    I had a great map of LA, specifically showing the various "areas" mapped out (Hollywood, Westwood, Culver City, Century City, Santa Monica, Brentwood, etc).

    But it's bookmarked back home and I can't find it now. I've tried googling everything I can think of- but no luck. I don't really need a street map (maybe if it highlighted the highways)- more a nice, color coded map that shows the various districts of LA like a US map shows the states.

    Anyone have any links? I'm pulling my hair out.

    I have a thomas guide. The problem is it, like most maps I could find online, are far too detailed. I just wanted some simple color blocks of the various major LA districts into the valley, so I can quickly know what neighborhoods are close to what neighborhoods.

    Something like this, for LA:

    It's tough to open a Tomas Guide and find out where Canoga Park is in ref to Marina del rey in ref to Sherman Oaks compared to Encino, etc.

    The ones you linked to might work out. Thanks.

    Zen, your map just reminded me -- when will Sherman Oaks make it to DVD?

    i thought the front pages of the thomas guide had a general overview of the city....don't remember now.

    definitely check out a bookstore - they usually have "lite" maps of the city....

    yeah vince, how's it goin' so far? is LA all you imagined, etc?

    have you walked down the avenue of the stars yet? that's quite an eye-opener.

    if you take the paramount studio tour, think of me! (i used to be one of the pages there and often gave customer/vip tours.)
