First off, be sure to check out my first guest post over at The Vintage Apple!! I was so thrilled when Miss Michelle asked me to do a post while she was soaking up the sun/celebrity stalking in LA this week! I love that girl and her blog...you will too!
It is quite ironic that Michelle is in LA because my husband and I are going to LA next month! We have been itching for a weekend getaway and haven't been anywhere since our honeymoon in February. The year before we got married we took lots of little trips...Las Vegas, Chicago, Denver, Tahoe...but then had to save up vacation time for our week long honeymoon. With the help of cheap Southwest tickets (and Rapid Rewards points), we are able to travel more often without spending much at all. We have a couple places on the US map we want to go within the next year or so and LA is one of them. We found a great deal and decided to go for it!
The weather in LA is a good 25-30 degrees lower than here in Austin...we are counting down the days! So now I need your help. I haven't been to LA in years and we would love recommendations on what to do. Of course I want to do the celebrity house tours and every single website says they are a crock (booooo). So help a girl out!
- Where should we eat? We aren't fancy dine-ers at all and love local, dive-y places
- What should we do? Bus tours, walking tours, museums (not the boring kind!)?
- Where should we go? Venice Beach, Chinese Theater, Ripleys Believe It Or Not?
- Where can I find celebrities? I am hoping we can shimmy our way into the Kardashian's Dash store...how cool would that be?!
