    Hi Ken,

    If you have the time make sure to check out the Queen Mary in Long Beach. http://www.queenmary.com. Besides their Ghost and Legends tour there is plenty to see and do. They have a great restaurant on board called Sir Winston, fairly pricey though.

    Have a great time while your here.

    LA jeepers haven't been there in ages... but when I was the food was generally ok if you avoid all chain restaurants like the plague and book your tables now!!

    The best restaurants have 3-4 month waiting lists. If you want to eat, it is what you have to do. Alternatively you could travel with your own personal chef and pre-sourced food. 8)

    It is unfortunately like that in any major city. London is no exception. The waiting list for the IVY at its worst is a year!! Put it this way I already have reservations for my birthday in September at somewhere decent! Fortunately I belong to several 'members only places' in order to be spontanious!

    Any restaurant that has a window on the street and a name that ends in steakhouse is pure poison. If a waitress trots up and says 'Hi my name is....' then that is your cue to run screaming.....

    Somewhere there is supposed to be a fabulous sushi restaurant - -find and report back on how you get on!

    Well Ken, if you want great sushi in the LA area, try Little Tokyo - right in the center of downtown. Sushi made by real Japanese people!!

    If you want to take the family to an amusement park that has a little bit of a history lesson included, try Knott's Berry Farm

    If you want to take in a little of the LA/Hollywood culture, you could take in a movie at the world famous Chinese Theater. The area around the theater is full of several interesting sites including the Hollywood Wax Museum

    Have a good time, and remember to never look cross-eyed at any of the natives.

    NOOOOOOOO I don't want sushi...like I said "if they don't have time to cook it...I don't have time to eat it"

    The rest does sound like good options though

    I live in Chicago so it isn't like I haven't been to a big city or anything.

    The natives??? They are worse here...although it is getting colder and they are now looking for new boxes to live in!

    Ok how about Magic Mountain? I liked it better than Knotts Berry Farm which I find 'too kiddie and touristy'.

    Sushi mmmmm .... the smoked eel is especially nice and technically it is cooked ;-)

    The residents looking for boxes made me laugh. I am planning to go to Transworld but I don't plan on venturing out from the convention centre except on scheduled tours.

    Magic Mountain Six Flags has the best roller coasters in the entire WORLD! They also have the #1 rated rollercoaster in the WORLD called 'X'.

    At Universal their Mummy ride is 10 times better than the one in Orlando, with tons better theming!!!

    If you go to Knotts its pretty dead, you can just walk right onto anything but its not that exciting outside of Halloween. They do have a lot of really cool looking old west sets.

    Why not try and catch a Laker game? LOL

    When we went out for Haunt X we went to the Desert, Joshua Tree. Mohave and Death Valley. Also took the Arial Tram up to the mountains near Palm Springs. Hit the La Brea Tar Pits, Disney and Universal. I really like California, lots of great stuff and lots of amazing nature.

    Good Luck!
