A hidden gem, only known by word of mouth this is one of my favorite hikes in LA. Walk through this scenic route crossing mini rivers and mini obstacle courses to reach the ultimate pleasure at the end a huge waterfall.
8. GO TO A CINESPIA SCREENING
Never Ending Story, Nightmare on Elm Street, Romy and Michelle's Highschool Reunion... Just a few of the awesome movies that Cinespia screens. In the summer months grab your blanket and picnic, set up in the middle of the Hollywood Forever Cemetery and watch one of your fave old school movies outdoors!
9. SECRET BEACH LECHUZA
Shhhhh it's a secret! This beautiful beach is a hidden gem only really known by the Malibu locals and the few (e.g me) it has been shown to. No matter the time of day its never overly crowded and you are sure to have a relaxed beach day.
10. MELROSE & FAIRFAX TRADING POST
Every piece of furniture I own is from here! Find anything from amazing vintage gems, home made jewels and great cheap sunnies! Grab a smoothie from the juice bar and have a browse.
