Too hard to answer without knowing your tastes. Are you traveling with kids or alone? Best Pizza in California is Pizzeria Mozza: 323 866 5300 -- best seafood in California is Hungry Cat Santa Monica (310) 459-0018) -- go for a stroll on beach before or after -- best museum you must see: The Getty -- best happy hour: Fraiche Santa Monica (on Wilshire between 3rd and 4th) -- it's open 3p to midnight -- best bar -- too hard to answer unless I know your tastes. Best Hike: Hike up to the Hollywood Sign in Beachwood Canyon
I suggest visiting the Malibu beaches, followed by the Santa Monica pier and then on to Venice Beach. Next visit the Getty Museum, allow at least a half day. Griffith Park including the planetarium is a good stop followed by a drive along Mullholand Drive. Finally the Long Beach harbor area including the Queen Mary and if you care to go farther south, Huntington Beach.
Disneyland if you haven't been and the beach if you haven't been
1. Sunset & Vine; Hollywood Boulevard and the Stars Walk 2. Any beach, the most iconic is Venice Beach 3. Museums: either the Getty or LACMA 4. Concert at Frank Gehry's masterpiece DisneyHall 5. A photo hike to the Hollywood sign 6. Beverly Hills 90210 and Rodeo Drive. You will note I do not include Disneyland or Universal Studios; reason being they each require one day each and are stand alone destination theme parks. Given only two days they should saved for another trip.
