Los Angeles Zoo

  Visited: Febuary 26th 2016 11:08 AM I have been to many zoos and was extremely decided to go to the Los Angles Zoo for the first time. I think just the fact that it was THE Los Angeles Zoo made my expectations so much higher. I was expecting something completely out of the ordinary … [Read more…]

Olvera Street

I recently had the opportunity to visit Olvera Street, I had been there before several years ago and I remember I was fascinated by everything and how “Mexican” things were. Now that I go there all I see is the advertisement made for the street and how it looked like a zoo; the Mexicans all … [Read more…]

Mulholland Drive

Earlier this week I found myself on Mulholland Drive on a road trip with some friends. Recognizing the name, I realized that this street was named after the man who masterminded the creation of the Los Angeles aqueduct. While William Mulholland was a very accomplished man, many of his accomplishments were at best morally gray. … [Read more…]

Long Beach Museum of Art

This past Friday I went to Long Beach Museum of Art, as admission is always free on this day.

Downtown Disney

I have been to Downtown Disney many times. I do not have a Disneyland pass, so I do enjoy going down there every once in a while to walk around and have a bite to eat. I have always loved to atmosphere down there; everyone is happy, there are bright colors and lights, and the … [Read more…]

Oldest McDonald’s

I live in Downey, California. Although the city has very few noteworthy features, one interesting fact is that it houses the oldest operational McDonald’s restaurant in the world. I drive past it every day on my way to school, and have even eaten there on a few occasions, but never truly understood its history. The … [Read more…]
