Los Angeles, CA
I have to be honest, I visited LA once when I was much younger and didn't appreciate the sights as much as I do now. When one of my Denver friends moved back to her hometown, I couldn't help but find my way back to the land of sunshine, celebs, and beaches. We revisted some of the places I remembered as a teen, but this time I double downed on the city. Over an extended Memorial day weekend, we experienced Santa Monica, Hollywood Blvd, Venice Beach, the Griffith Observatory, Downtown LA, Santa Barbara, a helicopter rescue mission on Runyon Canyon, studio city, Beverly Hills, Marina Del Rey, El Segundo, and a great stretch of the ocean front during an epic Saturday bike ride. Needless to say, it was quite the memorable experience and was every bit of the LA life that I imagined it would be. Thank you for the wonderful hosting and tours Amanda. Until next time!
