Top 5 Reasons To Be Excited About CA

That's right! It's time for another Top 5 Reasons to be Excited About California! If you've missed any of the other great reasons why it's so awesome to live or even visit check out my previous reasons why it's great to live in the Golden State! 
1. Vintage Clothing Stores. I love to shop for vintage clothing and accessories. Anytime I go on a road trip or vacation I scout out vintage stores and hit them up while I'm there. You never know what you'll find and that's always half the fun. Los Angeles has tons of them and they always seem to get new stuff each week. The last time I was there I went to 3 stores in a span of 4 days. I bought so much I had to have some of it shipped back! Maybe this isn't a great thing... since my bank account will definitely be feeling the hits. 
2. Grauman's Chinese Theater. It holds over 75 years of history. Besides hosting major motion picture premieres, it also home to over 50 celebrity hand and foot prints. Visiting the theater to either take in a movie or do some sightseeing, it shouldn't be missed. 
3. The People. You never know who you'll run into. You never know who you'll see. The last time I was in Los Angeles, I came across these people just sitting beside the road up in the hills of Beverly. Just holding their signs, wanting people to stop and chat. We did stop... turns out their two struggling actors looking for their big break.
4. Bruce Willis. He will never get old. Of course, age wise he will but he's good looking, successful, rich and um... yeah.. HOT! He lives in Los Angeles and wouldn't it be great to be ordering a vanilla bean frap, turn around and see him. I sure think so...
5. Of course the Beach! If you haven't guessed... it'll always be on the list!

New follower here! I love Cali I have been here for 4 years and I will never leave :) Changes are always good, it wont take long for you to find all the cool places to go and see :)

Amanda @ It's Blogworthy said...

All good things. I can't wait to hear about your celebrity run-ins :)

Kelsey @ Seattle Smith's said...

So much joy!!!

Just my hometown pride opinion, but you should totally spotlight some perks of Long Beach itself. I mean it's famous for Snoop Dogg & Sublime, and as you'll eventually find out a ton of other stuff! :)

I love the people with signs totally cool! And I love CA too, your going to love it!

Lindsey said...

I"m ashamed to say that I have never been to Cali - isn't that terrible?? Been many places, but that's still on my list!! Enjoy and take lots of pics!! =)
