Travel Blog: L.A.

Taking a trip to the West Coast anytime soon? One of our birds, Tatum, created some must-see places in Los Angeles! Check it out below.

Stop One: Rancho Palos Verdes

If you go to California and don’t see the beach, I’m going to assume you’re a robot. My first stop in the LA area was the beautiful cliffs of Rancho Palos Verdes. There’s truly nothing like driving past million dollar houses and day-dreaming about living there one day. If you can, sneak away to one of the visitor lots and whale watch (I saw two humpback whales, and it’s not even migrating season)!

Stop Two: The Happy Place Museum 

This one is on a time crunch, as it’s a pop-up museum, but they have these sort of exhibits all year-round! Think of it as Instagram heaven. Every room you enter is a new backdrop for the perfect profile pic or boomerang on your Instagram Story. At the end of the museum, immediately head to their food truck for a RAINBOW. GRILLED. CHEESE. Need I say more?

Stop Three: Little Damage Ice Cream Parlor

Right in the middle of Downtown LA lies another Instagram famous location for their famous black-charcoal ice cream cone! I opted for the “Unicorn Tears” ice-cream with a charcoal cone (aka birthday cake ice-cream with a chocolatey cone)! This brings us to our fourth stop…

 

Stop Four: Perch Rooftop Bar

Guys. This was hands down the coolest part of my trip. Happy Hour on a rooftop overlooking Los Angeles during sunset?! It was in actual heaven. Enjoy affordable appetizers & cocktails (the Penicillin was my fav) with a celebrity status view. Enjoy!

Lastly - Make sure to help out our brothers & sisters struggling with the Southern California fires. Wondering how you can support the fire evacuees and fire department? Head to RedCrossLA.orgYouCaring.com, or SalvationArmy-SoCal.org
