Favorite LA Spots: The Griffith ObservatoryPosted: April 20, 2014
When James and I started dating, neither one of us was in an ideal financial situation, so we became pros at finding the best places in Los Angeles that we could go to for free. Thankfully, we are now both doing much better in our careers, but we constantly find ourselves revisiting the free spots because they truly are our favorite places in the area. In the next few weeks, I will be sharing photos from each of our favorite free LA spots, starting with the Griffith Observatory.
The Griffith Observatory is one of our favorite places for a multitude of reasons. For one, it is the site of our second date which occurred just two days after our first date. On our first date, James and I quickly discovered our mutual love for space exploration and science fiction, as well as sightseeing, so it was all too fitting to go to the observatory together shortly after.
Watching the sun set from the top of the observatory is a wonderful experience. You won’t find any place with better views of Los Angeles.
The telescope that calls the observatory home is fascinating, and presents a great learning opportunity to all of its visitors.
Aside from its wealth of knowledge, the Griffith Observatory is a beautiful sight to visit. Its astounding Deco detailing can only really be appreciated in person.
Whether you’re admiring it from up close, or from farther away, the Griffith Observatory is truly a treasure to the city of Los Angeles. We are so glad to have this lovely place to visit so close to home.
