Our last week in LA. Where to go? What to do? We went to have one last look of the whales in Malibu, one last french toast in Aroma Cafe and say goodbye to the City from the observation deck in US Bank Tower
Im going to miss you City of Stars….
The journey doesn’t end here. Check WWW.INLUGANO.COM to see our new adventures in Switzerland
Driving straight to San Diego with a baby didn’t seem like a good idea so we stayed in Carlsbad for the night. And I’m happy we did. Such an easygoing place. I swear i haven’t met so many nice people anywhere!! Loved it
We enjoyed our stay in Beach Terrace Inn. I would definitely recommend this hotel.
Honestly, LA deserves better. (not even mentioning the animals)
There are two beaches. The one you access from the main parking area is the South beach and only short hike away is the dog friendly North beach. In between them there is a rocky area known as Sequit Point which has tide pools.
Malibu lagoon is where Malibu Creek meets the ocean. From the parking lot the path leads you through wetlands (we’ve seen a lot of bird watchers on our way)
to the Surfrider beach on your left. You can see the Malibu pier from there.
If your curious how the rich lives after the wetlands turn right and check the amazing beach houses
What a place! Too big to see it in one day, bit pricey (adult admission is 25 dollars, compare with Descanso gardens adult admission 9 dollars) but still worth to visit. At least once.
My favourite part is the Japanese garden.
If you are with kids you must visit the Brady botanical centre and children’s garden
The arboretum is so big that we didnt have time to finish it. But we will be back to see the rest! Its a beautiful walk with stroller.
We even squeezed a little biology lesson into our walk. Pandas eat bamboo leaves.
Honestly I was bit disappointed with this hike. It’s too short /3 miles loop/, bit boring and repetitive. I think it might improve a lot if you use Rising Sun Trail one way and Solstice canyon trail on the way back.
