Los Angeles is one of my absolute favourite cities, so I was super excited to have the opportunity to travel to L.A with Lincoln Canada and see it in a whole new way!
Having a car in L.A is a must - there is so much to see & do, and sometimes they are at the opposite sides of the city. The Lincoln Continental was the perfect car to get around while being super comfortable and feeling safe - it was so fun to drive! I especially loved the huge sun roof and the cooling feature in the seats - so good, and the elegant look of the car made it perfect for crusing around L.A.
We started the L.A Dream trip by picking up The Lincoln Continental and checking into The Beverly Hills Hotel (seriously in love with this hotel -the decor, the location, the pool, it is all so dreamy) and spent the evening in Venice, finishing off by eating at one of my favourite spots, Gjelina.
The next day we drove to Elite Helicopters and did what has been on my bucket list for ages - flew over L.A! We had the doors off (a crazy feeling!) and got to hang out above the Hollywood sign...such a surreal moment. It was so cool too to fly over Venice & Santa Monica and see people surfing and see the city from so high that I have driven around so much -It was definitely a highlight!
That night we got to tick off another dream of mine - Dinner at The Chateau Marmont. The hotel has such an amazing history, it felt so wild walking taking the elevator to the restaurant- and the food was delicious! It was the perfect way to end the day.
On our last day we drove to Paramount Ranch and got to ride the cutest horses through the beautiful Malibu Hills, and even got to see where they shot some of my favourite TV shows (Westworld) and movies (Django Unchained) -it was so beautiful!
After building up an appetite we drove to have lunch at Nobu Malibu (and turned on our massage feature in our seats in the Lincoln Continental on the way there to relax after horse riding!) and it was insanely delicious...and because it is right on water, so the view was perfect. After lunch we drove to my favourite place in Malibu, El Matador Beach, to put our toes in the ocean & relax before heading back into the hills to watch the sunset.
Before leaving we of course caught some rays by the beautiful Beverly Hills Hotel, and then drove to the airport to head back to reality. It was truly a dream! It was sad to leave our Lincoln Continental behind, it was such a beautiful car to drive and made our L.A adventure that much better by making the journey just as much fun as the destinations! I am excited for my next ride already.
