Ever since my visit to the original site of McDonald's now a museum owned by the Japanese owner of the Juan Pollo chain, I've wanted to try his rotissertie chicken. The chicken exceeded my expectations -- especially his potato salad. If you see one when you're in San Bernardino County, you'll have to try it.
Living Zoo and Gardens. I struggle with my zoo visits and seeing animals in captivity, but you're pretty limited in things to do. There's hiking, but it's hot right now in the desert. There's a hiking trail you can attempt when the weather is cooler. For $25 for my visit, I wouldn't go back. I still remember my visit with my friends taking a picture with sign back when I was 18. Glad to finally make it inside to check it out.
I love exploring Los Angeles like a tourist. I have as much fun in my hometown as I do traveling to another country. I hope my adventures inspire you to eat well and travel often.
