MUST VISIT! You absolutely cannot beat the Castaway for the view! They revamped it a few years ago so it looks modern, the food is exceptional and the views are seriously the best in the city. I recommend making a reservation, go on a weekend night but be prepared to wait for outdoor seating— you could be waiting for a couple of hours. I always eat a small snack before I go or recommend getting a drink at the bar with a snack while you wait. They do not allow you to reserve the outdoor seating which is where you absolutely must sit so when you get there, ask for outdoor seating and again, be prepared to wait! I highly recommend it. Also, fire pits are first come, first serve so try to wait around them and snag them when people leave. Also, great for brunch and gorgeous insta pics during golden hour (the hour before sunset).

Go here for the carry out drinks. 30-35 dollars for 32 ounces, you can take to go to enjoy at our place. I love the white peach margarita and sangria- lots of sugar, you are warned! You must order a food item with it to carry out drinks. If you don’t want to eat much, you can order a mini Pizookie with it or some brussel sprouts.

This is not technically outdoors but pickwick ice is a large rink with food and hot chocolate and stands for people to sit and take a break from ice skating. Adjacent to pickwick ice, is pickwick bowling and pickwick gardens. These are all fun venues to enjoy some activities! I suggest eating food before you get there.

Brace Canyon is a large park tucked into the hills- it has a large lawn for grilling/picnics and tennis courts! They also have a playground with swings with a nice atmosphere- I recommend it! During COVID, grab some coffee, some breakfast sandwiches and eat in the park before playing some tennis!

You cannot go wrong with a day or two at Santa Monica beach. SM beach has 3rd street promenade which has tons of shopping, food, bars and street entertainment. then head over to the beach and enjoy some time in the sand. Then at night, make your way to the Santa Monica Pier and play some arcade games, go on the ferris wheel (a must!) and enjoy a beautiful walk down to the end of the pier.

If you're looking for a funkier vibe, venice beach is your place. There are vendors and funky stores along the boardwalk and all in all, I love going to Venice to people-watch, get a nice walk in. I recommend getting some iced coffees before heading there and enjoy sips while walking.

Burbank Town Center has a lot of restaurants, shops and is a lively place, particularly at night. I recommend coming here around the winter holiday season for pictures with the giant tree. I usually get a coffee at coffee bean or starbucks or a froyo and walk around. There is also pizza, sushi, wings and even more food options. In the summer, there are people who play music and also some entertainment like dancing. There is also a giant AMC 16 movie theater here for any movie lovers!

NBC, Warner, Universal and ABC studios are a huge part of Burbank life! Warner brothers offers tours- I suggest booking an early tour and going out to eat for lunch afterwards. NBC tapes the Conan O'Brien show here- book tickets early through their website and make sure you ate before you go. The wait time can be long to get in, the show itself is under an hour.

Between sunrise and golden hour, the lighting on this street is wonderful and the sidewalk is lined with palm trees for gorgeous instaworthy photos that give you that quintessential LA vibe. Wait for a period where there are no cars and snap a few shots in the middle of the street with the palm trees lining each side of the photo.
