After arriving in Los Angeles after a week of driving across the country, it was so nice to have a place to live for 4 days before the flight overseas.
Molly’s good friends from Americorps were happy to welcome us with open arms. I am forever thankful for their hospitality and kindness to allow us to stay with them. It’s nice to have some new friends in the area.
During our stay, we were able to explore the Santa Monica Pier and Pacific Park. The views from atop the Pacific Wheel were incredible and did you know that the Pacific Coaster allows you 2 rides …! Overall, walking by the beach, riding the rides and watching street performers really made the adventure worth while.
Overall, the food was excellent and I highly recommend eating at the Black Bear Diner – it is a chain restaurant but has quality food for all meals during the day!
