How to Slay LA | What to Do in LA for the Weekend

Los Angeles in just two days? Challenge accepted. 

I had a work trip that took me to San Francisco (heyyy sunny Cali, bye cold New York City) for about a week. The trip left just enough time for me to take a long weekend in the City of Angels. Why not? I had never been and thought this would be the perfect time to explore some uncharted territory. A fabulous friend that lives in NYC has spent some time in LA and met me on the west coast for a long weekend. She took me to so many places (well our Uber drivers did) and we covered all that you'll want to see and do if you have a few days on the west coast. 

Day 1:

The Hollywood sign
Put on your cute athleisure wear and hike up towards the Hollywood Sign. On your way up you will see expansive views and beautiful hills. I suggest bringing a backpack or over the shoulder bag so that both hands a free for impromptu Instagrammable moments (there will be lots).

Capitol Records & the Hollywood walk
After the Hollywood sign, take an Uber to Capitol records the walk the walk of stars. You won't need to spend too much time on this street because it's a bit run down and touristy but it brings me to the next must do...

In-N-Out Burger
Less than $4 you can get bangin cheeseburger and for a few more dollars add the fries. I am not an advocate for fast food by any means but this is fast food minus the indigestion. Idk how LA does it but they somehow manage to make their fast food somewhat healthy(ish)

Melrose Avenue 
Want a picture for your IG with wings and a pink wall? Stroll down Melrose. Make sure you bring shades and have your bestie to snap a few. This avenue has an artsy and eclectic vibe and is perfect for a chill afternoon.

Abbot Kinney Blvd
So if you're doing it right, it should be about dinnertime. Do yourself a favor an head to The Butchers Daughter for dinner. Super heath conscientious, you'll find kale salads to delicious pizza and of course some crisp vino.

Pretty close to The Butcher's Daughter is this kitschy gay bar, Roosterfish. It attracts all kinds of people so chat up a beautiful stranger over a cool cocktail to warm up the night. 

Squeeze your way into this huge space and drool over more beautiful people. Good luck making your way through the game room, main bar, outside deck, state room and study. 

Day 2

The Rose 
Sleep in just little but be sure to wake up to enjoy brunch at The Rose in Venice. Lots of amazing selections but you are doing yourself a disservice if you don't get the Korean Fried Chicken Sandwich. Oh. My. God. 

The Venice Canals 
Modeled after the canals in Venice, Italy enjoy the quaint path and cross over bridges with your bestie.

The Beaches
Of course, the main attractions Venice and Santa Monica. Take you pick or go to both while you sit and soak up the vast sun with a smile of your face. Don't forget to put on Tupac's California Love while you're staring at the ocean waves. 

Get cute and head to this chic spot in West Hollywood for some nightlife. Boomerang a cheers while sipping a cocktail because you just slayed LA.
