Insider Tips- 5 Classic Must Visit Places in LA
1. Getty Centre
When I am in Los Angeles I always visit the Getty Museum. “The J. Paul Getty Museum seeks to inspire curiosity about, and enjoyment and understanding of, the visual arts by collecting, conserving, exhibiting and interpreting works of art of outstanding quality and historical importance. To fulfill this mission, the Museum continues to build its collections through purchase and gifts, and develops programs of exhibitions, publications, scholarly research, public education, and the performing arts that engage our diverse local and international audiences. All of these activities are enhanced by the uniquely evocative architectural and garden settings provided by the Museum’s two renowned venues: the Getty Villa and the Getty Center.” If you have time it is definitely worth the trip to visit the Getty Villa in Malibu.
2. Shopping in West Hollywood
Robertson Boulevard like Rodeo Drive, is a favorite shopping mecca for celebrities and paparazzi who stalk them. Personally, I love both but Robertson Boulevard is home to more unique shops and many of the high end labels. I always check out the stores in Sunset Boulevard even if I don’t stay at the sophisticated, modern West Hollywood Hotel The Mondrian. Plus, I like to go to Asia de Cuba.
3. The IVY
The Ivy is a restaurant on Robertson Boulevard in Los Angeles, also, known for celebrity sightings and papparazzi. The Ivy serves nouvelle American cuisine “in a prettily decorated series of country-cottage rooms, with a flowery outdoor terrace”. I love to have lunch here.
4. Urth Caffee
The Urth Caffé is an organic coffee company that exclusively carries its own brand of premium, fresh roasted whole bean organic coffee, and hand selected fine teas sold under strict quality and ethical standards. I went there with go-to girl for all things fashion, beauty and living, Melissa Meyers from Page Daily. We loved the salads too!
Cecconi’s is a classic Italian restaurant serving breakfast, lunch, and dinner as well as cicchetti (Italian tapas), seven days a week. It is located on the corner of Melrose Avenue and Robertson Boulevard in West Hollywood. I love to go there around 7:00 for a light dinner and wine.
