New update! Finally found some time to finish off this post and others should follow soon.
We're now halfway through our tip through California with JJs parents and grandparents. This time exploring LA and the some places surrounding it. Hope you enjoy!
The Huntington Library, Art Collections, and Botanical Gardens
Our first destination arriving in LA was The Huntington Library, Art Collections, and Botanical Gardens. It is a collections-based research and educational institution for both scholars and the general public. This place has so many spectacular sights that it is easy to spend a whole day there (what we ended up doing). Both the botanical gardes and the exhibitions are world class. Here are some of our impressions of the day:
The next day we went downtow to visit the contemporary art museum The Broad
For the afternoon we decided to get a bit out of town and visit the Griffith Oberservatory for a great view over the city and the Hollywood sign.
It was time to go back down the memory lane. This day was packed with action as we had a full day booked for Universal Studios.
We got there relativly early in the morning, which I can highly recommends since this is the time where the lineups are the shortest. The theme park has a nice mix of areas from Harry Potter to Transformers including a lot of Roler Coaster rides + the Universal Stodio tour of course. Overall it seems to be the better deal compared to the other theme parks available. Here are some of our impressions:
To finish off our LA trip we went to the Getty Center. JJ and I have already been here last time (see http://unterwegs.cloud/blog/2016-california-la) and were fascinated by the architecture and art, so coming back was high on our bucket list.
