With all the people and traffic in Los Angeles, where do you stay?
Well, if you are a member of the Elks, there are quite a few Elks lodges in the area with RV parking. This is the one in Ontario, CA - they had a car show while I was there. These California folks sure love old cars! (You can see the RVs in the background.)
I liked this one the best, of course, it was the rustiest.
Route 66 ends right at the Santa Monica pier. I wanted to see it, but didn't know what to expect. Would there be any place to park?
Surprise! You can drive right onto the pier, and park for $1!
There are amusements rides on the pier, including this indoor carousel.
Info on Route 66, this being the western terminus of the 2,448 mile historic highway.
Lots of street performers, including one who puts parrots on the shoulders of brave youngsters.
And lots of historic photos. Check out the size of these surfboards!
Forrest Gump must have been here recently - he left his shoes, suitcase, and box of chocolates in front of the Bubba Gump Shrimp Co.
One of the most expensive real estate markets in North America is Balboa Island, part of Newport Beach - a cute place to visit. They were shooting a Lucky Brand Jeans ad in front of the Balboa candy store.
What size jeans do you think she wears? I'm guessing size zero XXX-long.
There are lots of cute shops in town, and I love to look for funny t-shirts. Of course, I'm not looking to buy, just take pictures.
