The Getty Center is great in a couple of ways. I always try to find a quiet spot where I can sit, read, and study in any new city I visit. I find coffee shops are great for people watching, but I can't get any work done in most places that blast music I don't like. So the Center is a great place to study and people watch. The restaurants on the grounds are great too. The art exhibits can keep an entire family busy for hours. I would schedule the better part of the day to see the entire complex, including the exhibits and gardens.
The great part is that the Center can be a very romantic spot. The south pavillion towers have a fantastic panoramic view of the entire Los Angeles area that can't be beat at sunset. The museum closes at 9pm most days and 6pm on Sunday.

Even if art is not your thing the view alone is worth it (hopefully on a clear day). But the best is the gardens. Check out the amazing garden display with many different species. A tour is a great way to discover this cultural haven - it's free.
There is a $5.00 parking fee. Reservations are recommended. Call them at 310/440-7300.
