Majority of my vacation was spent in Los Angeles. Here I toured Hollywood Boulevard, visited the California African American museum and the Science Center. I also enjoyed local favorites Roscoes Chicken and Waffles as well as In and Out .
With each step you are able to walk and view the infamous Hollywood Walk of Fame. The tourist attraction I enjoyed most on Hollywood Boulevard was the wax museum . This is somewhere I have always wanted to visit and I was pleasantly surprised by the accuracy of the resemblance between some of my favorite celebs and their wax figures. The Guinness World Records Museum and Ripley’s believe it or not were also very fun and extremely interactive activities. You can experience all three for just $36.
Over on State Dr there is a group of 4-5 museums that welcome both tourist and locals at no cost. The California African American Museum was the coolest of them all. Currently there is an Ernie Barnes exhibit that will run through September. If you’re not familiar with him, he was a football player for the Los Angeles Chargers as well as an artist . Although he has plenty of artwork , I personally recognized and related with his work from the tv show Good Times. In my opinion , this is a must see exhibit.
As a true foodie, my favorite part of everyday is eating! But I must admit to not being entirely impressed with my meals in Los Angeles. While in the city I indulged in both Roscoes Chicken and Waffles as well as In and Out. My opinion on both is they were just … okay. I would much rather dine at home in the city of New Orleans.
Thus sums up my time in Los Angeles.
In the next few days I’ll share more on my So Cali experience, stay tuned !
