LA Bucket List

It feels like every time I see a cool photo on tumblr or Insta it ends up being that the place is in LA. A quick Google search on the name in the caption reveals a location 2700 miles across the country from me. No hipster coffee or artsy graffiti wall for me today.


I visited LA for a few days last summer, per this post, but I can't wait to go back for a week next summer to (omg...) look at apartments and scope out some neighborhoods (looking at you, East LA!). Anyway, I keep running lists of places that I want to try; I have one for Miami and for NYC, so I figured I might as well make my mental list for LA official.

Coffee
Intelligentsia (Silver Lake)
Alfred Coffee (Melrose/W. Hollywood)
Verve (DTLA, W. Hollywood, W. 3rd)
Blue Bottle (several locations around LA)
*every other awesome coffee shop in the Silver Lake/Echo Park area*

Bakeries/Dessert
California Donuts (Central LA)
Donut Snob (Echo Park)
21 Choices Frozen Yogurt (Old Pasadena)

Brunch
Malibu Farm (Malibu)
Local (Silver Lake)
Eggslut (DTLA)
Blu Jam Café (W. Hollywood)
BLD (Fairfax)

See/Do/Explore
Griffith Observatory (Los Feliz)
The Getty Center (Westside)
The Broad (DTLA)
Runyon Canyon Park (Hollywood Hills)
Melrose Trading Post (Fairfax)
Rose Bowl Flea Market (Pasadena)

Any favorite spots/recommendations in LA?!
