My husband and I are planning a trip to Hawaii.
I found that I can’t get a direct flight there. I can’t even get there with one layover either. I need to fly to a southern state, then fly to Los Angeles and then fly to Hawaii. My husband and I have talked about it and we aren’t pleased with the long travel times. To make it more bearable we are going to do a stopover. My itinerary has us flying to Los Angeles, staying two days, going to Hawaii and then coming back to LA for one more day. That means I will have three days total in California and will need something to do. I need something that will not seem like a letdown from Hawaii. What is there to do in Los Angeles? The Marvin Braude bike trail is apparently a 22 mile strand that people bike on during the daytime. I am going to pass on that one. I am not a biker. Echo park lake has pretty flowers and fountains, but who cares about that? There is a beachfront neighborhood called Venice that has canals you can play around in. I guess that is fine. Really the only thing that stood out to me was that there is recreational weed there. I thought my husband and I could find a recreational cannabis dispensary and hang out there a bit. We could get buzzed up in our hotel room and then go to dinner. That might be fun for one day. But what do I do the rest of the time?
