Live It Up with Your Love in Los Angeles, California
When you hear someone talk about Los Angeles, I bet it is usually in reference to a Hollywood actress or actor, a musician or band, or a play or athlete? Am I right? And, you probably also think of Disney World when you think of LA. And, yes, all of these things are associated with the City of Angeles, but really, there is so much more to the city than just those superficial highlights. What? Well, it can also be thought of as the “City of Love.” Let’s face it; LA is glamorous and nostalgic, which conjures up feelings of euphoria and excitement. And, truth-be-told, there are tons of things you and your sweetheart can do, while in Los Angeles. Just use your creativity and be open to new experiences, and you and your significant other will emerge stronger and more resilient than ever before. You will also learn things about each other that you never knew. So, pay attention to my suggestions, and let’s rekindle the fire in your relationship.
Listed below are amazing tips on how to burn up LA with your love:
Paint & Sip Studio
If you want to unleash your creativity, relax, socialize, and spend time with your sweetheart, why don’t you sign up for a night at the Paint & Sip Studio, LA. And, what’s the best thing about this fabulous art studio? Well, it conjures up feelings of euphoria (happiness), peace, and creativity, of course. Paint & Sip Studio, LA is extremely calming and cozy, which is excellent for diffusing stress and tension in struggling relationships, and bringing those in happy relationships closer together. Win-win! And, we can’t forget that it is a BYOB (Bring Your Own Booze) establishment, so enjoy your favorite wine or beer, sit back, and recreate the featured painting of the night – alongside your sweetheart. After a night painting and sipping, you and your honey will be in a much better place.
Hip Cooks East Los Angeles
Hip Cooks West Los Angeles
I bet you didn’t know that a cooking class can actually bring you and your “boo” closer together. Well, it can and it will. How? Well, cooking together helps improve your communication and problem-solving skills. It also teaches you how to compromise. Yes, I said it C-O-M-P-R-O-M-I-S-E. So, regardless of whether you are an expert chef or a novice in the kitchen, this activity will allow you to hone your skills, have fun, and get a little messy. And, one of the things I love most about Hip Cooks is that it is not only a fun and affordable cooking school, it is also romantically themed. And, guess what? It usually comes with a free meal and a lot of booze, which always eases tension and improves moods.
Do you and your significant other need to work on your communication skills? If so, the Griffith Observatory is the best place to make that happen. How can the Observatory help your relationship? Well, once a month it offers a sunset hike guided by a Museum Guide and Park Ranger. The hike usually starts on the West Terrace of the Observatory then continues up the Charlie Turner trail. Once at the trail, hikers continue to the Berlin Forest, just north of the Observatory, before returning to the West Terrace. The trail is approximately a half a mile long, and it usually takes an hour to complete it. Hikers are encouraged to walk at their own paces, and the Museum Guide stops at various points during the hike to explain certain places of interest with the group (i.e. historical places and objects highlighted in the sky).
Once back at the Observatory, hikers can partake in the attractions the place is known for such as: viewing the downtown Los Angeles skyline through telescopes. Why is this good for your relationship? Well, because it encourages communication. It is an excellent way to talk with one another as you hike the trail. It is also a good way to work off the tension in your relationship (walking the trail will burn negative energy). Try to stay away from confrontational issues, and keep it light. The goal is to increase communication, so you don’t want to come across as too aggressive. After the walk, you and your honey will be too exhausted to fight, and over time, and repeated hikes the annoyed/sad/angry moods will lift and you will both realize how much you need one another.
What better way to reconnect with your significant other than through foods – tasty foods, exotic foods, and yummy foods. They say the best way to a person’s heart is through his or her tummy, so maybe it is time you and your honey to start eating. In fact, why don’t you participate in a foodie tour? A foodie tour?! Yes, why not? What does it consist of? Well, it is usually a multi-stop tour that hits 4-6 stops at different locations around the city or state. The featured foods tend to be cultural and come from various ethnic groups. And, guess what? This foodie tour only consists of the most delicious foods around Los Angeles. Lucky duck! A full stomach will not only lead to a happy individual, it will also lead a happy couple.
The Maze Room
Want to work on your problem-solving skills and have a blast at the same time? Yes? Well, why don’t you and your sweetheart check out the Maze Room? Why this activity? Well, it will cause you and your significant other to work together to solve the clues, so you can get out of the maze. It literally forces you and your honey to talk to each other and come up with ideas on how to solve the maze, so you can emerge victorious. So, while in the maze your differences will not matter – in fact the only thing that will matter is “teamwork” and communication, which is needed for all successful unions.
