This is how a New Yorker spends an outdoorsy day in LA. Start with brunch at the Farmer’s Market, then a visit to LACMA and finally, end your day by eating and shopping at The Grove.
In LA, I subconsciously avoid going “in” to anything. That’s why I always prefer an outdoorsy day in LA. The weather is so perfect I don’t want to waste a moment indoor if I don’t have to. At the Griffith Observatory, I spent more time wandering around it than exploring the exhibitions inside. At The Getty Center, I sped walked through the galleries so I could get outside. And even when I was inside, I was always looking out for a view.
While this city girl appreciates the outdoors, I need to build up my tolerance to dirt and tiny flying things. So aside from the beach or a trail, what’s another way to spend an outdoorsy day in LA? Taste testing food stalls at the original Farmer’s Market, exploring LACMA in the afternoon and ending the evening at The Grove.
