Hi team. I'm after some quick advice from those W's who know the LA area.
Friends of mine are heading to the US for a touring holiday. They want to pick up some good quality, lightweight hiking boots, preferably from Los Angeles as this is where they are commencing their holiday.
They will be spending time in LA central and Anaheim areas.
Does anyone here know of a good store in those areas that is worth them looking for?
I'd send them to the REI in Santa Monica (rei.com). That puts them right by Venice Beach, near Beverly Hills & some of the other sightseeing places, & on the ocean drive along the foot of the mountains heading for Santa Barbara -- something for everybody, & a more interesting area than any arbitrary suburb.
Good thought, but no dice. There's just a spare bedroom / sewing room back there -- also climate-controlled. I did dare to open one of the bottles of Diet Coke. Smells really, really weird! Some kind of fake, metallic, lime-like smell.
