Honeymoon in L.A.
For the second part of our honeymoon, we drove along the coast down Highway 1 to Los Angeles. It was a long, but beautiful drive!
We made it to our hotel, the Marriott downtown, around 8:30 pm Thursday evening. The hotel was so accommodating, and upgraded us to a nice Junior Suite. We didn't do much Thursday night since it was pretty late and we were exhausted from driving. Friday, we went to Hollywood Boulevard to see Grauman's Chinese Theater and the Walk of Fame. We also went on a Hollywood Homes Tour. I'm not sure if our tour guide had a lisp or just a bad accent, but he kept saying BevWE Hills. It cracked me up every time he said it, and believe me he said it A LOT! He showed us all around Beverly Hills and also took us to Rodeo Drive. Of course, I loved all the stores on Rodeo Drive and Jeremy loved all the NICE cars.
Friday night, we went to dinner at this really cool downtown lounge called The Edison. It was definitely one of the coolest places I've ever been. The theme of the place is the depression era. The hostess was wearing a flapper dress and they had old black and white films being projected on the walls. They also had drink and appetizer specials based on the cost during the depression era. If you ever go to L.A., I would definitely recommend this place http://www.edisondowntown.com/.
The next day we went to Disneyland!!! More about that on my next blog.
