Vicky's Activity

ALos Angeles: The most challenging hike in Southern California?

I did the Bridge to Nowhere​ / East Fork Trail hike in the San Gabriel Mountains near Azusa many many years ago and found the ten or so river crossings pretty challenging as the currents were pretty strong then. The Bridge was certainly the highlight... See More

ALos Angeles: Accommodation - boutique with a kitchenette for 5 nights and what to do?

There are lots of great vacation rental units with kitchenettes in Venice Beach​ like these cozy cottages at Venice Beach Eco Cottages ​. Try  for more choices. You'll see yoga studios within blocks away from each other. There are farmer's... See More

ALos Angeles: What's your favorite burger in L.A?

Try Pono Burger​ in Santa Monica. Cool space and organic ingredients, including the beef from pasture raised, grass-fed cows.  See More

ALos Angeles: Best private clubs or spaces for a large event in L.A.?

Check out the Bel-Air Bay Club​ on PCH not too far from where the 10 freeway ends. It's a spacious, historic estate with amazing views of the Pacific Ocean. I attended a wedding party here years ago and was really impressed with the view, the space,... See More

ALos Angeles: Luxury trip to LA - areas to stay?

Santa Monica is great for a luxury stay. There are plenty of luxury hotels, and proximity and access to the beach make a great difference! The best ones are Shutters On the Beach​ and The Huntley Hotel​. There are plenty of spas... See More

ALos Angeles: Great places to visit and eat near LAX airport?

Venice Beach is a good choice for something close to LAX but quintessential LA. Abbot Kinney, called the "coolest block in America" by GQ, has artsy / hipster shops, restaurants, food trucks, and art galleries, and if you're in town on a First Friday everything... See More

AHong Kong: First trip to Hong Kong, what are the best restaurants I shouldn't miss?

You must try Dim Sum for breakfast or brunch when in Hong Kong!  A must try is the Michelin-starred Tim Ho Wan​ (it's the cheapest, perhaps most casual Michelin starred restaurant!) There are a few locations, the original being the one in Sham... See More

ALos Angeles: Good, laid back, natural beaches within a few hours drive of Los Angeles?

I live right by Venice Beach and Santa Monica but I usually head to Orange County's laid back beaches when it's a nice beach day. My favorite is Crystal Cove State Park​, not just for the cool tide pools and rocks but I really think it's... See More

ALos Angeles: LA-San Diego-Las Vegas-San Francisco: road trip with kids, what to see?

I love road trips!  I suggest this route: LA - San Diego - Vegas - Grand Canyon - Bryce Canyon (Utah) - Mono Lake - Yosemite - San Francisco - and back to LA via the 101 San Diego: spend a day at the zoo and Balboa Park, a day around La Jolla, a day at Lego Land. (you... See More

ALos Angeles: Best weekend getaways from Los Angeles?

I love spending time in and around La Jolla​ in San Diego. The colors of the water at La Jolla Cove​​ remind me of a Mediterranean beach. One of my favorite spots is Salk Institute​ - architect Louis Kahn designed... See More
