The parade of crack-hoes on South Figueroa are interesting as are their cheap and trashy customers. Each block of S. Fig has a couple of small rundown churches and sleazy no-tel hotels. There's the Sunset Strip chock full of prosperous and gorgeous young people who drive very expensive cars and wear shiny clothes. Drinks in clubs on the strip can easily cost $18.00 per so budget accordingly. Down on Santa Monica Blvd. between La Cienega Blvd. and Doheny is boy's town where throngs of young gay people go to dance, cruise, booze and hang-out. Many interesting photo ops to be sure. You might well take the subway or buses to these locals since parking is such a bitch and expensive when you can find it. Already mentioned, Venice Beach and the Santa Monica Promenade are interesting because of all the different people performing for tips. Don't forget the Santa Monica Pier.
