  • I love this bookshop. It is huge and imaginative. Don't be offended that they check your bags at the entrance. It's downtown. They are very kind about it. Parking is a little tricky. You might have to pay $8. But, well worth the experience. It is a whimsical place.
  • Possibly the best bookstore in the world? They have a vault of rare books, cool displays throughout the store and even a few pop up style stores upstairs. The sheer amount of books on offer is immense and there are chairs and little nooks everywhere so you can browse through the books properly. The building itself is really cool too, like and old bank or something.
  • The Last Bookstore is possibly one of the coolest places I've ever been! I enjoyed the annex, the maze and all of the local artists as well as all of their regular books, used and new! I could have spent an adventure day there, maybe even a week. I think that living near L.A. would be worth it just to have access to this incredible bookstore!
  • AMAZING experience! Don't be fooled by the title, they have comics & records too! If you check in on Yelp you can get a 15% off used books discount coupon. The whole place was mesmerizing, I was there with my sister for at least 3 hours! It was incredible. You have to go to the very very top floor and way in the back past the vendors you'll find that infamous book tunnel :)
  • Wow.... I've never been in a store quite like this one. The vibe here is kind of like the world ended and they collected all the books they could and stored them in a hidden under ground library made from the scraps of the remaining world before everything was destroyed. There are books of all kinds. Take the time to walk around and see the books and artwork. You might find your favorite section hidden in the second floor behind a hidden vault or just past the tunnel of books!

Where to stay in Los Angeles

Los Angeles may be synonymous with luxury, but its accommodations include not only some of the most opulent and expensive hotels in the world, but also budget-priced hostels and inexpensive inns. In Los Angeles, a car opens up a world of lodging options, allowing you to stay outside the city proper and still have easy access to most major tourist attractions. If you don't mind splurging, consider Hollywood or Beverly Hills. To save money, stay near the airport or in the eastern suburbs of the city.
