Welcome to the first post in our series 1030 Destinations, our inspiring experiences and innovative findings from around the world. Our first journey brings us to no other place than the entertainment capital of the world: lovely, laid-back Los Angeles.

  There is no doubt this city has to offer something for everybody: beautiful beaches, charming parks, an exciting nightlife, tons of excellent restaurants, an intriguing art scene, and much, much more. However, not to bore you with all the famous sights and hot spots that you must have seen on TV 100 times, being the innovators and trend hunters that we are, we specifically kept an eye out for cool and creative discoveries around the city. And be sure, there are tons!   Check out our pictures below to get just a small impression of some of our favorite findings.   We hope to see you again soon, city of angels!
