I am getting so excited… we are heading to California (and Nevada!) next weekend! We have plans to stay at Zan’s sister’s house in Orange County the first weekend we’re there. We’ll hopefully go to Newport Beach and spend some time with family. We are up for anything and everything they want to show us! At the beginning of the week, we’ll be driving out to Vegas — with plans to stop at Joshua Tree (and maybe Palm Springs?) and Valley of Fire State Park. We will be in Las Vegas on Tuesday because Zan has to spend the day there for work and I am going to visit the Neon Museum and hopefully get my fill of In-N-Out. YUM! I have been dreaming of this since forever. The last part of our week away will be spent in LA. We are staying at the ACE hotel and I know there is a MILLION things to see but we are going to try to focus on exploring Venice and Downtown LA. And possibly Silverlake if we’re lucky! I have never been to this part of the West Coast before so I am just really excited to experience anything I can.
Do you have any tips for any of the places I mentioned? Favorite shops or food spots or areas that you think we’d like to see? I always love hearing what other people love. I have been scouring the internet and Pinterest nightly. One of my favorite ways to plan a trip away!
Here are some guides I’ve stumbled upon thus far:
