31 Days of Los Angeles

The entire month of October will be dedicated to exploring my new home, Los Angeles, and I want you to tell me where to go!

31 Days of Los Angeles

When I first learned of Myquillyn Smith (The Nester)'s #Write31Days challenge, I was a little intimidated.  31 Days is an online writing challenge in which bloggers choose one topic and post about that topic every day in October.  Since it started with one blogger in 2009, it has grown to over 1200 participants.

After I got over my fear about posting every single day, I realized that this would be a great opportunity to really expand the content available on a topic.  And what a great way to force myself to get out and explore my new hometown (which also happens to be a popular tourist location), Los Angeles!

City of Angels, The Big Orange, La-La Land, Tinseltown!  Los Angeles is the most populous city in California, and the second-most populous in the United States (after New York City).  It has a population of 3,792,621 (based on the 2010 US Census) and a land area of 469 square miles.

Every day in October, I'll be sharing new information and photos of Los Angeles!  You can bookmark this page, as it will serve as the index for 31 Days of Los Angeles, and I will continue to update it with links of new posts as they are published.

I want your help deciding where to go and what to write about!  Do you have suggestions on where I should visit?  Maybe you've been someplace in LA that you know I'll love.  Or maybe there is an attraction that you're considering seeing on your visit and think I should check out...

Where in Los Angeles should I go?  Let me know in the comments below!
