Our Last Day Before I go on a trip anywhere, I create a Google Map and add in any recommendations, places I’ve spotted online or things I want to do in that particular city. That way, without knowing a place, I can get an idea of the areas I’d like to visit – the places with the most little stars dotted around. In LA, those stars were kind of all over the place, so I had to narrow it down a little to areas that we could get to fairly easily, and that would be doable on foot once we were there. One area that stood out as having a few places on my hitlist was the Arts District in Downtown LA. After a lazy morning at the hotel we hopped in a car through DTLA to the Arts District to have a look around. Whilst a lot of DTLA doesn’t look worth a trip, there’s a little pocket that does have some great cafes, restaurants, bars and shops. There was a local market on the day we passed by, so we took a look around before wandering the rest of the area. There is street art aplenty here, so if you’re a colour lover, it’s worth noting! It’s also home to the Museum of Ice Cream, which we happened upon as we were walking by (the pink walls pulled me closer), but unfortunately the tickets are completely sold out for entirety of it’s time in LA. Once we’d had lunch at the Pie Hole (we ate a lot of pie, more on that soon) we decided to sack off the rest of the day in the city and head to Disneyland instead. The only Disney park I’d not been to in the states was California Adventure, so we made the most of Miguel’s entrance passes (he’s a Disney employee!) and spent the rest of our day there, camera put away in my backpack for the rest of the trip (because do you really need another Disney post from me?) My next post will be a list of places we shopped and ate during our time in LA – so sit tight for some recommendations! x What I Wore… Dress – Zara | Jacket – ASOS | Shoes – Converse | Sunglasses – Elizabeth & James (similar) The post DTLA appeared first on WishWishWish.
