|technically, not in Los Angeles, but so close!|
We'll head east into uncharted territory soon enough, but for now, let's keep the city search on the West Coast, shall we? I've been to Los Angeles, California a few times, and although I'm not a huge fan, I am open to the possibility that awesomeness can be found there. Personally, I'd prefer to keep driving another 30 (or so) minutes south into Orange County to visit The Happiest Place on Earth*, but perhaps that's simply because I don't know much about LA. I've never been to any of the following, and I think these spots seem quite charming:
- Santa Monica Pier
- Third Street Promenade
- Griffith Observatory
- Venice Beach
- La Brea Tar Pits and The Natural History Museum
- Rose Bowl Flea Market
Oh dear, it seems I've never eaten a proper doughnut in Los Angeles! In fact, I don't have any food-related memories of LA at all. Help me, folks!
Know of any yummy doughnut shops in the greater LA area? Or any other cool spots besides the obviously touristy ones mentioned above? There must be some treasures located in The City of Angels, right?
*I am not kidding when I say, should I move to Los Angeles, I will purchase an annual passport. And I will not hesitate to regularly stop by New Orleans Square for a beignet breakfast or drop by Main Street at nightfall for some Gibson Girl and the fireworks show.
