Best days @ Universal Studios Hollywood
We had the best experience at Universal Studios Hollywood. The rides were amazing and so much fun. The Super Mario brothers at the Super Mario World remind me of my childhood days when I would spend my entire Saturday afternoon playing that old mario game with my Dad. It's a dream come
true for me. We got express passes and true to its name, everything was indeed express there were no waiting times. Bravo! There are a lot of food to choose from. The staff were all friendly and nice. My nieces had a lot of fun including us, adults. We'll definitely come back to experience more fun in the future.
Griffith Observatory Travel Recommendations for 2023 (Updated in Dec)
A Visit to Griffith Observatory
Griffith Observatory is located at 2800 E Observatory Rd., Los Angeles, California 90027
It is an Art Deco stargazing spot atop Mount Hollywood in Griffith Park. For those astronomy enthusiasts or who are interested in stargazing is one of the best spot.
The Griffith Observatory#GriffithObservatory is one of the most visited observatories in the world with various reasons. Beside arts and stargazing, the view of Hollywood sign from here with the photogenic views is where many visitors as well.
Of course, Griffith Observatory's main draw, though the free entry was certainly a bonus. A fee of between $6 and $10 to see the planetarium shows is worth it if you happen to be there too.

Getting There - By own vehicle

Best Viewing Spot in LA
Griffith Observatory is a planetarium & astronomy museum, and is a great free thing to do in Los Angeles, California. It’s also great for hikes with excellent panoramic views of the Hollywood Sign, Downtown L.A., and Pacific Ocean on clear days.
Griffith Observatory was built to make astronomy accessible to the public, and compete with some of the best mountaintop observatories already existing along the West Coast. Inside the exhibit area of Griffith Observatory today, you can see comparisons to some of these observatories today.
If you have never been to Griffith Observatory, it is a must-visit place . It is amazing day or night.
address: 2800 East Observatory Road
Los Angeles, CA 90027
not going to lie, we drove to griffith after visiting the renowned Hollywood sign, which you are able to see from Griffith. parking lots were plenty however it is a popular attraction hence might need to spend time finding parking.
free admission with lots to see if you’re into telescope and stuff. this place is one of the few in the world that still produces exclusively live planetarium shows if you like such stuff.
also, because of how central it’s located and because it’s up the hill, it’s located at a good spot where you can oversea the skyline of LA. beautiful.
do check for operating hours. HIGHLY RECOMMEND if you’re in LA.

Wonderful Santa Monica
What a wonderful place to visit. Lively attraction, full of entertainment with so many fun activities nearby happening. We spent a couple hours there and enjoyed the sunset very much. At sunset don't miss to go to the end of the boardwalk to watch that sunset and you can get your coffee from many coffeshop around you.
There are a variety of food and drink options and many vendors providing custom gifts along the pier.
It is great for all ages as there is a theme park for the kids.

California 1 Travel Recommendations for 2023 (Updated in Dec)
California 1 State Route 1
It is the mother of all roads. Impressive as the road links the ocean with the mountains and the forest. Views more magnificent than each other. It is a road to do slowly and enjoy this magical moment.#naturalwonders
The majority of California's Highway One covers the coastline, with mountains on one side and the sea on the other. To get to Los Angeles, we suggest that you drive from the north to the south. This route hugs the coastline. Scenic attractions along the way include the Golden Gate Bridge, Half Moon Bay and Pigeon Point Lighthouse. You can admire the ocean, as well as giant boulders and seabirds, on your journey.
The United States
This cliff swing is very dangerous, with the children not recommending it, there is no place to help, so I sent my father to look at it, we look at the cliff, three swings, three big door holes, the first largest The graffiti on the swing is very colorful, a lot of smiles [happy], and these graffiti will change constantly. It seems that some people have specially maintained it. When we go, it is still a bit cold. If you can sit on a swing in the summer, meet the waves. Its very sensation when you take a photo.
The world's most beautiful self-driving road - California Highway No.1, beautiful scenery, all seasons. Also known as the Pacific Coast Highway, connecting the San Francisco and Los Angeles from north to south, it is 276 miles long. The mountain road is winding and winding, and the verdant mountains are endless, with steep cliffs and stunning waves. Bring your own lover and cat and drive as you like.

Glamour, Charm and Shine - Hollywood Street
Hollywood is one of the most famous place in Los Angeles. There are many famous things to do in Hollywood from taking photo with famous Hollywood Sign and Star walk of fame. Getting souvenirs from one of the many shows on the street and getting photo clicked with many characters from the movies who dressed up exactly like the movie characters to if lucky can spot a Celebrity itself on the Hollywood street. In evening street gets busy and crowded and looks very nice. People from different backgrounds and races walk on the same street making it look amazing. #hollywood #losangeles #traveling #travelusa
