I love LA… We love it!

Last week I road tripped to LA in a rented Corvette.

??
What might have been a tour of the castles??of??California (Hearst Castle, Magic Castle, Sleeping Beauty, Medieval Times,??Julius Castle,??Castello di Amorosa, etc.) turned into just a traditional heavy metal NoCal-to-SoCal coastal road trip bookended with stops at the alternately exquisite Hearst Castle and Magic Castle (and its accompanying Magic Hotel).

??
June is a perfect month for driving down the coastline through??Pacific Coast Highway, because the weather is not too hot and there’s plenty of daylight to see scenic oceanic views. June 17, 2010 was like another perfect day; I love LA… WE LOVE IT!!!
??
??
??
Top 10 things I learned road tripping to LA 2010…
??
2. To get reservations at the Magic Castle, first book a room at the Magic Hotel.
3. Quietly??Eat dinner at Magic Castle early so you can explore and enjoy the shows.
??
??
4. After midnight, try nightswimming, walking the stars, and cruising Sunset.
??
??
6. Matzoh Ball soup? Many choices:??Greenblatt’s, Jerry’s Famous Deli, Brent’s,??Canter’s, …
7. Good eats? Roscoe’s Chicken and Waffles??at 1514 North Gower Street between Sunset and Santa Monica??in Hollywood comes??highly??recommended.
8. When driving the Central Coast, reserve your Hearst Castle tickets at least a day in advance, and leave time for the??Theater, Madonna Inn, and Solvang.
9. Cruising PCH and Mulholland West to Hollywood??and back is WONDERFUL.
10. Do attempt to see how fast your Corvette can go.
??
Bonus tip: never buy a previously-rented Corvette.
??
??
Oh, and as always: Life is short. Enjoy the ride…
??
??
…so now all I have to do is finish our last few writeups from our On the 10s road trip in April, and I’ll be up to date and able to??live in the now. Soon…
