How best do I spend 3 full days in L.A. ?

Hi there

I'm in Los Angeles 15-17 July. Traveling alone and staying on Sunset Blvd.

Hoping to get in as much as I can. Personally I don't mind doing some of the top tourist attractions mixed with one or two off the beaten path sights A cool lounge scene or bar is my thing too. On a South African Budget. Ten Rand to a dollar!!!!

Any suggestions?... txs

You'll need to help us. Is 10 Rand to the USD good or bad?

As far as 'things to do', check out this link: (click on the name of the attraction for a description of it):

Sunset Strip, Mullholland Drive with view of city (good luck in summer, smog season), take a short hike from the Giffith Observatory with views of the city and the Hollywood Sign, Santa Monica/Venice Beach.

You can find lounges in Hollywoood (I assume you meant Sunset somewhere in or near Hollywood) but the city's downtown has a lot of interesting lounges/rooftop bars to check out:

The Edison at 2nd/Main, Standard Hotel rooftop (downtown) on Flower Street, Perch rooftop (hill street) and the Ace Hotel (broadway).
