About The Book

With details on everything from the Hollywood Bowl to the Sunset Strip, this is the only guide a native or traveler needs.

The Not For Tourists Guide to Los Angeles is the essential urban handbook that thousands of Los Angelenos rely on daily. The map-based, neighborhood-by-neighborhood guidebook divides the city into 57 mapped neighborhoods and pinpoints all of the essential services and entertainment hotspots with NFT’s user-friendly icons.

Want to drive around the palm tree–peppered concrete jungle like a pro? NFT has you covered. How about sunbathing on a beach? We’ve got that, too. The nearest Hollywood club, holistic health practitioner, sports outing, or shopping destination—whatever you need—NFT puts it at your fingertips. The guide also includes:

• A foldout highway map covering all of Los Angeles
• Over 150 neighborhood and city maps
• A guide to TV and movie studio locations
• Listings for the best shopping destinations

Everything from supermarkets, cafés, bars, and gas stations, to information on 24-hour services, beaches, public transportation, and city events—NFT will help you find a boutique for an Oscar gown and then show you how to get there.
