Hello, my name is Alieshia a millennial traveler blogger who wants to encourage others to see the world. If you have not been to Los Angeles and you are planning a trip this is for you. If you are thinking about going to Los Angeles this is for you.
If you don’t know then now you do LA is my favorite city the weather, the atmosphere everything about it just lifts my spirits. I love the freeness of the city. There is always something to do and you are able to network with so many people. No matter if you want to be a star on Hollywood or a comedian at the local comedy clubs. Dreams are achieved in this city!
Are you going to Los Angeles for the weekend? “YES” you say.
Here are your 4 must-see things to do when you visit Los Angeles.
#1 Nipsey Hussle Square ( Crenshaw and Slauson )
The Shopping center is blocked off but that is where the store “The Marathon Continues” was located and some other stores. ( I can’t remember off the top of my head. Although if you keep driving to the next light you will see a food place called “FATBURGER”. This is known as the Nipsey Hussle Square. Behind the store and on the side of the store there are murals of Nipsey. ( RIP to Nipsey) a year is coming up pretty soon.
There is so much that he did for the community and still was doing for the community. It is really sad that we lost someone of great character and hard worker in the community.
FAT burger is still open so you know my family and I had to try it. I honestly never heard of FAT burger before. The food was pretty good and it was created by a black woman but it was owned by Nipsey and his partners.
After this, we went and took pictures in front of the murals that were surrounding the Square.
#2 Staples Center
This is one of the major staples in the city. Lol
Whether you are going to a basketball game or want to take take pictures. There is restaurants over there to eat at, even Shaq has a restaurant. You can just walk around on a nice day and take pictures. Now (RIP Kobe) there are murals of KOBE and Gigi surrounding the area.
I went there literally a week after he passed, so I was able to sign the wall and take pictures of the mural. It was so packed with people, flowers and traffic. So much love was shown to the Bryant family and the other 7 lives that were loss in the accident around the city.
#3 Hollywood Tour
Oh goodness if you don’t do anything else you have to at least go on a tour around Los Angeles. You can see houses, the city and even the Hollywood sign. We went through Beverly Hills and even seen Beyonce and Jay Z their house is amazing. We also saw studios and where they shot some of the best movies. This was a really cool tour to actually ride around and see the city.
#4 Hollywood Stars
I feel that Los Angeles is one of the most inspiring cities people move there to live out there dreams. To go see real people that you look up to have stars in their respective industries had me in awe. There is a whole block of stars and it really never ends. You can start on one side of Hollywood and it just goes continues down the street with names.
I loved my experience in Los Angeles and I can’t wait to go back.
