Title: “Locals Know the Best Spots for Basic B*tches in the Overrated City of Angels”
Header 1: Introduction – The Hype is Real
Let’s face it, everyone loves to be basic. And when it comes to being basic in America, Los Angeles takes the cake. From Lululemon-clad tourists sipping pumpkin spice lattes at The Grove to wannabe influencers posing with their avocado toast at Urth Caffé, LA is a mecca for those looking to embody every stereotype imaginable.
But fear not, fellow basics! Locals know that beneath the overhyped surface of this city lie some true gems – spots that will make you feel just unique enough while still being able to flex your Instagram game (because let’s be real, if you didn’t post it online did it really happen?).
Header 2: In-N-Out Burger – Because Burgers Aren’t Basic Enough
Of course we had to start off with something food related – because let’s always begin this way. You may think that the ubiquitous In-N-Out Burger is already as basic as they come; however true Angelenos know there are ways to elevate this fast-food chain from mundane burger joint into an iconic #foodie destination.
Order “Animal Style” and watch as all of your friends marvel at the secret sauce raining down like manna from heaven onto your paper-wrapped cheeseburger. For bonus points, snap a pic holding up one of their cardboard hats or wearing an In-N-Out T-shirt…you know you’ve seen them before.
Header 3: Runyon Canyon – Slay Your Workout Game
Every influencer worth their salt has documented themselves hiking through Runyon Canyon under bright blue skies on Facebook Live. This trail provides plenty of sweating opportunities…or merely posting pictures where anyone can see how fit and happy they are…and showing people there was never any sweat.
Bonus points if you complete the ‘second peak’ and confide in your followers that once you get to the top of “circus hill” it looks soooooo awesome. Just be sure to have a girlfriendSponsored Product on standby, strategically placed off-camera ready to snap any seemingly effortless photo for #motivationmonday.
Header 4: Griffith Observatory – Celestial Beauty
One place always crowded and hyped (and also free!). For those we admire celestial beauty this high above our heads such as constellations or planets – the gorgeous Griffith Observatory has it all under one roof. This iconic landmark offers sweeping views of Los Angeles and from here you can sneak in some guilt-free day drinking wine or beer while posing for photos with inspirational quotes like Live, Love and Loud Music!
So make sure to head up right before sunset because nothing screams “spiritual awakening” quite like watching Mother Nature do her thing behind someone else’s iPhone camera lens as they attempt an artistic angle over your shoulder.
Header 5: Santa Monica Pier – Fun in The Sun
Up next at number five is the classic staple of LA beach hangouts- Santa Monica Pierce; where a cute ice cream cone will steal anyone’s heart! Here basics flock around seagulls scavenging potential food scraps, taking pictures with selfie sticks trying not got photobomb bystanders soaking wet with tourists creating havoc playing operator with Ferris wheels unknowingly snapping finger death traps…you know, just enjoying our summer #vibes
If none of these optionsSponsored Product appeal to you then simply walk along Route 66 , staring out towards nothingness whilst Queen’s Bohemian Rhapsody blares through your earphones as hundreds Of people bump into each other attempting exactly what came naturally walking down London Bridge…
HEADER 6: Ace Hotel Rooftop Bar – Finally A Club That Will Accept Your Netflix Obsession
There are plenty rooftop bars in LA, but this one is definitely worth a mention as it’s not just any rooftop bar – it’s THE Ace Hotel Rooftop Bar. The youthful crowd here already knows the glory of hip hop music over warm malibu sunsets whilst they mix alcohol with Netflix without ever actually watching an episode – and if you see someone who does, feel free to yell at them about wasting their time outside enjoying vibes.
The velvet couches are Instagram fodder waiting for your slightly-less-basic-than-average-non-hipster photo shoot. All filters highly recommended so that others always have some interesting caption suggestions on hand (just don’t forget to tag the place in case anyone missed how ‘gangster’ or stylish you will appear!)
HEADER 7: Beverly Hills – Soak Up Laziness (And Wealth)
It would be criminal not to include Beverly Hills amongst our specially picked low-key places in LA. This small city seems particularly made out for strolling around sipping lattes while gawking at opulent mansions behind closed gates and reinforced security systems…or walking down Rodeo Drive pretending you can afford shopping bags from Gucci or Cartier, perfect for “oh both? Don’t be ridiculous” moments.
Ultimately Beverly Hills thrives purely because people enjoy consuming expensive cocktails inside million-dollar hotels where no one cares if everyone is wearing $300 T-shirts that cannot stand up against food stains…not once attempting to lecture people concerning fashion Vs aesthetics Vs common sense!
