13 Weird and Wonderful Things to Do in Los Angeles

Who wants to do the same old things over and over again? We're not here at We Like L, A. So with that in mind, I decided to put together a list of 13 amazing, cool, fun and some kind of really weird things that you might want to consider doing if you live in Los Angeles or visit. From moonlight walks and shopping back in time to gawking at Mexican wrestlers and naked celebrities, here are some of the quirkiest things to do in Los Angeles.Unusual Los Angeles Attractions include The Last Bookstore, The Echo Park Time Travel Mart, Sunken City, Bradbury Building, Griffith Observatory Tesla Coil, and Old Evergreen Cemetery. Evergreen Cemetery on Yelp, 204 N Evergreen Ave, Los Angeles, CA 90033 (32) 268-6714 is the final resting place for mayors, war veterans, actors, musicians, religious leaders and everything else that dates back to the mid-19th century.

You'll see names that include Lankershimm, Bixby, Van Nuys, and others that you're sure to recognize as some of the most influential early residents of Los Angeles (or at least names of the streets you've driven). Hell, there's even a running path that runs through it if you're looking for an excuse to work out in an incredibly creepy place.Sunken City 500 W Paseo Del Mar San Pedro, CA 90731 is a great place to walk through the wreckage of a neighborhood that literally sank into the ocean. There are ruins of ancient foundations, rocks where there used to be outlines of old roads, and contemporary graffiti engraved on stony walls. Oh, in addition to incredible views of the ocean.If you're looking for something a bit more historical, then Watts Towers 1727 E 107th St, Los Angeles, CA 90002 (21 847-4646) is for you.

There are 17 sculptures in total, and they are definitely worth a visit.For those looking for something a bit more unusual, The Echo Park Time Travel Mart and The Last Bookstore are great places to explore. All proceeds from The Echo Park Time Travel Mart go to 826LA, which is a non-profit organization dedicated to supporting students ages 6 to 18 with their creative and expository writing skills. Two locations for your time travel needs: Echo Park and Mar Vista.The Museum of Jurassic Technology 9341 Venice Blvd Culver City, CA 90232 (3 836-6131) is a dirty, dimly lit place a little larger than a broom closet that hosts music shows, puppets, clandestine movies and more. It's hard to explain this satirical collection of random (and some real ones?) historical objects and curiosities.

Nowhere else in the city will you find paintings of Russian space dogs combined with collections of holographs, x-rays and practically any other type of strange graphic you can think of. If you're in the mood for the bizarre, this will satisfy your appetite.Bob Baker Marionette Theater on Yelp 1345 W 1st St Los Angeles, CA 90026 (21 250-9995) is another great place to explore the lost art of watching a movie in a car in one of Los Angeles. Electric Dusk 1000 Official Site San Julian St, Los Angeles, CA 90015 (81) 653-8591 is another great option if you're looking for a museum that has a “serial killer” room and an “autopsy room” with real-life crime scene photos.Jumbo's on Yelp 5153 Hollywood Blvd, Los Angeles, CA 90027 (32 666-1187) is part burlesque bar and part pole dance show. The experience in this place is difficult to explain but definitely worth having.Finally, if you're looking for something truly unique then check out some of the “storybook houses” that were built near the turn of the 20th century.

Tom Carroll (famous for Tom Explora Los Angeles) does a great job discovering the history of what was L. A., while Jolene in 365-LA does a great job taking you through some of the most prominent storybook houses that are still standing.Looking for things to do in Los Angeles?
