From the beach man­sions of Malibu to the dive bars of Echo Park, this sprawl­ing west-coast me­trop­o­lis is home to film­mak­ers, artists, hip­pies, surfers, and dream­ers alike. You can count on this feel-good city for great celebrity spot­ting, tacos, hip-hop, and of course, year-round sun­shine and waves. Clean Plates (Free) The City of An­gels is a play­ground for health-food junkies, har­bor­ing up­scale raw restau­rants, veg­e­tar­ian fare, and or­ganic tonic bars around ev­ery cor­ner. Whether you're on a gluten-free diet, off sugar, or look­ing for lo­cally pro­duced meat, Clean Plates will help you find de­li­cious restau­rants nearby that fit your di­etary re­stric­tions.

5 Ev­ery Day (Free) Va­ca­tions are the per­fect time to go out­side your com­fort zone. To that end, the mak­ers of 5 Ev­ery Day drum up a hand­ful of L.A. hap­pen­ings for you to ex­plore each day. The app is sim­ple, list­ing five ac­tiv­i­ties, such as a con­cert at the Getty Cen­ter or a moon­light roller derby. You can tap the ac­tiv­ity to get de­tails, price, and di­rec­tions.
