DTLA, Manhattan Beach, Arts District, Santa Monica, Venice, Silver Lake: Walking Tours, Restaurant Recommendations, Hidden Gems, Street Art, Cafes, Bars, Date Ideas & More

I spent some of my formative years in Los Angeles from my undergrad days at USC (FIGHT ON!) to my first formal start into photography as an intern at MGM Studios. These days I frequent this city as often as I can to escape the fog of San Francisco and to enjoy all the amazing architecture, beautiful street art, quirky fixtures, beautiful alleys, expansive city skyline views, picturesque beaches, most popular breweries, salsa dancing spots, date ideas, hidden gems and everything in between.

Here is my guide to explore some of the best of what Los Angeles has to offer locals and tourists alike. Check out my other travel guides and follow me on Instagram for travel updates as well as new places to explore. Favorite places to visit on my trips to Los Angeles: DTLA, Arts District, Manhattan Beach, Long Beach and Silverlake.
