As I have mentioned in a previous post, Santa Barbra holds a very special place in my heart. I used to come here many times growing up and I know the city like the back of my hand now! I love taking people here that have never been here and show them the most beautiful parts of this wonderful city, Hopefully you feel like I'm giving you a tour through my photos! Enjoy!
|I love looking down on Santa Barbra and seeing all the white buildings surrounding the ocean. The city has a code where they all the buildings and houses have to be white!|
Theres a small danish town in California called Solvang which is near Santa Barbra and I wanted to visit before my trip was over! So on this day we went to visit this village which my family and I had visited numerous times after coming back to LA after our camping trips in Santa Barbra. Its a cute and beautiful place to enjoy a walk along main street, grab lunch or visit the many Danish bakeries.
The past 10 days that I've been in Los Angeles, I went out to eat alot so I decided to dedicate a post all about some of the restaurants I visited on my trip.
This is a great place for great healthy Mediterranean food in Venice with patio seating and very nice servers. I even received some rolls(pictured below in the left corner)by an elderly woman who works there, I think she thought I was someone else, oh well!
Cheesecake Factory:Marina Del Rey
This is my absolute favorite Cheesecake factory locations that I've ever visited. It has a great view of the marina, boats and people enjoying the beach.
Urth Cafe: Santa Monica&Pasadena
Anyone who lives in LA knows about Urth Cafe and it wasn't until my last trip that I visited this restaurant and I now know what all the hype was about. Its a great place to grab a bite to eat in the nicely shaded outdoor patio with friends. They have several locations such as in Beverly Hill and downtown but I specifically visited the ones in Santa Monica and Pasadena.
Pressed Juicery: Santa Monica
A great place for overpriced fresh juices with extremely friendly employees!
The only burger place worth going in California, I've been here way too many times while living in LA and I believed it deserved a shout out! If you are vegetarian like me, then I suggest ordering the grilled cheese or animal style fries(which is part of the secret menu).
