I feel as though my summer is slipping away from me. I woke up and half of July is gone! I have so much I want to do and there is always so much to see here in Los Angeles…I don’t want to waste it. To give myself a kick in the pants I’ve created my own summer challenge – the Tour Your Hometown Challenge, to be a tourist in my own hometown. Here’s are the goals:
- Take 3 formal tours
Feeling like a tourist, means – to act as a tourist does!
- Check out 3 hotel lobby bars
This will be fun – let’s get a view of the world from the eyes of a hotel guest.
- Visit 3 museums
I love museums, so this is not hard for me – I will likely visit more than 3.
- Walk 3 new neighborhoods
There are a number of fairly tourist areas that I often shy away from to avoid the crowds. The challenge here is to venture out into these areas with fresh eyes.
- View the city from 3 different heights
I love to see the city from above! I have a few good ideas here – places that I have been meaning to go, but just haven’t made it yet. It will happen this summer!
- Meet 3 tourists
Spending time in these tourist-filled areas should make it much easier to meet some folks from out of town. My goal is 3, but I hope to meet more.
Summer officially ends on September 21st – that gives me exactly 70-days to accomplish these 6-tasks. Spice up your summer and learn something about your hometown – Take the Tour Your Hometown Challenge!
Stay tuned for an update on my progress.
