5 Days Los Angeles Itinerary
I arrived in Los Angeles on the 13th of October in the evening (after more than 24 hours of traveling) and I went directly to my bed and slept until the next morning.
The next day, my boyfriend arrived from San Francisco and the adventure began! I was a little bit jetlagged so we didn’t force on the visiting. So our first day in Los Angeles was about the Hollywood Boulevard and other stuff situated there, such as the Walk of Fame, the Chinese Theater, the Dolby Theater, the Egyptian Theater and so on.
Then, we took the car and drove all the way to Beverly Hills, Rodeo Drive & Mulholland Drive, and its wonderful houses. We finished this wonderful day by eating a delicious Ramen in Koreatown and went to bed, very tired.
Day 2 was one of my favorites! My boyfriend took me to the Venice Canals and we walked all around the beautiful houses until we arrived at the beach. I insisted on the fact that I want to see the “Venice” sign so we walked there, passing by the Muscles Beach.
After our lunch at Tocaya Organica (see my last post about food spots), we drove to Santa Monica Pier and then, to Malibu Beach for the sunset. The lighting was just amazing and we took so many pictures! The golden hour in Los Angeles is definitely something special!
If you’re a fan of old movies or filmmaking, you have to visit all of the studios in Los Angeles! We spent our entire third day at the Universal Studios and we had so much fun! The attractions were great but it was also impressive to see Wisteria Lane in real life! Plus, since it wasn’t high season anymore, there was no waiting time at any attraction. It was one of the best experiences ever.
On day 4, we visited the Warner Bros Studios and it was even better than Universal. If you’re a fan of Friends, Gilmore Girls, Pretty Little Liars, Wonder Woman and so on, you’ll love it as much as I did. All of the sets are really impressive and all of the stories the guide tells are unbelievable!
After lunch, we drove once again to Santa Monica to enjoy a walk on the beach and on the Third Street Promenade. Then, we wanted to see the sunset from the Griffith Observatory but unfortunately, we were stuck in trafic and arrived at the Observatory a little bit too late but still, the view from the top was amazing!
Do you recognise the Central Perk?
On our last day in Los Angeles, we took a big smoothie bowl breakfast near the Hollywood Boulevard and drove to Melrose Avenue in order to see the typical vintage stores. We also wanted to find a nice “drive in” spot to eat lunch but it was too hard to find! So we decided to try typical American Donuts and we ended up at SK Donuts & Croissants and ordered 3 huge donuts (oops). Before leaving, we wanted to say goodbye to the beach and drove back to Santa Monica for the sunset!
