Visitors come to Hollywood hoping to see TV and movie stars on the job—but you might also spot them picking up groceries, or running home to grab the cell phone they left on the kitchen table. The Emmy-winning host and comedian has been helming ABC’s Jimmy Kimmel Live! since 2009, is originally from Brooklyn, but now calls Hollywood home. So we asked Jimmy to share his favorite places to eat and explore in L.A. and throughout the Golden State. Here’s what he had to say.
Tourists usually flock to Santa Monica or Venice. For natives of Los Angeles, they know that Manhattan Beach is the perfect beach that has everything beautiful about southern Cali beaches, as well as being a cool, close-knit community, where many LA Kings and LA Lakers live. Conveniently close to LAX in L.A.’s South Bay region, Manhattan Beach’s biggest draw is the sand, where the beach scene can sometimes look like a runway of models on the ultra-smooth sand.
If you love the ocean, marine life, shopping, dining, and entertainment then Shoreline Village is a must-see (and great photo-op) while you’re in Long Beach. Nestled on the beautiful harbor, Shoreline Village is the perfect setting for a romantic sunset walk or a family day out on the coastal bike path. For some fine dining, there's Parkers' Lighthouse. And for casual dining, try Shenanigan's Irish Pub & Grill or the Yard House.
