Los Angels is one of my all time favourite cities to visit. There is just something special about it, it has an energy that makes me feel so happy~I have been there many times and just love that there are always news things to explore & discover.
For this visit I decided to stay in the Venice Beach area - Being right on the ocean in walking distance to Abbot Kinney and Santa Monica makes for a great stay, and there are so many amazing places to eat (The Butcher's Daughter & Gjelina are both amazing, and serve breakfast, lunch & dinner, so are fantastic for any meal) so I really love staying in the area. One of my other favourites (I've shared in other LA Diaries but it is worth mentioning again!) is La Isla Bonita Taco Truck that you can find on Rose between 3&4th street - Seriously not to be missed!
You can also check out the Venice Canals (which are really beautiful at sunset) and of course, you can't beat walking along the boardwalk.
It is actually really nice if you have a bike to ride along the path to Santa Monica, it doesn't take long but then you can check out the shopping (Third Street Promenade is great for shopping) and you can visit the Santa Monica Pier too. If you want to have a drink or a bite after you bike ride, The Bungalow at The Fairmont Miramar is a really fun space to hangout, and if you want a more substantial dinner, the hotel restaurant Fig is really cute (actually it is great for breakfast, you can sit right by the pool, it is really pretty!)
More coming from L.A, stay tuned!
