I am the queen of boredom. It's really quite bad, but I so often find myself in a rut and looking for a way to change things up. I often forget that I am from a place that a lot of people travel to for fun. So how can I possibly be running out of things to do?!  One of my besties Tiffany (She's kinda a big deal on Vine, check her hilarious videos out) and I decided to make a bucket list of all the things that we somehow have not done, and want to do in LA this summer. Why not play tourist in our own backyard? Other people seem to like it. Of course I'm bringing all of you guys along for the ride with photos and reviews. Here's a list of things to get done in the next few months:


Drinks at the Chateau Marmount
Hike to the Hollywood Sign
Griffith Observatory
Dancing at the top of the W
Pool day at The Roosevelt or The Standard
Movie night at Hollywood Forever Cemetary
Hike Runyon Canyon

What else do you guys want to see and do?  Any other SoCal locals have an suggestions?


  1. fun list! my best friend lives in LA, so i can put these things on my list for next time i'm out there. we went hiking before but not sure if it was runyon? and she told me she just did a hitchock movie night at the cemetary and she loved it!

  2. I love LA so much! That's where I actually wanted to end up but got stuck in PA because I fell in love. Ugh! LOL

  3. Great list! I've never been to LA, so I would have a huge list as well! Have fun!
    Sincerely, Sara

  4. Love it! It's always interesting to look through your city through the eyes of a tourist. The first and only time I've been to LA (or the LA area) the husband and I went to Universal Studios (which..um...yeah no. LOL) and Venice Beach. Venice Beach was...colorful..to say the least.

  5. Love this idea! I've been putting a list together for my city lately too!

  6. Tourist in your own city is the best! How lucky for you to live in La La Land! Last time I was there I got kicked out of the Standard, hope you have better luck than I do! ;-)

  7. I do the same thing and I always tell myself - they're so much right at your fingertips!
    - Summer concerts at the pier are going on and are fun to go with a group of friends and sandwiches.
    - If you haven't been to the Getty Villa, you should check that out too. Really pretty and you can make a day of it around town.

    Always wanted to do drinks at the Chateau Marmont!
    Have fun exploring!

  8. I've actually done EVERYTHING on that list!! you've gotta go to the observatory! might I also suggest - a night at a comedy club (like the comedy store), or a picnic/concert @ the hollywood bowl?
