Moving somewhere new means LOTS of new things. New coffee shops to find, new roads to learn, and most importantly, new places to explore. It can be extremely overwhelming trying to figure out what to do, especially if you're by yourself, but it doesn't have to be!
Finding new favorite places should be fun, and really not TOO difficult (considering Google). With that being said, living in LA there is one obvious choice of what to do: go to the beach! I've been trying to make it to the beach as much as possible, because I realize I won't always be able to drive five minutes for a post-work beach run.
The easiest way i've learned to discover new places is through running. I can scope out the area and if you're running by the beach, have an amazing view.
