categories: Active Dates, Date Idea, Los Angeles Dates, Travel

With the help of our trusty guide, you and your date can break a sweat together and learn a thing or two about Hollywood history in the process.

Step 1: Nail Down The Logistics

  • Lowdown –  This is an easy/moderate hike that should last approx 2-3 hours and takes you to the top of Mt. Lee (the highest mountain in LA) right above the Hollywood Sign.  Note that there are security fences that prevent you from getting right next to the Sign, but you’ll be able to get very close and enjoy amazing panoramic views of Los Angeles and the San Fernando valley.
  • Trail condition – The trail is in well maintained and in fine condition.  It does get steep, especially towards the end, but so long as you are in decent shape and take your time, you should be able to do the hike without a problem. Continue reading >

categories: Date Idea, Los Angeles Dates, Romantic Ideas, Travel

Olga and I took Eva to the Huntington Library, and we were blown away.  This is a real gem in Pasadena that far too few people visit.  We encourage you to enjoy an afternoon there, and hope this guide helps make your date a smashing success.  For our complete guide to an Epic Date in Pasadena, sign up for our free ebook which you can get access to at the bottom of this post!

Step 1: Nail Down the Logistics – We’ve done the research for you so you won’t hit any snags :)

  • Lowdown –  If you are an art buff, you’ll enjoy the Library’s kick-ass art collection, most notably its manuscripts and rare books collection.  But the real highlight, at least for us, was the beautifully manicured grounds and gardens.  It’s hard to find a more romantic setting than the 12 specialized gardens, including our favorites the Desert Garden, the Japanese Garden, the Rose Garden, and the Chinese Garden.
  • Where – The Huntington is located near Pasadena in the city of San Marino, approximately twelve miles northeast of downtown Los Angeles.
