When the East Coast settles into winter temperatures, there’s really only two ways to deal with it. Go into full-on hibernation mode, or pack a bag and make a run for it. If you’re following me on Social Media, you know by now that I chose the latter – and hopped on a plane to LAX (cue that Miley song). 

The last and only time I visited LA was brief, so I was super happy to finally spend some quality time in the City of Angels – both for work and fun. I was determined to explore as many parts of the city as possible, and if I thought my social schedule’s survival was depending on transport in NY, Los Angeles was a whole other story. Getting around in Cali without a car is close to impossible – so Uber will be your best wingman.



Depending on your tolerance for heat (and crowds), LA is always a good idea.

March – May: Spring. Long sleeves morning and night, but most afternoons will be warm enough for the beach.

June – August: Summer is peak season, it’s hot and busy, but for good reason.

September – November: Similar temperatures to Spring, incredible sunsets.

December – Feb: “Winter” Hardly though. No parka needed.the-rue-collective-california-uber-7
