Four Day Weekend?

November 23, 2011

Take a daycation up at the

J. Paul Getty Museum

1200 Getty Center Drive
Los Angeles, California 90049

I’ve heard ramblings about something that starts with Black and ends with Friday. If the long lines in the wee hours aren’t calling you and things you can’t afford during reasonable hours sound more interesting, head over to the Getty. It will be worth it even if you just want to catch a beautiful sunset. Worth it because it is free (only $15 parking fee) and you can hover over the crazed holiday crowds while sipping on a latte.

If you must see some great art while you are there, they have a wonderful exhibition up for the PST collaboration. California artists are at their best.

Pacific Standard Time: Crosscurrents in L.A. Painting and Sculpture, 1950–1970
Daily through February 5, 2012

After the art, grab some food at the café and sit on their modest extravagant marble porch designed by architect Richard Meier. You can stroll through the pristine gardens or just grab a coffee from the cart at the top too. There isn’t a bad seat in the house. It’s a day well spent. If you have four of them, why not do something with a view.


While you are there fill your lungs with the fresh air above the LA city streets. Take a moment and prepare for the next step in the holiday season.
