For this new edition of Oh Joy Day Trip, we're headed to Culver City! Since I live on the East Side of Los Angeles, I rarely make it to Culver City, but I need to get there more. There are so many great, new spots to see, explore, and eat! Come check it out…
Rabbit Ladder at Platform — This kids store opened recently, and we're loving the mix of decor, clothing, books, toys, and gifts! The store's decor focuses on imagination as it feels totally playful and light inside.
Baco Shop — A sandwich spin-off to Baco Mercat in Downtown LA, this restaurant serves what feels like a mix between a gyro and a sandwich. We had the grilled steak, slow roasted pork, and Chile shrimp bacos (which was a favorite!). We also loved the Baco snax – with hummus and a good mix of olives and nuts. All of it was just delicious!
Midland – For a little shopping to treat yourself, take a trip to Midland which has a rustic, Ojai feel to it. It's pretty and simple, beautiful luxuries with variety of things ranging from essential oils to curated kids pieces to clothing local indie designers.
Hi-Lo — At the end of your day, if you're headed home or back to your AirBnB, stop by Hi-Lo to pick up drinks for the evening, snacks, or delicious pantry items. The shop is beautiful and well-designed and doesn't look like any other liquor store you've ever seen. You can pick up a pint of Jeni's ice cream here, too!
Nomad Truck — To end your day, stop by the Nomad truck for some Milk & Honey soft serve. We loved that it wasn't too sweet and had a lot of great textures with honey-oat shortbread, brittle, and meringue cylinders.
