Reviews - What do customers think about Time Out Los Angeles (Time Out Guides)?
One of the best Sep 24, 2008
TimeOut publications always have high standards. This is another one of them. Very well done high quality print, well illustrated and organized, and with highly valuable information.
Of all the L.A. pocket guides I have, this one has the best detailed maps (as much as you can fit inside a booklet like this). Choice of attractions, dining, hotels, shopping and everything else included is very well selected and info on individual entries is well written.
Although some other guides will provide more extensive lists of places to go (e.g. dining), if you were to pick up only one L.A. guide, this might be the one.

great guidebooks. Little hard read at first, but useful all the time. worth read before trip. Not the one that you can just open on scene.
Time Out - the best travel guides!!! :-0 Aug 20, 2006
While there are heaps of travel book guides on the market, Time Out are better than all others. Lonely Planet are good and DK are good, but this range is a little more in depth and seems to go the extra mile. After a fun introduction, there are the usual sections you'd expect to find in a guide book; Restaurants and Bars, Hotels, Nightlife, Shopping (my personal favourite) and things Nearby to name a few. I believe their maps are more detailed and layed out really well. There are hours for shops and restaurants and websites too. They include things for people on all kinds of budgets. Another cute idea they have going on is little blue notes on various pages with a point of interest that has been used in a movie or TV show. For example, on page 116 it mentions that the Grand Olympic Auditorium (with its address) was used in Million Dollar Baby. These are just another added bonus that makes this more unique. I have found these guides useful in the past, and this one is going to come in handy again, because they always update to include new places to stay, eat and shop. These books are so helpful and I think you'll find that too. Check them out, and you may not use other guides again.

These books are really helpful and useful. Even if you're like me and know your way around Los Angeles like the back of your hand, it still comes in handy. It gives web addresses and phone numbers and more correct information than I've seen in other publications. It also gives you the closest freeways to a particular location. It's a good compact size too. All the Time Out guides I've read are as good as this. They are on a par if not better to Lonely Planet.
