Day 82: La La land Day Trips

Los Angeles, CA. aka City of Angels

Today my good friend and fellow traveler flew out today from LAX to travel to NYC. Nothing can complete the Ultimate West Coast Trip without seeing a little bit of Los Angeles.

With only a couple of hours to explore, drove right into the most famous sites in LA. In the summer I usually take my exchange students through the same itinerary! So.. if you are a first time I suggest you check out these places when you come!
