Photos by Ale Veyna and Me
Huntington Library & Botanical Gardens
Today, I’m sharing a photo diary of my trip to the Huntington Library & Botanical Gardens a few weeks ago. If you’ve never been, this is one of the best kept secrets in the L.A. area. Although I’m pretty familiar with it because it’s located in San Marino, just one city over from my hometown of Pasadena, it has yet to be discovered by the mass of tourists. You can say that’s a good thing, but it’s also just a shame that so many people miss out on visiting this beautiful location. I hope the next few photos inspire you to visit.
During my last trip back home to LA, I was finally able to check off Smorgasburg LA from my list of things to do. For those of you who are not from LA, you may be wondering what this is. Well, every Sunday Smorgasburg LA turns an empty parking lot into the place to be by bringing together an array of amazing food vendors and fun shops. But, let’s be honest, I was mainly there for the food. And while it was overwhelming to be surrounded by so many options, I did manage to do my fair share of eating and was extremely satisfied with my picks. Keep on reading for a few of my recommendations.
