Girls Trip to Santa Monica

Every year, my sisters and I plan a trip together.  This year we decided to go to Los Angeles.  My mom and my sister-in-law joined us!  How did we decide LA??  Easy!  Southwest was having a big sale and my sister, Richelle in El Paso, and I started searching for cheap flights to somewhere we haven’t been to since we were children.  I’m always on the lookout for inexpensive flights!

The crew:  Julie, Andrea, Richelle and Rita (not pictured:  ME!)

We decided to stay in Santa Monica within a few blocks from the beach so we could walk around the city with ease or use the Bird Scooters!  You have got to check those out if you go to Santa Monica!  When we went into LA, we took Uber so we wouldn’t have to pay for parking.


Definitely head to Venice and check out the shopping on Abbot Kinney.  After you shop til you drop, you have to wander over to Venice Beach just to say you’ve been there!  We didn’t stay long.

One day we went into LA to check a couple places off our list.  The first was the OUE Skyspace and the fun slide!  We had brunch at Perch and enjoyed the views from the rooftop.  We strolled through the LA library and then took an Uber to Griffith Observatory.  Here is your fair warning about Griffith Observatory:  Be prepared to sit in traffic on your way up.  Also, it is not as peaceful as it looks in all the pictures online.  It is crowded and there are people everywhere.  On the flip side, it has gorgeous views!



It was a great girls getaway and I’m looking forward to next years with my sisters and my mom!
