A Spring Break Travel Guide, Featuring the City of Angels

Spring break is just around the corner, and some of us probably have some crazy fun travel plans, like going on a tropical getaway to Hawaii or maybe even traveling abroad… while others prefer to sleep in and binge watch every single episode of their favorite show.

No matter which kind of gal you are, this travel guide is for those who enjoy a little bit of venturing but aren’t committed to the time, money (and energy) of a whole week-long trip.

And what better place to explore than the City of Angels? Here, you’ll find the guide divided into three parts: Places to Visit, Foods to Eat, and Things to Do. Happy exploring!
