My LA Travel Guide

I've gone to LA for the past 3 spring breaks and I'd be lying if I said I didn't love it more and more each time I visited. Now that I have explored several different areas of the city, I've come up with a bunch of must dos, eats and places to shop. Check them out below! 

Rodeo Drive 
A must see for window shopping 

Santa Monica Promenade
Really fun to walk around and listen to live music at night.

Abbot Kinney
Super cute street of unique shops and little cafes. 

Melrose Place
Beautiful shops tucked away in Beverly Hills.

The Grove
Literally the prettiest outdoor mall I've ever seen in my life.

 Griffith Observatory
The most gorgeous view of LA you'll ever experience. (See above for proof.)

Paul Smith Pink Wall
Can you really go to LA without taking a picture in front of the pink wall?!

Santa Monica Pier
A fun afternoon activity if you're into rides and carnival food (and people watching!).

Hollywood set tour
I saw Ellen Degeneres leaving the parking lot. Enough said. 

Drive Highway 101
If you have a car this is definitely worth the trip. 

+ The Ivy
If this post doesn't say it all.... Literally the prettiest restaurant I've ever been to. 

Arguably the coolest dessert I've eaten - if you love gelato this is a must try!

Beverly Hills Hotel
Definitely go here for lunch by the pool one day. Green palm print allll day long. 

The Shutters
Delicious for brunch, lunch or dinner right on the water in Santa Monica. 

Blue Plate Taco
Absolutely delicious Mexican food with bomb guac, and it's right across from the Santa Monica pier.

I'm a little biased (#citrus) but if you like sweet lemonade, fresh food and macarons the size of your hand, 10/10 recommend. 

Feel free to shoot me an email at or comment below if you need more recommendations! 


  1. I need to go to LA. I've always wanted to try Lemonade. Urth Cafe also looks amazing.

  2. Living in LA I still haven't tried some of these yet! Will do though!!

  3. My sister and I have a trip planned this October (surprise trip for her birthday). I have overpacked our trip with way too many things to do in such a small amount of time!! I am so excited!
