Silver Lake, Los Angeles, CA, USA
In Los Angeles, the cliché is that people drive one block to get a soda. But there are lots of staircases hidden in the hills of L.A. In Silver Lake, I like a two-and-a-half mile loop of stairs known as the Music Box. Parts remind me of...
7850 Melrose Ave, Los Angeles, CA 90046, USA
From fancy to funky to sometimes downright fugly, Melrose Ave. is a shopping mecca for all tastes and budgets. While tourists flock to this famous strip to browse the shops, locals know to show up on Sundays for the landmark Melrose Trading...
265 N Carolwood Dr, Los Angeles, CA 90077, USA
This guy collected art. A lot of it. And he lived with it all -- Ed Ruscha in the bedroom, Clifford Still in the entrance, Francis Bacon in the atrium. The house holds 400 pieces of major works. The tours are small and interesting, if a bit rushed...
1636 Silver Lake Blvd, Los Angeles, CA 90026, USA
Living in Los Angeles means that when you have to go on the other side of town, it starts to feel like a roadtrip (if you are not pressed for time). So, anytime I have to leave the Santa Monica Beach and head to Silver Lake, I always stop at LA...
17985 Pacific Coast Hwy, Pacific Palisades, CA 90272, USA
J. Paul Getty’s original museum is as much about the transporting setting as it is about the pieces inside. When the billionaire oil tycoon decided to open a museum for his extensive collection of antiquities in 1974, he modeled it after an...
1822 Sunset Blvd, Los Angeles, CA 90026, USA
When it comes to music venues in Los Angeles, there isn't anywhere more sacred to rock and punk fans than the Echo. Located in the now-hipster neighborhood of Echo Park, the concert venue has hosted plenty of legends, including Beck, Green Day,...
52 Windward Ave, Venice, CA 90291, USA
Townhouse dates back to 1915 and their basement live music venue and bar was once a secret speakeasy. Time has not withered the energy level as revelers continue dance the night away down below. The main floor can get crowded and chaotic as well...
1760 Hillhurst Ave, Los Angeles, CA 90027, USA
Entering the spacious yet cozy outdoors patio of Home Restaurant is like a warm familial embrace. The lush canopy and central coy pond (and fountain lined with mini plastic dinosaurs) set a tranquil yet playful ambiance. The service is friendly,...
2301, 3515 Wilshire Blvd, Los Angeles, CA 90010, USA
The Line Hotel's bar, called Pot Bar, is a rather elevated version of your standard lobby bar. Try the infused soju, with ingredients like natto and kimchi (salty, savory, spicy). Creative concoctions incorporate ingredients like hops and...
2939 Sunset Blvd, Los Angeles, CA 90026, USA
The Thirsty Crow is a dimly-lit high-end dive with over 100 whiskies and 60 small batch bourbons that skilled bartenders serve neat, on ice, or crafted into seasonal cocktails. The circular bar is lined with ingredients like homemade shrubs,...
900 Ocean Ave, Seal Beach, CA 90740, USA
Main Street in Old Town Seal Beach represents iconic and historic California. Much has changed along the coast, yet this small city has kept its old-school and nostalgic flavor, just the way we like it. I think it's the best main street with an...
4427 Sunset Blvd, Los Angeles, CA 90027, USA
Tiki-Ti is a family-run hut of a bar that's been serving tasty tropical drinks since 1961. The walls are covered with decorative flair, and the menu is packed with 92 exotic drink options. The space is small, so get there early to snag a seat....
5221 Hollywood Blvd, Los Angeles, CA 90027, USA
Harvard & Stone serves craft cocktails to a hip crowd discretely behind a wood door off Hollywood Blvd, away from the clubs of the Hollywood strip. In theme with the 1930s factory meets laboratory interior is the R&D Bar in the back where rotating...
29983 Mulholland Hwy, Agoura Hills, CA 91301, USA
I love a man behind a bar with a husky voice and good arms. It’s all the more fitting when he’s serving me coffee in a tin cup in a restaurant that resembles an old western saloon. Old Place was converted from an old county store in the 1970’s,...
239 Vermont Ave, Los Angeles, CA 90004, USA
First, you have to find the right knob... enter the building at the corner of Vermont and 3rd and you'll be faced with a wall of knobs. The challenge is to find the one that opens the door (don't worry, the doorman will help when you flounder)....
8715 Beverly Blvd, West Hollywood, CA 90048, USA
There are plenty of hideaways in Los Angeles, and even more hideaways with star-studded tales. You can eat your way through the city’s 500-square-miles and collect such anecdotes that would seem to span as long. But Dominick’s is different. Yes,...
Amarapura, Myanmar (Burma)
I visited the U Bein Bridge on a rainy day in Burma (Myanmar), and took a boat ride out even though it was pouring. The bridge is supposedly the longest teak-wood bridge in the world (1.2 km), and you can buy trinkets and jewelry from sellers that...
1595 US-101, Goleta, CA 93117, USA
Gaviota State Park has some amazing views- yes, that is the Pacific Ocean and the Channel Islands in the upper left corner! This image is taken from the Trespass Trail, just a short 2.5 mile total length and a 600 ft elevation gain, makes this an...
Paso Robles Dr, San Luis Obispo, CA 93405, USA
Harmony Headlands Trail is a trail that used to be an old ranch road that starts at the small parking lot and goes out to the coast. The hike itself isn't very interesting, as you are walking through former ranch land amongst rolling hills covered...
3550 Pecho Valley Rd, Los Osos, CA 93402, USA
The Montana De Oro state park is located in San Louis Obispo county on the central coast of California. There are many hikes in Montana De Oro state park and this was the longest one we've done yet in this beautiful state park. This was the 7.9...
Phra Nakhon Si Ayutthaya, Thailand
While you're in Thailand, be sure to escape the colorful chaos of Bangkok and head toward the historic capital of Ayutthaya, a UNESCO World Heritage site. The best option to get there would be by train and they run frequently from Bangkok's...
Zabriskie Point, California, USA
Looking something like a cross between a moonscape and leathery skin, Zabriskie Point is one of the landscape highlights of Death Valley. Shaped formations, formed over thousands and thousands of years look best in the early morning, as the sun...
