1. Be a tourist! Where would someone go on a visit to your town? Here in L.A. they may go see the Hollywood sign or take a tour of nearby celebrity homes. Both are great options, by the way!

 2. Take a food tour. Los Angeles has dessert tours, neighborhood tours, and more that are a sure way to get your foodie fix.

 3. Have a Spa day. In dire need of a mani/pedi and massage? Either go out and get one or treat yourself to one at home with services like Priv and Zeel.

 4. Try out a new recipe or two! We’ve recently had our eyes on this Summer Burrata Salad and these Chickpea Gyros.

5. Get outdoors and go on a local hike!

6. Take a day trip to a nearby town you’ve been wanting to visit. For us that’s Newport Beach or Malibu!
