With 24 hours to soak up the sun, start your morning overlooking the Pacific Ocean as you dine in style on the patio of the Veranda Restaurant at the historic Georgian Hotel in Santa Monica. After indulging in their signature French Toast Soufflé, take a stroll down the world-famous Third Street Promenade before heading over to the Santa Monica Pier to take in breathtaking views while riding the world’s first and only solar-powered Ferris wheel. If you’re up for a little more adventure before lunch, join the stand up paddleboard craze and get your SUP on a few miles up the coast in Malibu at Poseidon Stand Up.
With an appetite from the morning’s excursions, it’s time to catch the new METRO train and get downtown to LA’s recently revived Grand Central Market. While there, hit up G&B Coffee for the caffeine-fueled sensation that The New York Times recently called the best iced latte in America. Pair that with a bacon, egg and cheese sandwich from the famed Eggslut, and you are good to go. After lunch, meander over to The Broad to check out the Jeff Koons exhibit and get your LA selfie on with his famous “Michael Jackson and Bubbles” sculpture.
Wind down with drinks at The Ace Hotel and then stroll to Howlin Ray’s, in the heart of LA’s Chinatown, for chef Johnny Ray Zone’s world-famous spicy fried chicken. Following dinner, head downtown to enjoy a sporting event featuring one of our many world-famous teams at Staples Center or a musical performance at the iconic Walt Disney Concert Hall, the Frank Gehry-designed architectural masterpiece.
