It's Always Magic Hour in LA



As they say, all good things must come to an end. The sun will set (pun intended) on our daily live feed from Hotel Erwin in Venice Beach on May 31, but don’t despair! The beaches are now open to runners, surfers and swimmers.

Hotel Erwin has stepped up to sweeten the deal. Enjoy 30% off rates for future bookings, or give the gift of vitamin D + Sea to someone who needs our beautiful sunsets IRL.

Activities to Keep You Busy

Hello Park La Brea Residents! 

We hope you and your families are staying safe and healthy during this unprecedented time in the world. Given our increasingly confined circumstances, many of us have been trying to find new and creative ways to keep both our minds and bodies active while staying at home. Some of us are binge watching television shows we never quite got around to before while others are testing their culinary skills with more challenging recipes than they’ve previously had time to tackle. We have been brainstorming and wanted to share a few potentially fun activities for you to try: 

  • Virtual Book Club – The “Quarantine Book Club” will allow people from all over to join book discussions with the authors themselves.
  • Daily Live-Streaming Music Performances – This website is being updated each day with a schedule of all artists who will be performing live music via streaming services such as Instagram Live, Facebook Live, YouTube, etc. Many musicians are doing weekly (if not daily) live streams to help keep both their fans and themselves entertained while social distancing.
  • 125 Quarantine Activities for Kids – Whether you’re a stay-at-home parent or you’re living that working from home life right now, there are plenty of ways to keep the whole family from going stir-crazy.
  • 12 At-Home Workouts You Can Do Without Any Equipment – The best at-home workouts don’t necessarily require a ton of equipment—or any equipment—other than your own bodyweight.
  • Netflix Party – Netflix Party is a new way to watch Netflix with your friends online. Netflix Party synchronizes video playback and adds group chat to your favorite Netflix shows.

This was a Beautiful Message from the City of Los Angeles

Los Angeles


While our favorite places to explore and the treasures we all love have had to close temporarily across our dynamic destination, we wanted you to know our hearts remain open. 

Right now, it’s important we all heed the advice of public health officials: avoid non-essential travel, practice social distancing and good public health hygiene!

Los Angeles has always been a virtual city, a city of the future. Like most of the rest of the world, your first experience with Los Angeles was a favorite film or TV show. Or maybe it was watching the Rose Parade on a below-zero New Year’s morning from the Midwest. So, as we weather these times, join us in supporting the amazing museums that have stepped up to offer free online tours of their collections. Order from the restaurants like the iconic Apple Pan who are offering delivery for the first time in their 73-year history. Rewatch your favorite LA films – we challenge you to find the bloopers in "Pee Wee’s Big Adventure" and groove to the 70s humor of "Car Wash".

When the time comes, we will welcome you with open arms, and until then we’ll keep sharing L.A.’s renowned spirit of creativity, optimism and positive vibes. We can do this.

Let’s all stay safe and get through this together.

With Love,

Los Angeles
