We traveled a few days to Southern California this past week to visit some college campuses for Inès, my oldest one. She’s now a junior in high school and is starting to look at universities to apply to, starting next year. We flew to Los Angeles and rented an Airbnb in Venice Beach. The apartment we rented was lovely, super well located and our host, Dara, was beyond welcoming and friendly; we walked around Venice to discover this fantastic area and followed many of Dara’s personal recommendations.
We all absolutely loved Venice Beach. The vibe, the people, the shops, the beach walk, the food spots, oh and the weather, with a whopping 90 degrees in October!
We also wandered around Abbott Kinney Boulevard, had a delicious brunch at The Butcher’s Daughter – I highly recommend their avocado toast benedict, so yummy! We also played paparazzi in front of the gorgeous street murals Abbott Kinney offers.
We’re planning other visits of California and other states campuses for both girls in the coming year [Maya is just a year behind her sister], so stay tuned!
Do you have kids heading to college soon? Such an exciting and scary time, isn’t it?
