L.A. is such a huge, sprawled-out city that there’s many things to do there! This time, I had the company of Sara, an L.A. local, to show me around. Overall, it was a good mix of tourist attractions and local activities (Like…eating, a lot). Here are some outtakes from my trip in December:
1. Enjoy rooftop views from Mr. C hotel (you’d be joking if you thought I actually stayed there *coughnotinthattaxbracket*):
2. Walk through the ever-so-fancy Rodeo Drive (on the way to brunch, of course):
Eat, eat, and eat some more! I think my interest in food photography blossomed since this trip to Cali…if you couldn’t tell from my latest Instagram feed.
4. Stroll around Third Street Promenade like a good tourist:
5. End with delicious (green tea!) donuts from Little Tokyo:
Visiting L.A. with a local this time was so different from the time I went on my own! While I still got to do typical “touristy” stuff, Sara also shared some of her city’s gems with me – like going up Mr. C hotel for a beautiful view of Beverly Hills. Thanks Sara! It sure made me want to travel like a local more!
Have you ever had the “local experience” in a new city or place? Where?
Thanks for reading!
