Los Angeles Part 2
Earlier in the week, I talked about the first part of our trip in Los Angeles. You can check it out here. Our next full day we went to the Getty Museum. It was up in the hills with gorgeous views of all of LA. The museum has a very large collection of art which was interesting to see, but we were more interested in the actual building which was designed by Richard Meier. It was beautifully done with complimenting materials, several outdoor patios, and gorgeous gardens.
We could have spent hours walking around here. We really wanted to go to the cactus garden, but unfortunately, you could only view it from a terrace above so we headed to the other large garden. This one seriously did not disappoint. It was gorgeous. There was bougainvillea climbing all over, and tons of different colors of dahlias. The walkways were also framed with cute little arches with vines climbing on it. It was seriously picturesque and the smell was even better!
Later on in the day, we decided to get dressed up again and watch the sunset before heading to dinner. I can not tell you enough how beautiful these sunsets were and the weather was just amazing! We wanted to be outside at all times. Our hotel had a little rooftop patio so that night we decided to walk from up there instead of from the beach.
Watching the sunset is really one of my favorite things to do. To be honest, as long as I am near a beach I am happy! After our nightly routine, we headed to dinner in Santa Monica. We ate at Herringbone which was delicious and highly recommended. This restaurants decor was great as well, most places we went to were. There were little row boats with rope and lights hanging from them from the ceiling and had a very open indoor-outdoor feel. I had the crab cake and Kerianne had to the tuna. You do not want to miss this one!
Our last full day may have been the most fun! We got up, got dressed up and went to the Beverly Hills Hotel for breakfast. It would be a dream to stay there one day. It was amazing. First off I was obsessed with the decor. It felt very 1950's, but also girly and tropical with banana palm wallpaper. I could've stayed there all day. Breakfast was even better than I imagined. Kerianne and I kept saying that we felt like we were having a real-life grown-up tea party. I ordered the eggs benedict and Kerianne got the blueberry pancakes. The eggs benedict was great but oh my gosh those pancakes were like dessert.
After our amazing breakfast, we had to walk off our very full bellies. So naturally, we did a little shopping, but not just any shopping. We went to Rodeo Drive. We needed to get the full Los Angeles experience and I would say we did! Now I say we went shopping, but it was more like browsing and starring at all the beautiful very expensive jewelry and handbags. We were heaven.
Overall it was a really fun trip and we really felt like we saw a lot of Los Angeles. Of course I couldn't incluse it al and we certainly did not see it all, but it is definitely a place I would recommend going and hope to go back to again some day!
