Ever wonder how much extra would it cost to turn that 4 hour stopover at LAX into a day or two? I did and that’s how I ended up spending 36 hours in Los Angeles. You might not think that’s enough time to really do anything in a new city but it turns out I can be quite an efficient travel machine when I want to be. So what did I do with my time?
The ferris wheel on the Santa Monica Pier wasn’t the best idea as a solo traveler since you can’t ride alone. Luckily, a couple let me ride in the 4-person gondola with them. I loved the higher up view of the stretch of beach and the ocean. It was fairly busy for a Monday in early May.
