Call us homebodies, but lately we’ve been giving our frequent-flier miles a break. It’s just hard to justify fighting over the aisle seat when L.A. literally has it all: desert vistas, world-class beaches, killer tacos, and a disproportionate ratio of the best-looking people on the planet. What more could an adventuress need?
To celebrate staycationing in the city we call home (and our aversion to waiting in security lines), we teamed up with extended-stay hotel HYATT house® in El Segundo to pick the brain of L.A. blogger and consummate city-hound Heather Taylor of L.A. in Bloom. A Los Angeles native, Taylor’s street cred and impeccable taste (did we mention she has her own line of designer table linens?) make us scramble for our notebooks when she mentions the best places to take in an indie flick or sip the ultimate chai latte.
We plan to spend this weekend exploring our own city like a pro, minus the tourist traps. Join us as we hit up Taylor’s favorite spots: no boarding pass required.
