California Summer Bucket List

I've mentioned before that come fall, I'll be leaving my home-state of California for London. Despite being incredibly honored and excited by this move, there are several things in California that I still haven't experienced and should! As I look to my future, I see a myriad of wonderful sights and adventures that I'll be able to face with equally as wonderful people, but I won't have the opportunity to be in California as often and to be with the awe-inspiring culture that surrounds the state. This being my last summer as a full-time Californian, I've constructed a California Bucket List for my friends and I to complete before we go our separate ways.
  1. Venice Beach
  2. Santa Monica Beach and Pier
  3. Malibu Beach 
  4. Sherman Oaks Galleria
  5. The Americana
  6. Hike to the Hollywood Sign
  7. Get ice cream from Milk
  8. Vasquez Rocks
  9. Griffith Observatory
  10. The Getty
  11. Charlie Brown Farms
  12. LA Zoo
  13. Poppy Reserve
  14. The Cat House 
  15. Six Flags Magic Mountain
  16. Universal Studios Hollywood
  17. Watch a movie at El Capitan
  18. See a musical at the Pantages Theatre 
  19. The Getty
  20. Scoops Ice Cream
  21. LACMA
  22. Aquarium of the Pacific. 
This list is far from complete and there's no way I could ever do all the amazing things this state has to offer in one summer. These are just some that really stuck out to me. As I check spots off of the list, I'll be making independent blog posts and linking them here so check back often and leave your experiences in the comments. Is there any place I absolutely MUST visit that isn't listed? Let me know!
