Drink Your Greens Jenna Ritter

After a hike or surf in Palos Verdes, stop at The Punchbowl in the Riviera Village. They have a great selection of cold-pressed juices and nutrient-packed shakes that make for the perfect afternoon refresher. I love the Green Colada smoothie! 


Coastal Cool Jenna Ritter

We love adventuring all over the Southern California coast, but most recently, we spent a weekend in Cambria and Paso Robles. We went wine tasting at Niner Winery, hiked, hung at the beach and ate great seafood at sunset. We stayed at Ocean Point Ranch; I highly recommend snagging a firepit after sunset.  


Downtown Dining Jenna Ritter

Besides the restaurants in my group, I would have to say my favorite restaurant is Redbird in Downtown LA. I love their outdoor dining setup! It’s a gorgeous oasis in the middle of the bustling city. Make sure to check out both the courtyard and garden dining areas. I absolutely love their green gazpacho and prawn dish, and their cocktail game is strong. 

Relax in Redondo

The rooftop pool at Shade Hotel Redondo Beach overlooks the coast from Palos Verdes all the way to Malibu! Pro tip: ask about their day passes and work poolside during the week! 


Let’s Celebrate

Manhattan Beach Holiday Fireworks is my favorite holiday activity in Los Angeles. Unfortunately, it doesn’t look like it is happening this year, but I also love the Venice Canal Holiday Boat Parade!
