Griffith Observatory

















I don't think that I'll ever get tired of playing a tourist. There's always a new place to explore, a different sight to visit. During my month-long stint in Anaheim recently, I took the opportunity to visit Griffith Observatory, a true icon of Los Angeles, located on the southern slope of Mount Hollywood in Griffith Park. Situated more than 1,100 feet above sea level, the location offers stunning views of L.A., and opportunities to catch breathtaking sunsets, like the one I captured in some of my photos above. For those of you who have never been, I strongly urge you to visit the observatory next time you're in L.A. And boys, if you're hoping to get lucky one of these days, it really doesn't get more romantic than this.. Just sayin', I'm so happy my hubby and I picked this location for our date night.

What a cool post, i really like playing tourist and that's cool you got to stay in Anaheim and go up to LA to visit. Your yellow top is so bright and chic especially with the city in the background.

hey!! Thanks so much for stopping by my blog!

Don't you just love the observatory? Andre and I are always hiking the trails at Griffith. The hike behind the Hollywood sign is INTENSE, but definitely worth doing once.
