If I ever have a friend in town this is where I take them. The best of the best in my opinion.
The Standard Hotel. Who doesn’t love a hip hotel with a rooftop pool? You don’t have to stay here to visit. Also, be cautious of private parties and cover charges on the weekends.
Runyon Canyon. Don’t just park anywhere or you’ll get a $73 ticket. It hurts.
Drive along PCH. That’s Pacific Coast Highway. Top down, and let the beauty of the moment take your breath away.
Enjoy a brunch with a view of the beach, or get a decedent chocolate soufflé in the evening. The soufflé pictured is from Off Vine located in Hollywood CA.
Surf City USA or Huntington Beach CA. Experience some of the best waves in the country or at least be a witness of the surf culture SoCal has to offer.
My number 1 favorite spot is hands down the Griffith Observatory. Pictures don’t do this justice at all. This is something I urge you to see in person. It’s like looking at a painting. Blows my mind every single time.
The nightlife in Cali is phenomenal as well. Blvd 3 on Sunset serves chocolate covered strawberries and fresh tacos. Supperclub and Playhouse on Hollywood blvd are very close and popular spots as well. I never run out of things to do in California. Thankful for the time I have had here so far.
