4 Earthly Paradises You Can Visit This Summer If You Live In LA

4 Earthly Paradises You Can Visit This Summer If You Live In LA

You can also go to them if you are planning to visit the city; just get a car and drive on!


I love going on adventures and finding new places. I like breathing in new scents and painting new sights. I'm a huge fan of that which is breathtaking and marvelous.


Getting on a car and setting off to new destinations is one of the few things I can never really get tired of. However, I feel like I am the luckiest person when I land on new territory. I feel like I've found a promised land, one promised for the hungry for adventure and sightseeing.

That's why I want to recommend you some of the amazing places I have been to lately.

1. Point Dumme

Take a drive through PCH, following the GPS and you'll reach this paradise land that faces the ocean. The drive is relaxing, especially if you have the perfect playlist for it. The hills and turns make it even more of a fun drive.

Once you reach the place, there's a trail that guides through this small garden where even bunnies can be found. This trail leads to some sketchy stairs that will eventually take you to the beach. In this twitter thread, I tell more of my adventure there.

2. Palos Verdes

Just imagine the sun setting over that coastline. Just picture it.

Palos Verdes is right after Redondo Beach. The drive on the PCH after LAX is quite a precious one. The lining PCH are small. yet dreamy. Despite the long ride awaiting you, the view is something you won't be able to prepare yourself.

Standing from atop a cliff, you can see the gaping ocean spreading before you, the rolling clouds disappearing in the horizon, and birds dashing through the sky. Just try to close your eyes, and imagine the soothing lull of the rolling waves, the singing wind caressing your face.

There's also a trail that leads to a rocky beach where you can sit down and enjoy the view from up close.

3. Will Rogers State Historic Park

Now this one is for those who love going hiking. To get to this place, you can either go through a fun ride through Sunset Blvd. or along PCH, either is promised to please your viewing eyes.

There are two hiking trails: one that's 5 km long and another one that's 2 km. The 5 km trail takes you up through the mountains, offering a gracious view of the City of Angels, and through a bridge that makes you feel on top of the world. For lovers of nature, this is one wonderful place.

4. Descanso Garden

Jared Godoy

Descanso Garden is what the name implies: a garden. No, to be more precise: a floral maze in which I wouldn't mind getting lost in.

Just think of every flower you can, and you might find in there. The entrance isn't free, but if you are a student, you only pay $6, which is totally worth it.

This would be more appealing to the lovers of nature, but trust me. Each of these places is unique in its own magical way, and you're bound to create some new, unforgettable memories.

8 Reasons Girls Who Love Tequila Are Better

Because if she can handle tequila, she can handle you too.

There are all kinds of alcohol stereotypes out there but the one associated with tequila is probably the worst: tequila makes you crazy. But if there's one thing we can all agree on, it's that women who drink tequila are one-of-a-kind.

Whether it's loving or fighting, you'll never find anyone who does it better than a girl who just straight up loves tequila, and here are a few reasons why that is.

1. She's independent

A girl who drinks tequila is probably the same girl who has absolutely no problem telling it like it is. She knows what she wants and goes after it.

2. She doesn't care what you or anyone else thinks

Oh, you have a problem with me taking shots and having a good time? Well, get over it! Bartender, a shot with salt and a lime please!

3. Always dancing

Tequila is an 'upper' so instead of sitting at the bar doing nothing, let's dance! Let's get moving!

4. There is never a dull moment

Speaking of dancing, a girl who drinks tequila is always down for a good time. Whether it's going on an adventure or seeing who can take the most shots, a tequila girl is always down to party.

5. While everyone else is starting to get sleepy, she has all the energy

Like I said, tequila is an 'upper' so while the other girls at the bar are starting to feel groggy and sad, she's all over the place having fun and partying on the dancefloor.

6. She's stronger than the girl crying over a vodka cranberry at the bar.

Sad over a breakup? Don't go for the vodka... Tequila will make you feel better in no time! Plus you can challenge the hot guys at the bar to a shot taking contest.

7. Tequila is healthy for you

Tequila is a probiotic, so some tequila a day keeps the doctor away. Yay for shots!

8. She can hold her own when it comes to alcohol

Any girl who can shoot some shots at the bar all day and night can handle alcohol, which means she can handle herself too. You won't have to deal with her constant breakdowns and mood swings because she will be too busy ordering more shots.

10 Reasons To Start Vaping In 2019 If You Haven't Yet

"It's safer than cigarettes"


Vaping is the rage these days among adolescents and college students. Here are some great reasons to start!

1. It's what all the cool kids do


I wish that I could be like the cool kids

2. It damages your lungs


It's not like you need these to breathe or anything

3. It pollutes the air


Let's pollute the air even more!

4. Nicotine addiction

Just the thing I want to be addicted to

5. "Delicious" flavors


Would you prefer mango flavor or the cancer flavor?

6. The Juul looks like a USB


Your parents won't suspect a thing

7. Inhale metals like nickel and lead


Yummmmmm. Lead poisoning isn't a thing.

8. More likely to get infections


9. You'll eventually want cigarettes


And you'll make your lungs worse

10. Lung and mouth cancer


Who doesn't want cancer

In case you couldn't tell, this was very sarcastic. If you want all of these things, then go ahead, start vaping. But you should know what you're getting yourself into and be prepared for the consequences.

If you already vape, I mean no disrespect and I'm not trying to hate on you, but you should seriously stop. Whatever you think is a good reason for vaping really is not a good enough reason to damage your body.

Stop vaping. And if you don't vape, don't start. Just don't.
