My husband is turning 30 and we are new in our city. We don't have too many friends here. How can I make his day special?

If weather permits, have a picnic at a river, beach or park. Have food that he LOVES, no matter what! Take some of his favorite music with you, a pretty blanket to sit upon, and enjoy. Call the Chamber of Commerce in your area to find 'off the main road' types of parks or places.
Do either of you have facebook accounts? You could message all his friends and have them send him birthday cards.
If you have enough time, you could ask his/your friends & family to send photos and stories and make him a scrapbook.
Why not do some research about L.A. and type up "30 Fun Facts about L.A." You would both learn more about your new city. Include some history about the city and fun places to go see. Maybe include in the card that you will go exploring and visit 30 great places in L.A. That way his birthday will last for months. You can go to funky, local restaurants, cool art galleries, parks, tourists sites, museums, etc... You'll have fun together and make many memories and laughs! Have fun!
Do thirty little things to surprise him or make him happy. Starting with a good morning kiss , breakfast, messages written and tucked into a pocket you know he'll use, pick him up for lunch and do a picnic or restaurant that's at a new location. You get the picture. It could last all day (and into the night! lol) Have fun. Do things he likes to do. Skype with old friends back home.
When my then-husband turned 40, I secretly made a big sign (4 feet by 3 feet) "Honk and wave. I'm 40 today!" and taped it to the back of his van. He drove all over the town that day with people honking and waving and grinning. He had no idea until he got home and walked around the back the of the van and saw the sign.

What can I do for my husband's 30th birthday?
Do a theme around your husband's interest. Like if he is in to golfing, have a cake made with a golf theme. Use golf tees and golf balls like confetti. Use green tablecloth for "greens". If you are going to use balloons use clubs as weights. Hope this helps.
