In my last post I took my first ever solo trip to Philadelphia! Which was a nice little warm up to the beginning of my solo adventures this year but I knew I was ready to kick it up a notch. And this trip I had planned right here means the world to me…
MY SOLO TRIP TO LOS ANGELES baby!
If you’ve kept up with me on social media (__@melbae) last year I took my first ever trip to La La Land and I loved it. Loved it enough that I was officially convinced bicoastal living is a dream of mines that I really want to make a reality when the time is right. I spent quite a bit of time out there BUT I still had some places I wanted to visit, things I wanted to experience and this time I wanted to do it on my own. So being my typical spur of the moment self, I found a great deal via JetBlue and booked my birthday trip and needless to say… I was excited af!
Now let’s get into some of my favorite places that I visited:
Runyon Canyon Park
If you go to Los Angeles and don’t take a hike on Runyon, did you really even go? In Runyon Canyon Park you can find both LA natives & tourists hiking and getting their workout on while enjoying the beautiful scenery of the city! As a New Yorker, you don’t see mountains that’s just not a thing for us, so being out here and just soaking in all of the nature surrounding you really creates a spiritual moment. It reminds me why I love California, it provides a balance of both the peace of nature but when looking out into the distance you see the liveliness of the city just waiting for your return.
Runyon Canyon is of course FREE to enter and open from dawn to dusk!
