A colourful fisherman’s village in LA
Fisherman’s village is a cute shopping area and boating dock that is located in Marina Del Rey, Los Angeles. It is built in the New England style and dates back to 1967, it has recently been made famous as the location for the ‘banana stand’ in the netflix comedy Arrested Development.
It is a cute little area with lots of different colour buildings built around a lighthouse, it offers sweeping views of the marina and various food and drink options. There are a few sit down restaurants with views or you can get some take away snacks and use some of the public seating areas.
There is often live music in the area or it’s a great place to watch the various boats coming in and out of the marina. Depending on the season you can see the 4th of July fireworks, boating parades or the various rowing teams from LA universities practicing in the water.

The Infamous Santa Monica, Los Angeles
Santa Monica is an iconic beachside town in Los Angeles, California. It is famous for being the setting for countless films, tv shows and music videos - you will definitely recognize the ferris wheel at the end of the pier.
Santa Monica has plenty of shops and restaurants and a cute little old town, it has a more relaxed vibe compared to other shopping areas of Los Angeles and is a lot more pedestrianized. Moving towards the coast Santa Monica has one of the longest and cleanest beaches in the county and the water is calm enough for swimming and relaxing. If you look up the coast you can see as far as Malibu to the north and the Airport to the south.
There is also the famous pier which is the western start / terminus of the famous route 66, you will see the road signs along the end of the pier. There are lots of amusements, cafes and snack shops and of course the ferris wheel!
It’s a good spot to head to at different times of the day, it’s quieter in the morning for sure but the night with everything lit up makes it so special so worth checking out both times to feel the different vibes.

A fascinating glimpse at the origins of LA
El Pueblo de Los Angeles historical monument is the oldest part of the city of Los Angeles and was it’s heart during Mexican, Spanish and early American rule. Directly opposite Union Station in downtown the area is a state monument and designated historic place. The area is made up of large plazas surrounded by buildings dating back to 1800, there are small streets radiating off them selling all kinds of food, gifts and clothes. There are beautiful flowers, trees and cactai lining the streets and it makes you feel like you’re a whole world away from the bustle of a modern American city.
It’s a great place to take your time and explore the details of these buildings, they are well preserved and many have pieces of art or murals that give fascinating details of the areas history.
It is one of my favourite places for food in Los Angeles with the ability to mix snacks from street vendors with flavorful meals from the many cafes and restaurants on the streets.
If you come you have to try the churros and snowcones, the best I’ve had by far!

Hollywood adventure time
Located in Disneyland resort, this theme park is actually right next door the Disneyland itself. It is called Disney Adventure Park and there are so many zones with fun-filled adventure rides for pretty much any age. One of the kid-friendly zones is the Disney playhouse, where there are very low-intensity rides and even activities like drawing and colouring to engage them.
I love how there is also an emphasis on music and famous musicians here too! There is even a jazz kitchen as a tribute to the genre. Later in the evening, there will also be a light parade so be sure to catch a good spot for that.
My overall rating of the experience: 4 out of 5 stars ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️

Theme park for everyone
Address - Disneyland Park, 1313 Disneyland Drive, Anaheim, Los Angeles, California 92802, United States Of America
If you are travelling to Los Angeles in the United States, this is one attraction you cannot afford to miss. This is the original version of the very first Disneyland and is as authentic as it gets.
There is a nice mixture of ride intensities, with some being highly thrilling but most of them are actually very kid-friendly. Not to mention the Disney parade at the end of the day culminating in a firework showcase. Fun day!
My overall rating of the experience: 4 out of 5 stars ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️

A marvellous evening on top of LA…
The sky lounge restaurant in one of the tallest skyscrapers in DTLA…
Enjoy a cozy moment to watch the sunset with the desert vibrancy cools down with the metropolitan neons lighten up the city.
Chill as well as magical.
71Above serves an absolutely great wine pairing dinner menu and has a really nice collection of wine lists.
Foods are wonderful, services are professional, atmosphere just fits right in.

I love Disney! I know this is suppose to be a children place but one must admit it is truly the happiest place on earth. I have been to Disney Tokyo and Hong Kong. This round was my first time come here - Disneyland in Anaheim, California. I was thrilled to visit this original Disneyland Park. Everything was spotless, entrance line moved quickly and without delays, and the foods found in the park were exceptional. It was definitely a wonderful experience. I highly recommend the place.

City of Angels
No trip to Beverly Hills is complete without a walk down Rodeo Drive. Heard about it for years on tv since I was young. It is a special place and has to be shopped once. Many luxury shops and restaurants. Very pricey but very nice. I got my Tiffany & Co bangle being fixed there.
Great for watching the expensive cars through which seem to cruise around.
Beautiful place to just walk around and window shop. Of course taking a picture on the street of rodeo and the Beverly Hills sign are a must!

The Great Taco Llama!
This is easily one of my favorite places to eat in the San Fernando Valley of Los Angeles.
The staff is always helpful and kind to customers and not to mention but the food is absolutely AMAZING!!
If you are looking for authentic Mexican food with all the sauce and trimmings THIS is the place you go.
Inside of the restaurant, there is art everywhere and one can definitely feel the culture that they so proudly come from and the food symbolizes.
The prices$$ are reasonable too and not expensive enough to break a budget or ruin a touristic holiday.
If you love food and you need a special taco or burrito well made with good service, you should come here!
10/10 easily recommend one of my favorite restaurants!
The address is located on the menu picture so just type it into your gps but for those that can’t, the address is:

The Van Nuys Flyaway LA California 🇺🇸
The Van Nuys Flyaway is right across from the Van Nuys Airport located in the San Fernando Valley of Southern California and is one of the best forms of transport to get to the major LAX airport in Los Angeles.
They have buses that one can book a ticket for at $9.75 one way or even double that price for round trip plus extra for parking. It is extremely convenient and a well kept secret by locals.
Many working in the area or tourists will use the Van Nuys Flyaway in order to go back and forth to LAX frequently because it is extremely reliable.
If you happen to be a tourist, please use this feature to go back and forth as it will save so much time and money going to and from the LAX airport in Southern California.

Stunning, marvelous modern art experiences
The Broad is a contemporary art museum on Grand Avenue in Downtown Los Angeles. The museum is named for philanthropists Eli and Edythe Broad, who financed the $140 million building that houses the Broad art collections. It offers free general admission to its permanent collection galleries. However, not all of its events are free and admission prices may vary by exhibit and or by event. It opened on September 20, 2015
The Broad houses a nearly 2,000-piece collection of contemporary art featuring 200 artists, including works by Cindy Sherman, Jeff Koons, Ed Ruscha, Roy Lichtenstein and Andy Warhol, including a 1963 "Single Elvis" by the latter. The museum suggested in 2015 that it was acquiring the "Single Elvis", which sent the prices of pop art to unprecedented levels.

Classic diner with great food
Although Mel's Drive In is a chain, its Hollywood location is absolutely a gem. Located in a classic setting, the diner whisks you back to the 50s and 60s with its retro interior.
Food options are plenty and you'll be greeted with classic diner options. The food is delicious and the service is friendly and familiar.
If you're looking for something a bit different yet still same, head over to this All American dinner for some nice food and vibes. It especially stands out amongst Hollywood's often bland and uninspiring sea of restaurants.

Manhattan Beach in Los Angeles, California
I went to Manhattan Beach in Los Angeles, California.
THIS BEACH IS AMAZING IN MANY WAYS 💖
-It has an aquarium at the end of the pier that is free.
-Underneath the pier is unique and is a great place to take beautiful photos.
-Watching the sunset from this beach is a beautiful experience.
WHAT I DID NOT LIKE ABOUT THIS BEACH
- It was too crowded. During the time that I went it was very packed.
-It was too difficult to walk up and down from the beach. You have to walk down a giant slanted walkway to get to the beach. Climbing back up the horizontal walkway is extremely difficult.
-There are no affordable restaurants nearby. All the restaurants are expensive near Manhattan Beach.
