LA Trip Part 1

7:30 AM

Our LA adventure was a great one! It was fast-paced, entertaining and so much fun! We crammed so many things into our four days in California. Sit back and enjoy a recap of our West Coast adventure.

(This is part one of a two-part post) 

Courtney and I left town Friday afternoon headed for the Atlanta airport.We were ready for an adventure!

 We arrived to Los Angeles around 1 am Eastern time. Long day! Our hostess, Demetri, picked us and and we headed to her house in Venice. 

After unloading our bags and getting settled, we crashed.

We agreed that our traveling couldn't derail training for our half marathon. So after six hours of sleep, we got up and got moving. We had a nine-mile run ahead of us. The exciting part of the long run was that we had some beautiful scenery to take in during our run. We ran through Marina Del Rey, Playa Del Rey and ended our run at the Venice Boardwalk. 

Pretty cool if you ask me. It didn't change that fact that we were hot and tired, but it was a great way to knock out nine miles.

After breakfast and showers, we headed to Malibu to enjoy the beach. We had lunch at Paradise Cove Beach Cafe

Then spent time on the beach. It was HOT! We just thought we were leaving the heat behind in the south - not at all! 

Coop and I enjoyed a walk along the beach. We loved the beauty of the cliffs overlooking the ocean. So different from the Gulf of Mexico.

That night we had dinner at delicious tapas restaurant and called it a night. 

The second day took us into Hollywood and WeHo (West Hollywood). We saw lots of touristy spots and it was fun to see the celebrity attractions like the Chinese Theater and Hollywood Walk of Fame.  

We took a guided tour of Hollywood homes. It was fun to see how the rich and famous live. The tour also highlighted famous spots like the Beverly Hills Hotel, the Hollywood sign and Rodeo Drive.

After the tour we made a quick trip to Madame Tussauds wax museum. We had a blast. Who knew wax statues could be so entertaining?  

 What a great first day-and-a-half! Stay tuned for the second half of our LA Adventures...
