Sometimes we think we need to travel to distant places to see beautiful sights but that's not necessarily true. If you do a little research you can find beautiful locations in your own city. This weekend was extremely hot so my friend and I decided to use our Saturday morning to take a paddle boat ride in Echo Park. This was a first for both of us; it was fun and nice to get out of the lazy Saturday morning routine. Get out there and see what beautiful sights your city has to offer, I think you will be pleasantly surprised.
