We were all charged up and ready for Los Angeles! Our first stop was Hollywood Blvd; the kids followed the trail of stars, explored the Dolby building, and saw Grauman’s Chinese Theatre, where major film academy events take place every year. We also had some free time to shop in the La La Land store for a piece of Hollywood!
We moved on to our next stop: Beverly Hills. It was such a fun ride as our guide pointed out all the places celebrities previously stayed; we drove by Marilyn Monroe’s houses, the hotel Amy Winehouse stayed in, Johnny Depp’s property, and so many more!
We had a delicious lunch in the Hollywood Farmer’s Market and then headed toward Laguna Beach. The weather was terrific; many laid out on the beach and enjoyed the sunshine. Some played beach volleyball, and some went in the ocean. After dinner at local restaurants, we were on the road again to San Diego.
Tomorrow, we will visit the San Diego Zoo, La Jolla Beach, and then end the evening watching the 4th of July fireworks over the San Diego Bay.
