THE CITY OF ANGELS.
CALIFORNIA - THE WEST COAST - TUPAC - HOLLYWOOD - BEVERLY HILLS - MOVIES - VENICE BEACH -
The usual stuff you see in movies, the stuff you hear about on the radio and in songs, or from your friends who have visited LA before. My first visit to L.A came in April of 2012 when the opportunity arose to spend a week there. But before I get into the details let me share some cool info!
My airline ticket to Los Angeles, California - Non Stop round trip flight only cost me...
😱 how!? D E L T A S K Y M I L E S my friends, jump on those rewards now! there are other programs other than delta and some are better so be sure to shop around first.
I guess i want to clear up the fact that movies and songs and radio really ruin the experience for people, i mean i thought L.A was this super crazy celebrity city, where you see movie stars everywhere! and music videos and movies being made on every corner. L.A is super cool, but unless you're living the lavish life, don't expect your experience to be like the movies. Or maybe you're just crazy and you can pull it off.
The View from the 11th floor facing south towards Downtown L.A was amazing, and to the NorthWest you can see Hollywood. It was such a soothing experience to stand on the balcony, with the cool spring breeze, clear skies and a beautiful L.A skyline (although nothing like New York city 😛)
Hollywood Blvd... be careful! you'll get bombarded by wannabe rappers, if they hand you a CD, DO NOT TAKE THAT SHHH...!!!! - i learned the hard way, haha. Too many tourists! the hollywood stars are kind of cool, the Chinese theatre is cool to look at for like 5 sec. But then you have the usual Darth Vaders and Dora the explorer or the elmos, just trying to make some money, but they look annoying out there. If you're out there long enough its funny to just see how they interact with people, sometimes they fight each other... crazy..
take a TOUR BUS TOUR!!! totally worth it!, act like you don't want it and the people will give you a discounted rate lol.
hard rock cafe was pretty cool, we ate there twice, and i ate there again on my second trip to L.A.
Rent a car, but be sure to call the location first and make sure they have the car you book online, on the lot because, when you go pick up that "Audi" you thought you rented, you'll end up with a big a$$ ford truck...
Drive around beverly hills, and rodeo drive and drive up the coast to Malibu!
Buy something! i bought, hands down the best jeans i have ever bought in my life! while on vacation in L.A!
SANTA MONICA PIER IS A MUST! AND VENICE BEACH IS JUST A SHORT 10-15MIN WALK! ALTHOUGH VENICE BEACH IS A BIT SHADY, ITS PRETTY COOL.... I SAW A GIRL BEAT UP A GUY...
Ride the Rides at Santa Monica, sit on the bench and enjoy the view of the Pacific! makes me want to fly out to japan.
Taking a Taxi? CAREFUL, THEY ARE SUPER EXPENSIVE! my most expensive ride was nearly 60$
GO TO CHIC-FILA and/ or IN-OUT burger, even though i never had IN-OUT, i wish i did!
Drive up the hills! you get a great view
LAST BUT NOT LEAST, YOU NEED TO CHECK OUT MELROSE! A GREAT SHOPPING AREA, TONS OF GREAT STORES...TONS! AND I SAW SIRUS FROM THE REAL WORLD...
