A recent whirlwind trip to LA saw me dipping my toes into this amazing, huge, virtually unfathomable city. Now let me say to start, 4 days is just not enough in such a diverse and enormous city, but armed with a few tips from local friends, I definitely gave it a good shot! This is definitely a very quick guide, but i wanted to share with you the things I did and liked this time around. Enjoy!
A Quick Guide To LA
I stayed at The Line hotel which was great (although v noisy in the lower levels), but would also look about staying at The Ace, The Standard and even The Beverley Hills hotel (if I felt like splashing out on a bit of old school glamour).
Head to The Broad gallery (make sure to head there early or buy tickets).
Hike up to the Griffith Observatory (uber down).
Spend a day in Silverlake – there are about 4-5 blocks along Sunset Blvd in Silver Lake, with lots of great cafes, restaurants and shops including Intelligensia, Night Market + Song and Squirl for eats and ReForm School, Mohawk General Store and Clare Vivier.
Check out the store Alchemy Works (they have a taco tuck 10 – 2 on Friday’s)
Buy all the dresses at the Reformation store.
Have a window show at The Apartment by The Line.
Get your nails did at gorgeous salon Olive & June.
Have dinner/rooftop drinks at The Ace.
Have a delicious breakfast at Squirl, don’t leave without buying some of their famous jam.
Head to Egg Slut in Grand Central Market – lots of other amazing places to eat here too.
Have a healthy lunch at Cafe Gratitude.
Wander the shops on Abbott Kinney (a street in Venice), stopping by Salt & Straw and having dinner at Gjelina’s, if you can get in!
