It’s June. In Los Angeles, it’s already 74 degrees Fahrenheit despite the June gloom (cloudy skies usually occurring around late spring and early summer in southern California); Los Angeles is a city where perfect weather rhymes with beach. Besides LA’s rich, and well-known architectural heritage that can be seen through historical buildings in Hollywood, Downtown LA, Santa Monica, Venice Beach, and all throughout Southern California, “Tinsel town” remains one of the best cities in the world for its food scene that has plenty to offer.
