nullSouthern California (SoCal) it a cultural center full of entertainment, arts and sport venues. Unlike places like New York, where many of the venues are found close together, entertainment venues in SoCal are spread out and harder to find.

In this section, I will be publishing articles highlighting main entertainment complexes, museums, fun centers and shopping centers in the area.
A good source of information about fun in SoCal is Venues are divided into categories like “Amphitheaters and Stadiums”, “Drive-in Theaters” and “Family Entertainment”.

As usual, you are invited to add your own articles about places you visited or comment on existing articles.

Some of my favorite places: The Getty Center and the Getty Villa; Griffith Observatory and Planetarium; Hollywood Bowl; Honda Center; Spreckels Organ Outdoor Pavilion; Garden Walk; Balboa Park; Bowers Museum; Hollywood and Highland; and California Science Center – to name a few.
