Los Angeles is one of my favorite cities on earth. The warmth, the breathtaking natural landscape, and the healthy way of life are just a few things that make LA such a special place. And, even better than living in LA is staycationing in LA. Read on to discover my must-see places when looking for a relaxing weekend in the City of Angels.
WHERE TO STAY
Is there really anything more quintessentially LA than the Beverly Hills Hotel? I think not. Be sure to grab lunch at the Polo Lounge and ask for a seat on the patio.
Take the time to drive up the coast to Malibu. Even if you don’t have a set plan, the stunning ocean and cliff views are definitely worth the trip. Another one of my favorite spots to explore is Venice, particularly Abbot Kinney Boulevard. Full disclosure: I might be biased because this street, lined with the cutest boutiques and eateries, abuts my favorite grocery store of all time (Erewhon), which is a destination in itself for me.
WHERE TO SHOP
In no apparent order, my LA shopping holy grails include: Melrose Place, Rodeo Drive, Century City, Malibu Country Mart, and The Grove.
WHERE TO WORKOUT
LA is chock-full of new and innovative workout spots. If you want to try something different, hit up Rise Nation. If you’re into hot yoga to hip beats, try Y7.
