Los Angeles in one day is the second article that I wrote for a travel photography website called: MEL365.com THE LOVE FOR TRAVELLING, THE PASSION FOR PHOTOGRAPHY (MADE IN MELBOURNE AND AROUND THE GLOBE)
The full article is on the following link: Los Angeles in one day – A photography journey and I would like to share some of the article here:
I started my day going out before dawn and the destination was: Runyon Canyon Park. To get there you will need to drive early and then go for a walk on a trail with a lot of hills so I would recommend to wear good hiking shoes. It is a good place to enjoy the sunrise while seeing Los Angeles city in 360 degrees. If you cannot make all over the top, the same road taking you to this park has a small parking lot (it could be busy depending the time of the day) where you can see the Hollywood sign as well part of the city skyline, it is called Hollywood Bowl Overlook.
Next stop is Rodeo Dr in Beverly Hills, famous for the shopping and major tourist attraction. Some people say that it is almost a theme park which must be consider on any tour in LA.
Finally, my last destinations of the day were Santa Monica and Malibu. You can always get into Santa Monica using public transport but I would recommend to drive into Santa Monica and then all the way up northwest to Malibu. The scenery it is simply amazing and stunning, with the ocean and beaches on your left side and the hills on your right side. If you love sunsets, you must go to Santa Monica Pier or park on any of the parking lots along the road to Malibu and just enjoy it.
