The city of Angels is the second largest city in the country and has a million things to offer. This place is full of entertainment adventures, starving artists, and actors waiting for their big break. On the one hand this sounds sad, but I’m a glass is half full kinda girl and the potentiality found in L.A. is very intriguing. There are so many people from so many backgrounds I’d love to meet. Here are the top six things I’d like to see on a trip to Los Angeles.
- Hollywood Walk of Fame: Of course this is on the list! Can someone visit L.A. without seeing the Walk of Fame? There are so many celebrities across media platforms and history with stars on the Walk. Although I’d love to see all of the stars a few I would specifically look for are Julie Andrews (because I’m definitely Mary Poppins), Morgan Freeman (because he’s always the God figure in film), and Audrey Hepburn (because she’s iconic).
- Hollywood Sign: Again, can’t make a trip without this stop. There are three hiking trails of various skill levels and lengths. I’m no pro hiker, especially considering I live in the flattest part of the county. But I love a challenge, plus dogs are welcome!
- TCL Chinese Theatre: I’ve seen this place in movies like Iron Man 3 and Rush Hour and it looks like fun. The theatre is real movie theater, not just a set for filming. It opened in 1927, and the coolest thing is a 30 foot dragon carved in stone. How crazy is that!
- Cathedral of Our Lady of the Angels: The architectural style of this cathedral is postmodern. I think it looks cold with peculiar light fixtures, and I don’t see the tabernacle which makes me a very unhappy Catholic millennial. Regardless, one of the beautiful things about being Catholic is that we can all partake of the same Bread but have different preferences on where we worship. I know a couple of my brothers and sisters who would love this style of architecture and find my favorite style, Gothic revival, just creepy.
- Santa Monica Pier: This giant pier is world famous and has so many things to offer it would need a whole day dedicated to it. There is a trapeze school which sounds fun but also like something I’d chicken out of doing, so I’ll need an alpha type to challenge (not push) me to do it. There’s also a huge ferris wheel and double decker bus tours of famous L.A. landmarks.
- Griffith Observatory: The observatory is home to a planetarium, museum, and public telescope. They host star parties where the astronomically curious can meet and stargaze during dusk into the night.
Los Angeles is another one of those cities that I had a very hard time choosing only six things to do here. Hopefully I’ll have to opportunity to see the entertainment capital of the world and see a lot more than just these six things.
