If you are stuck at school or work during the week and can't find the time to enjoy your time in Los Angeles, look for some places to visit during your weekends where you can share your memories with the world!
Whether you've been raised in LA or are visiting LA for the summer, this is the best time to get those pictures flowing onto your feed!
1. Griffith Observatory
At the Griffith observatory, you can take pictures outside with the view of LA behind you, or inside with models of the planets all around you! Visit the observatory to find some of the best views in LA.
Plus, the observatory has several shows you can buy tickets for to learn about the stars.
2. Venice Canals
This is a wonderful place to visit. You can either walk across the bridges or enjoy the residential views from the water.
Either way, at sunset, this is a beautiful place to be.
3. Santa Monica Pier
The Santa Monica pier is filled with food and fun! There are caricature artists, street performers, and delicious bacon-wrapped hotdogs…and that's not even touching on the rides or restaurants. Join fellow Angelinos in enjoying the atmosphere of the pier. And once you've walked the pier, go down to the beach or head towards the city to visit the third street promenade!
4. The Last Bookstore
The Last Bookstore is well known for its flying books and book arch. Visit the bookstore for older and newer books, and then take a walk around DTLA.
5. OUE SkySpace
If you visit OUE Skyspace, you can slide down the side of the building and capture your expressions on both the entrance and exit sides to get the best photos!!
6. LA's Secret Stairs
Back in the day, there were tons of staircases connecting different places in LA where people could get to work and/or school. Some of these staircases still exist and are open for the public.
Visit the one off of Highland behind the Hollywood Bowl or the Beachwood Canyon stairs for great views of LA!
7. Getty Center or Getty Villa
