There are a million ways to do Los Angeles and having lived in Southern California for over 26 years, I hate to admit that there are still things I haven’t seen, done or ate yet! That is the beauty of this city, everyone has a different, priceless version! There is always an adventure, I love this city!
Family and friends from out of state have visited California over the years and we always play tour guide. We love playing tour guide, I think we’re awesome at it. One of our ways to do LA and my favorite is our traditional Sunday Funday – we start off at the Hollywood Farmers Market, order lunch from one of the many vendors, grab a spot on a community table and just enjoy the beauty in the food and people. Checking out music, sampling fruits and getting fresh squeezed orange juice are other farmers market musts. Sometimes we peek in at the shops at Space 15 Twenty which is right next to the market. There’s an Urban Outfitters and one Sunday Funday we saw Mr. Brainwash looking at a pair of Adidas. Random, right? Next door is Hennessey + Ingalls – an incredible bookstore with amazing titles. Across the street is Amoeba Music, one of the last standing music stores! One afternoon we lucked out and watched Peanut Butter Wolf spin a live set. The area is also known for Nike Montalbán, Iguana Vintage, The Pantages Theatre, W Hollywood, Katsuya.
After eating, we venture out to see art and shop! My favorite museum is LACMA. We recently checked out the Stanley Kubrick exhibit. One of my favorite directors, he definitely understands the art of making a movie. Our favorite galleries are Gallery 1988 and La Luz de Jesus at WACKO. I never turn down visiting WACKO – it is a fantastic shop. Next door is Ozzie Dots, a cool costume shop. There is no shortage of places to eat/see/do. The possibilities are endless – culture, adventure and discovery await you!
Will you wanderlust LA with me? I guarantee you a priceless experience.
