.

Im off to phoenix tomorrow afternoon to visit my best friend and we are going to do alot of stuff including going to a mets game and going out to california. Ive never been to cali, but I hear its great. we are going to a baseball game there too as well as going on the Tonight Show, and going to Disney.

My question is to anyone who has ever been there....................what is something we should aim to do?

we want to maximize our time and are open to any suggestions?

I think the Disney fireworks are only Fri-Sunday until "summer" (or school's out).

You can always go to Hollywood and see Grauman's Chinese Theater and the Kodak Theater next door... Sounds like you already have plenty to do

You could take the super-duper-duper long way from Phoenix to LA and go through Death Valley.

The fireworks are every night I can hear them

The Griffith Park Observatory, J Paul Getty Museum both not far from Universal. I'm not sure if Griffith Park has re-opened to the public yet. The website says 2006, it's not specific It's very cool though.

Santa Monica pier might be fun if you want to hit a beach.

When you get here I suggest picking up the calendar section of the LA times there might be a concert or festival you can catch.

If you want to see celebrities try eating at The Ivy.

Thank so so much everyone.

And Numb....Im going to see our Mets!!!

Well he has a computer out there, so I will check to remind myself of all this helpful hints you guys and gals have dropped.

Yes it is a very full trip. Last year I went out there and we went to Both U2 concerts, Vegas, The Hoover Dam, The Grand Canyon, Saw George Carlin, Went to a ballgame, Phoenix Zoo, just to name a few. I doubt I will be able to top that but we certainly have a lot planned.

And thanks BonosBaby for the well wishes.

Well since im leaving in a bit......I should probably start packing, haha.

Last year we drove from Vegas to Tahoe through Death Valley. My God, gorgeousness! I'd love to go back sometime.

My brother is going to LA over the 4th of July weekend and I'd go along but I'm in Europe for the summer.
