You hop off the plane at LAX with a dream and 24 hours. To make the most out of your Golden State scene, we’ve designed the perfect itinerary (outside of spotting celebs in their natural habitat) to take you from dawn ‘til dawn.
Rawberri is every Pinterest girl’s dream: Hanging chairs in the windows, palm leaf wallpaper from floor to ceiling, and a sign that says “Good Vibes Only.” Grab an açaí bowl (naturally dairy and gluten-free) or try CocoWhip, a vegan coconut water-based soft serve, to fuel your day.
Want in on LA locals’ secret to looking so hot? Hint: it’s not Botox. Ok, maybe it is, but if you’re looking for a more natural approach, Lagree Fitness is your answer. This 50-minute, full-body workout is done on a Megaformer which resembles some sort of torture device but promises to tone and lean the muscles.
Lace up your tennies and bring your H2O. Take a hike to check out the iconic Hollywood Sign that dates back to 1923. On your way up, swing by the Griffith Observatory (admission is FREE!) for insane A+ views of DTLA. All the Insta likes will make the 4.5-mile trek totally worth it.
This may shock you, but celebrities are just like us – they eat. Gigi Hadid, Vanessa Hudgens and Joe Jonas flock to this neighborhood café for more than just your mediocre lunch. Coffee is notoriously strong, people watching is on point, and the Eggs Benedict is the best we’ve ever had.
Cozy leather couches, fire pits, ping pong, and even a hammock – the Bungalow immediately gives you the feeling of being in your friend’s backyard. Get the “Bitchin’ Sangria” because it’s, well, bitchin’ (and boozy).
Don’t be fooled by the legit hardware store sign outside – this popular West Hollywood eatery and bar is amazing AF. Snagging a table on the gorgeous patio is an absolute must, and ordering the Lollipop Sprouts is a requirement. Sip on the Bye Felicia (Cruzan Rum, Rum Chata, pineapple, lemon & cinnamon dust) – it’s like vacation in your mouth.
Liquid courage + Whitney Houston lyrics = #snapchatgold. Take the stage at karaoke spot the Blind Dragon and unleash your vocals that are normally reserved for the shower. Not ready for your big break? Sit back and keep watch for A-listers. Kendall Jenner, Cara Delevingne and Miley Cyrus have all been spotted here.
