I'm the type that books restaurant reservations before flights. And I'm an LA-based boy mom, writer and my friends' go-to recs person.
I love the mix of feeling like a local and discovering somewhere new, so I prioritize boutique hotels, neighborhood restaurants and really personalized experiences.
