Can't think of anything to do this summer? Checkout "L.A. Adventures: Eclectic Day Trips by Metro Rail through Los Angeles and Beyond."

The 278-page book by David Madsen and Elisa Makunga includes 15 separate day trips through the basin that covers jaunts to icons like the Chinese Theater in Hollywood and off-the-beaten path fare like Moles la Tia in East Los Angeles. This book will be used in my house this summer.
