Stanley's Perfect Days

A Day In L.A. Roof Down, Shades On

    • Morning
      • The Original Farmers Market

      • Start your sunny day in LA with a bite at the Grove's Farmers Market. There are numerous food options and ample outdoor seating. Grab some fresh fruit for the road
      • Griffith Observatory

      • Take a short drive up the hill to Griffith Observatory, which offers a stunning view of downtown LA and also a very close view of the iconic Hollywood sign. The view is also stunning at night with the gleaming lights of LA below, but unfortunately the Hollywood sign is not lit at night, so going during the day is best if you want to snap some photos. The Observatory sits atop Griffith Park, which has lots of hiking trails.
    • Afternoon
      • solstice canyon

      • Head out to Malibu for a hike at Solstice Canyon - featuring waterfalls, rivers, and all.
    • Evening
      • Pacific Coast Highway

      • Take a drive down Pacific Coast Highway ("PCH" for short) to catch the sunset
    • Night
      • father's office

      • Stop by father's office for some craft beer and a delicious burger (in the event you have not yet stopped at an In-N-Out earlier in the day!)
      • Hollywood Walk of Fame

      • Walk off your burger on the Walk of Fame - somewhat of a tourist trap but makes the calorie-burning way more interesting as you look for your favorite celebrities' names.
      • bar marmont

      • Stop by Bar Marmont after your busy day for a glimpse of chic Hollywood and perhaps some celebrity sightings
      • I would stay at: W Hotel Hollywood

      • Continue the party poolside on the rooftop of the W, which is only accessible for hotel guests and friends. Stumble back down to your hotel room and know that you've experienced your day in LA in style.
