Los Angeles: Fun In the Sun Gabriel Jones

My LA Experience

My name is Gabriel Jones and my family and I are from Belzoni, Mississippi. I moved to Fort Irwin, CA which is about a 24 hour drive away from home. I have been here for one year and four months. My family seldom comes to visit because of the distance and expenses. Below there are photos of some amazing attractions and a view of my family's experience in the state of California.I recommend you to take your family vacation to the Santa Monica Pier, Universal Studios, the Staples Center, and many more. I have not been everywhere in California because California is a large state. I have traveled many cities within the limits of Barstow, CA to Santa Monica. My favorite thing to do in California is to visit the cities all in one weekend. All of the major attractions are in close proximity.

This particular hiking trial is in Griffith Park which includes the Griffith Observatory and the Greek Theater. The park has an abandoned zoo and tropical gardens. There are three trailing ways to get to the Hollywood sign: Brush Canyon Trail, 6.4 miles with 1,050 feet of elevation; Hollyridge Trail, 3.5 miles with 750 feet of elevation; and/or Wonder View Trail, 3 miles with 875 feet of elevation.

Hiking Trial to the HOLLYWOOD SIGN

I took my puppy, Tew- Too, with me for a walk to the sign. The view at the top of the mountain is amazing. You can actually see the entire city of Los Angeles from there.
This is where the excitement began!
Here's a photo of my friends and I after riding almost every roller coaster in the theme park!

Universal Studios Hollywood

Santa Monica Pier is a 15 to 20 minute walk from the north end of the boardwalk of Venice Beach to the Pier. Personally, I did not take a taxi because the weather was awesome and it was a nice calm view.


This photo was taken on the rocky seaside. The waves could come over the rocks at any moment, you must watch out!

Venice Beach

It was my sister's first time on Hollywood Blvd. After walking around in the hot sun, we found the best organic strawberry lemonade we have ever had! Afterwards, we found my mom shopping. It was getting late and my grandparents were exhausted from having so much fun.
My Sister and I at the Staples Center. We went to see Kevin Hart stand up comedy show. Here's a fun fact about the Staples Center:It is the home of four professional sports franchises; the NBA LA Lakers and the LA Clippers, the NHL's LA Kings and the WNBA's LA Sparks. The arena is also used for a wide range of events such as live music, family shows, boxing, and other special events.

The Staples Center

My Best Friend and I having dinner at the Soowon Galbi. The food there is delicious. It is not a noisy place. The customer service was excellent and the staff was courteous of the costumers.
After a long trip, do not forget to buckle up and gas up to continue the fun for next week! Drive safe I hope your experience was as great as mine.

The End!
