Time certainly flies when you’re having fun.
This was our last day in LA and there were still things to see so we had to prioritize.
First stop: Griffith Observatory
I picked the observatory since it was the closest to where we were staying. Plus the place is quite popular, have an awesome view of the city and the Hollywood sign.
Getting there is a breeze, but parking not so much. Good advice is if you go before 10AM, even if you pay for 1 hour parking you can stay until 11AM. So I’d suggest going at 9, look around and spend the rest of the time inside the observatory. There’s a lot to see inside. If you go at night you can even see the stars.
Second Stop: Little Tokyo
That’s where we had to part with our vehicle and continue on foot. Little Tokyo as you can imagine is the place to get japanese food and sweets. It’s a tiny gem in the heart of downtown.
Third stop: Hollywood
You can’t say you’ve been to LA if you don’t visit Hollywood. The place isn’t anything spectacular but it’s just something you have to see. We saw plenty of names on the walk of fame including this:
Also visited Madame Tussauds museum. You can skip it if you’re not dying to take selfis with celeb statues. I wasn’t too disappointed considering we paid $15 for going after 4PM.
The ticket also includes Marvel Heroes 4D which is the cheesiest thing I’ve ever seen. It has water splashing in your face which is rather annoying and your chair moves from time to time. You can really skip that.
Hollywood blvd itself is crowded and here and there you can see Spiderman, Superman, Batman, and even Zorro. There were also 2 Michael Jacksons waiting to take a picture.
While everything was fun it’s nothing spectacular.
The next day we had to leave really early in the morning to San Francisco so that was all for LA.
