As a present to my cousin, my family gave her a ticket to L.A. When I asked her what she wanted to see/do, she responded with "everything and anything." I took that opportunity to hit places on my to-do list as well as re-visit some old favorites. The weekend flew by, just like every other weekend seems to these days, but it was so wonderful.
Stay: My old place in North Hollywood (more on my move later)
Visit: Solstice Canyon (great little hike with a view of the ocean), Point Dume State Beach, The Grove (for shopping), Melrose Trading Post (check out local artists and vintage booths), the Venice Canals, Abbot Kinney Blvd. (start at Venice and keep walking to find the cutest shops and tastiest restaurants)
Eat: Gracias Madre (some of the best Mexican food I've had and it's vegan), John's Garden (great place to refuel after hiking), Zinque (coffee/wine bar that reminded me of a Parisian cafe)
If anyone has anymore L.A. recommendations send them my way!
With Love, Kristtyn
