I too just moved to LA, about a year and a half ago, and a friend of mine got my girlfriend and I turned on to this AWESOME walking tour book that I would highly recommend. It's called secret Stairs of Los Angeles by Charles Fleming. What you get is about 50 short walking tours (between 1-3 miles) that through hidden neighborhoods. I love this book because it not only gives you great historical information on each area you're in, but also because it was written so recently, it will point out random funny things along the way, for example, one walk said something like "peek through the slats in the fence to see the most extensive collection of garden gnomes ever". My girlfriend and I love to make a couple mimosas in to go cups and go on these mini adventures.
