Traveling West: Pacific Coast Hwy to LAPosted: November 20, 2013
Our next venture in our travels from San Francisco was the gorgeous drive down the Pacific Coast Hwy to LA. We left San Francisco around 10 am and got to LA at about 8:30 pm…so it was an all day drive, but so worth it!
I knew right away it was going to be a beautiful drive along the coast!
We made several stops on our drive and the views kept getting prettier and prettier!
This is a famous bridge at Big Sur. It was breathtaking!!
On top of the world! 🙂
We came upon Piedras Blancas Beach where elephant seals pack the beach in the winter months! It was so cool to see hundreds of seals just laying on the beach!
I caught one yawning 😉
We finally made it to LA around 8:30 pm, ate dinner in Santa Monica, and stayed at a hotel off of Sunset Blvd. The next morning, we were up early ready to see all Hollywood had to offer. We drove through the Hollywood Hills, caught a great view of the skyline, and saw the famous Capitol Records building.
Then, we were on a hunt for the best view of the Hollywood sign and we found it at Griffith Observatory. It was a hiking park and trail that went right by the Hollywood sign, it was pretty cool! We didn’t have time to hike all the way up and weren’t really wearing appropriate hiking clothes, but we got some great shots of the Hollywood sign!
I was just a little excited! Haha
We had a fun and full day driving all around LA. We went to Beverly Hills, walked around Rodeo Dr, stopped by the DASH store(yes, I watch Keeping Up With the Kardashians…don’t judge me haha), went back to Santa Monica, drove the coast to Malibu, and stopped in Calabassas in hopes of a Kardashian sighting…no luck though!
We had an absolute blast driving all around California! It was off to a few show days from there and then back to more exploring! Our next adventure was in Moab, Utah! Stay tuned!
