6 Los Angeles Websites That Every LA Girl Must Bookmark

When I first decided to start this blog, my mission was to share all the information I could about my hometown of Los Angeles. LA is such huge city and with so much going on all the time, it’s really hard to decide on your go-to sources. With my blog and social channels, I try to curate and compile all the events, news, features, and information that I can. I can honestly say that I’m not able to share everything single thing with you, but I know a couple of folks that can. Here’s a great list of the top Los Angeles websites every LA Girl must bookmark!

For the ones who are always out and about…

LA Weekly draws in readers with comprehensive calendar listings and political coverage. Their music calendar is definitely top notch and my some of my favorite sections include Culture and Film & TV.

For the ones who want to stay in-the-know…

LAist is great with breaking news and I love their trending spotlight at the top of their page, so you know what people are talking about. They also have great food and lifestyle articles in the mix.

Discover LA emphasizes traveling within and exploring the different regions of Los Angeles. They make the “tourist” experience easy, helping you fall in love with Los Angeles all over again. They also feature locals on their social channels when you use the hashtag #LAStory.

From the many skyscrapers to the hidden street corners, Happening in DTLA covers the urban mixture and cultivation of diversity in Downtown LA. They are focused on the upcoming neighborhood of Downtown Los Angeles and also have other sites that feature other neighborhoods including Highland Park.
