There are so many only-in-Los Angeles experiences, you’ll need to wake early and party late to try and fit them in to one day. In fact that would be impossible, but we'll award full points for trying and you can always sleep when you get home. Here’s just a taste of what you can pack into one day in the City of Angels.
Don your active wear and grab your mat, because it's time to stretch your limbs and limber up your mind at one of the city's free (or donation-based) yoga classes. Bryan Kest’s Power Yoga is a good one, with two locations in Santa Monica.
Head to the Original Farmer's Market where there’s plenty of breakfast options from French crêpes to gumbo, before strolling around the historic artisan market for that little treasure you can’t live without (note on Sunday's it opens an hour later at 10:00am).
A great day in Los Angeles would not be complete without a trip to the beach, but for those on a schedule that doesn't allow for the hour roundtrip from Santa Monica, Topanga State Beach is easily doable.
Grab lunch from one (or more) of Los Angeles' famous food trucks, and check out Koreatown.
Cycling is a fantastic way to get an up-close-and-personal look at the city. Or immerse yourself in the world of art in LA’s world-class Arts Precinct on the self-guided Downtown Art Walk.
From The Grove near Hollywood to Beverly Hills' Rodeo Drive, there’s no shortage of Los Angeles shopping districts in which to binge on your credit card. You've got to find yourself something nice for tonight anyway. Right?
After all that retail therapy, sit back with a classic pre-dinner cocktail at Alibi’s or, if you’re near Pasadena, the 1886 Bar at The Raymond.
There are thousands of excellent restaurants in the city, so you’re bound to find whatever you desire. Treat yourself to the full experience and reserve a table at Animal or Maude.
Try spotting the A-listers gathered around the pool at the Hollywood Roosevelt’s Tropicana Bar drinking cocktails until 2:00am.
Time to bed down between the silky soft sheets of the Hollywood Roosevelt and dream of the tales they would tell if the walls could talk.
