LOS ANGELES //
Head to the Beach
There is nothing like hitting the beach on a hot sunny day in LA. Whether you hit Manhattan Beach, Huntington Beach, Newport Beach, Venice Beach or Laguna Beach, there is a location closer to you than you think. Many of these beaches have many locations to eat and shop, so grab a friend and put on that sunblock for a relaxing day.
Head to a Museum
If you are in the LA area, there are multiple museums you can head during memorial day weekend. Whether you head to the The Board, LACMA, AA museum, Getty Center, or Griffith Observatory there are a wide range of museums in Los Angeles. Check out each website to see which museum you prefer to go to. Some museums are actually free, so take advantage of that! *A little tip: some museums have the option to make a reservation to get into the museum earlier in the day - helps to avoid lines and secures your space*
