LAST STOP, RODEO DRIVE

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

It’s no doubt this trip to LA was short, but we jammed packed as many activities as we could while there. One being the obligatory visit to the famous Roscoe’s Chicken and Waffles, and of course Rodeo Drive. It was nice seeing my big bro. I think we’ll be back again because as far as taking in the attractions, we barely scratched the surface.

By the way, people drive Beamers, Benz, Bentley’s, Ashton Martin’s and Bugatti’s like it’s nothing out here. Meanwhile, back in NC, I’m just trying to make it to Friday with my 10 dollars of gas in my 2013 Prius, LOL.

Well, ladies and gentlemen, this completes my tour of Hollywood. Till next time LA.

LA MUSEUM OF THE HOLOCAUST

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

I’ve been meaning to chat with you about my trip the Los Angeles Museum of the Holocaust. While there are so many things to do in LA, time was limited and I wanted to make sure I could get in as many museums as possible. This trip was free and educational, two of my favorite things!

Managed to get to the museum right around lunch time with big bro and the hubby. They give you headsets as most of the museum literature is audio. Each station of the museum discusses different topics related to the Holocaust by simply pushing a few numbers on your Ipod you can educate yourself on the topic of your choice. We met a pretty amazing family while wandering the museum. She told us her dad was in a concentration camp and that she comes to visit the museum to pay her respects and to remember this time in history. It was great to hear her story. My brother was a bit emotional and couldn’t finish the tour. While this might not be the first place you’d want to visit for a fun time in LA, it was educational, eye opening and worth the time to remember the history. I enjoyed this visit and recommend everyone take a trip here and get a history lesson or two. It’s free admission and the staff are so friendly.

I have one last post about my time in LA. Stay tuned for our Rodeo Drive adventures!

TRIP TO THE GRIFFITH OBSERVATORY

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

We took a free trip to outer space while in LA visiting my big brother, The Griffith Observatory to be exact. If your looking for some fun, educational, and free things to do in LA, The Griffith Observatory is where it’s  at. The museum is nestled at the very top of a hill in LA. There were so many people visiting it was ridiculous. I think my favorite part about this visit was the view of LA from the top. I could literally see everything and had an amazing view of the Hollywood sign. The museum was full of information about the different planets, stars, and random facts about space, and we even found a really cool spot to weigh ourselves and see how much we would weigh on the moon. Like everyday we spent in LA, it was cold, rainy and crowded, but it was refreshing to be in a crowd of people that were just as touristy as me, walking around with an obnoxiously huge Nikon camera snapping pics of the most unnecessary things. Yup, I’m that tourist guys, LOL.

Our museum adventures didn’t end here. I’ll be blogging about our trip to the Los Angeles Museum of the Holocaust later in the week. Stay tuned.

Happy week!
