Los Angeles: Side Trips
Let's say you get sick of the plastic people and fake happiness of L.A. The obvious solution is to go to Disneyland. When you get back, L.A. will look as gritty as a Raymond Carver novel. If you go at the right time, the drive to Anaheim might take less time than the line for the tea cups ride. Though no one does it, there's also the option of using public transportation: You can actually take the train to Anaheim or Fullerton right from Union Station.
