I have booked flights to go to L.A. and visit my ds. Dh can’t go because of work. I’m spending three nights with him (well - in a hotel near him) and then heading to the San Diego area for three nights to see my college roommate who lives there - yay!
Anyway, dh and I visited ds two summers ago, and had I not had some thoughts on what I wanted to go do, I don’t know that he would have really planned anything. The dynamic will be slightly different without dh there. If he asks what I might like to do, what should I have at the ready to suggest? Just in case he doesn’t come up with something on his own. Ds is very outdoorsy, but I am not. I mean, I can do plenty of walking, but I am not a hiker. Last time we went to the Getty museum at my suggestion. He was also living in Santa Monica last visit, so that was walkable and had things to see. We have done some Hollywood stuff on other trips Chinese theater, Staples, that sort of thing. He loves theme parks, but we have also done all of those in the past.
I don’t mind springing for any and all activities. I will want to request a chance to see his friends - we did that last time, and it was super fun.
Are the tar pits only something for little kids? I don’t think he has ever been there.
He has a car, and we can drive anywhere that is reasonably close.
Who has some great ideas for me for things for an old women and her 20-something son to do together in L.A.?
