My husband and I live about two hours south of Los Angeles.
Every couple of months, we like to spend the weekend in the city.
We mainly make the trip for the sake of visiting Beverly Hills. We just love the area. We’ve found that the best weather is in the spring and fall, but we also appreciate the Christmas decorations on Rodeo Drive. Since we don’t go all that often, we allow ourselves to splurge. We spend a little extra money to start the day with breakfast at Polo Lounge and then we go shopping at Rodeo Drive. We typically do more window shopping than actual buying, but it’s always fun to explore the luxury shops and people watch. When we get tired of walking, we hop onto the Beverly Hills Trolley and take the 40 minute tour. For a snack, we always make a point to stop at the Sprinkles Cupcake Bakery. It operates like an ATM but gives out fresh cupcakes. Another point of interest is the local cannabis dispensary. Since we live in California, we have easy access to a variety of marijuana shops. We’ve shopped at all different types of dispensaries, from huge, modern facilities to cozy little boutique shops. The Beverly Hills location offers some unique products that we can’t find anywhere else. Their on-site bakery creates some absolutely amazing cannabis-infused cookies, brownies and chocolates. My husband can’t get enough of their peanut butter cups. I am a fan of cannabis-infused beverages. I would much rather drink a cannabis mocktail than actual alcohol. I can easily control the dosage and I avoid the hangover the next day. They also feature brands and strains of smokable flower with really amazing cannabinoid and terpene potency.
