Los Angeles Summer Things to Do

Los Angeles Summer Things to Do, Including the Areas of Hollywood, Beverly Hills and Santa Monica ________________ In just about a week when we hit the U.S. holiday of Memorial Day, summer officially starts in the minds of many.  Temperatures will start to rise, and everyone will seek the comfort of pools, dips in the ocean, outdoor restaurants with a cross-breeze, and air-conditioning. Summer temps in Los Angeles usually hover around the 80’s or 90’s, but we typically get short term heatwaves in July, August and September that could hit about 105F (41C).  At least it’s normally a dry heat with very low humidity, unlike places such as Hawaii, Florida or New York, where you can dry off from a

Den Meditation Los Angeles

Vacations are great, but sometimes from all of the go, go, go, you need a staycation after the vacation. You can easily wear yourself out while you are touring around the city, so making sure to take a few minutes to relax can be key in making sure you don’t burn out before the trip is through. Luckily for us there are plenty of relaxing activities in the city, beaches and parks are spread out all over for picnics and a day of sunbathing, but even that can be a bit stressful (everyone in Los Angeles feels it when they try to snag a parking spot near Venice or in West Hollywood). One way to combat this? Meditation. Don’t know
