Getaway: Escape to Los Angeles
Let a local show you the town with Los Angeles Urban Adventures! On their Total Los Angeles tour, you’ll escape the clichés and see the best of LA in just a day while getting off the beaten path and discovering the city’s lesser-known sites.
Rosaliné is a must try for those who crave fresh ingredients and savory flavors. The restaurant is an ode to Peruvian cuisine with a California twist – simple perfection. Set among hanging plants and slate color palates, it’s trendy – but in the most modest way. P.S. don’t miss out on the cocktails.
