LA offers fun, sun,.

By MIKE HALPIN
If you're heading out to the
Rose Bowl you're probahly plan-
ping to spend a few days in the
Los Angeles area. After all,
wouldn't it he a little silly to
travel all that way just to watch
a football game that's going
to be on TV anyway?
So, what can you do to pass
the time in the City of Angels
before and after the big game?
First of all, you can enjoy
the weather.
The average temperature
in L.A. is about 40 degrees
higher than the Ann Arbor
average this time of year. You
should expect some rain, but
just enough to clear the smog
away and wash a few hilltop
houses into the valleys.
The weather will be important
>ecause most of the interesting
hings to do in LA are outdoors.

The big event is the Tourna-
mentof Roses Parade on Janu-
ary 1. This seven-milelong prom-
enade takes place on the morn-
ing after New Year's Eve, but
if you can manage to roll out
of bed you should find it well
worth the effort.
Tickets for grandstand seats
along the parade route can be
purchased, but the parade route
is so long that you should be
able to get a good view for
free.
Next are the traditional
tourist attractions - but don't
knock them if you haven't
tried them. After all, you
might be able to fulfill your
childhood fantasy of shaking~
hands with Mickey Mouse.

Anaheim, and it's everything

Near Disneyland, this is "the
second biggest tourist attraction
in Southern California." It start-
ed as a berry farm and has
grown into an amusement park
with big name stage shows.
* MARINELAND - South of
Santa Monica; the performing
creatures include a killerwhale.
* UNIVERSAL STUDIOS-In
Universal City of course; they
offer an, entertaining tour in-
cluding backlots and stunt and
special effects shows.
* NBC STUDIOS - In beau-
tiful downtown Guess Where?
Another entertaining tour and
you might even get a chance
to sit in on the filming of "Hol-
lywood Squares." Aren't you
glad you came to California?
* QUEEN MARY --Long
Beach; her majesty is now the
home of a hotel, shopping cen-
ter, and Jaques Cousteau's Un-
dersea Museum.
* BUSCH GARDENS - Van
Nuys; botanical gardens, bird
sanctuary, and free samples of
the products of the brewer's
art.
* CHINATOWN - It was bad
luck for Jack Nicholson, but
maybe not for you.
Those are the hot spots for
tourists, and you could spend
a couple weeks doing them jus-
tice. Still, there are a few oth-
er things you might consider.
Since California was the Mec-
ca of youthful outdoor types (un-
til someone discovered Colorado
a few years ago) you might
want to try some more active
forms of recreation.
From hiking to hang-gliding,
from surfing to snow skiing,
you'll be able to do it in Cali-
fornia. The most popular local
beach is Santa Monica but Mali-
bu is only a little further away
and much nicer.
