Glittering LA

neon_museum_entranceLA is one of the world’s most creative cities.  Its museums and burgeoning gallery scene have an experimental edge that is often missing in other cultural capitals. My uncle who loves this place and visited this place many times while working for a http://www.conwaysnb.com. He gave us some tips which we are writing here. He tell us more that it boasts many of the country’s most exciting chefs and has a lively fashion and design community that creates innovative architecture, clothing and graphics.

And as if that wasn’t incentive enough to visit, LA is the perfect city to intersperse relaxing escapes into nature with metropolitan pleasures. The city has many beautiful semi-wild parks (among them Runyon Canyon, Will Rogers State Park and Griffith Park) and there is also the 22-mile long South Bay bike path that runs from Will Rogers State Beach in the north to Playa Del Rey in the south.

And half a day’s drive from the city you can experience great skiing at Big Bear, the vineyards of the Santa Ynez Valley near Santa Barbara or hike in the High Mojave desert near Palm Springs.

While LA can be intimidating to the novice to navigate (at its widest it is 44 miles across) and its 10 and 12 lane highways look terrifying to the beginner, once you get the hang of the fairly slow moving freeways, it is easy to cross great distances in a little time.

-When to go

LA is a great year round destination.  Summer temperature is typically in the 80s and winter highs are in the 60s and low 70s. January and February are the rainiest months, so bring protection and winter temperatures can plunge dramatically in the evening, but who cares when you get to spend most of the day in a T-shirt?  Year round temperatures are typically a few degrees cooler at the beach and from May-June it can take most of the morning for the grey ‘marine layer’ to burn off.

-Getting around

Buses and trains: Few people think of taking the bus or subway in LA, but you may be surprised how speedy and convenient it can be in some locations.  Use the excellent LA Metro Trip Planner (see above) to find out which bus and/or metro combination gets you closest to your destination.

Cycling: For a city dominated by cars, Los Angeles has a surprising number of separate bike trails (labikepaths.com) and over 140 miles of bike lanes and 4,000 bike racks.   The Santa Monica and Venice beach promenade is dotted with bike rental and skate rental huts.  One of the most popular bike stores is Spokes N Stuff ( 001 888 242 3971; spokes-n-stuff.com/location_rental.html), which rents out bikes in Santa Monica, Griffith Park and Marina Del Ray from $14.99 all day.

Taxis:  Yellow Cab Co (001 877 733 3305; layellowcab.com) and LA Checker Cab (001 310 330 3720; ineedtaxi.com) are two of LA’s most reputable taxi companies.

Car hire:  LAX has nearly 40 rental car companies, but only 10 have courtesy shuttles that drop off passengers at the terminals, these are Advantage, Alamo, Avis, Budget, Dollar, Enterprise, Fox, Hertz, National, Payless and Thrifty.  You can also rent cars by the hour or day from Zipcars (zipcar.com/la) this is a convenient option if you are staying in Hollywood where most of the Zip car pick up and drop off locations are situated.

Washington DC

Washington DC

Washington, DC, our political center. Many are reluctant to label this unique piece of land a city, although it doesn’t quite make state-status. The amusement that a visit to DC can provide you depends mostly on how interested you are in our politics and our rich history.

 One thing’s for sure, there’s no shortage of friendliness towards tourists in the city. I wasn’t quite expecting the hospitality found in the majority of its areas, even by state officials for whom being stern and serious is part of their job description.

 A tourist-friendly place after all

 I tried to get in as many tourist groups as possible during my few days there, with the goal of visiting as many historical monuments and structures of note as possible – hopefully, there would also be some good selfies.

 I wasn’t disappointed, as I got to visit just about every major part of the city, from the Lincoln Memorial to the White House itself. Although I didn’t get to see our president, the visit was still a very eventful one – aside from pictures that I’m hoping to hold onto for decades, I also got a glimpse of several of our notable politicians, some beloved and some not-as-much.
