If you are new to LA and even if you aren't, Hollywood and Highland is a place to go. It has a ton of shops including the Gap, Banana Republic, BCBG, etc. and other smaller shops within this huge mall. It is a great place for tourists because it is located directly next to Grumman's Chinese Theater or Mann's Theater where the stars have their hand imprints over there. Also, there are a a bunch of place to eat there and around the area. Lastly, I believe they have a nightclub on one of the floors within the complex so young people can go have a great time.
