An Escape to and from LA

On Sunday my friends and I went on a day trip to LA to visit friends, eat, and just get out of our ordinary routines. While you may call that a “weekend escape”, we found being in LA a rather stressful experience – the traffic, the parking.. urg. Luckily we stumbled across Grand Hope Park, a tiny urban oasis next to FIDM where people napped on grass and kids played in an urban beach. Surrounded by tall apartment buildings, the park provided a sense of peace and quiet that I’ve rarely experienced in LA.
