Best Of L.A. 2013 

It’s nearly impossible to cover a city this sprawling — 470 square miles of awesomeness, 6,499 miles of streets and 3.7 million residents, all of them seemingly on the 405 every time we need to get to the Skirball Center.

And so for this year's Best of L.A. issue, we brought in some gifted reinforcements — a crackerjack team capable of leaping over skyscrapers, tossing aside all those freeway-clogging cars, and flying from San Pedro to Santa Clarita with only a cape for propulsion. They picked the best hiking trail, the best spa, the best lobster roll, and even the best mausoleum for a photo op — 440 items in all, making this our biggest and best issue yet.

The craziest part? L.A. is so amazing, we still barely scratched the surface.
