West Side Story

We finally got a taste of summer in Los Angeles. When the temps rise, it gives me an excuse to leave my east side home. The commute on the 10 doesn't seem as daunting when the sun is out. (And no one can deny the mood-boosting power of singing in the car with the windows down.) When I first moved to LA, I went to the beach as often as I could. The frigid east coast days still hung on my skin. The hot sand and waves, welcomed me back to my California roots. Now three years later, I barely find myself on the west side (unless for an audition or a meeting). To be honest, it feels like a chore to go to the beach, verse the escape it once was for me. 
Lately, my mind has been preoccupied with far away places, and destinations. It's ok to day dream, but I need to take time to fall in love with my city again. I am a person who doesn't like to stay in a place too long. I am hitting my five year mark with LA, and feeling the urge to pack up and go. My pact for the summer is to explore more. Find hidden areas out of my usual neighborhoods spots. Runaway to Venice or Malibu for the day, not worrying about the traffic. It is a simple change, but in LA, it is easy to get stuck in your little corners of the city. What are your favorite spots on the west side to try?
