I may have the opportunity find out for myself soon enough. There's a chance I'll be working a client account out in Satan's den itself.

Roosh, are you taking US-101 and then SR-1 from Portland to San Francisco (and eventually LA)? I did that drive a few years ago, and it's a beautifully scenic route since it hugs the Pacific coast almost the whole time.

RE: My 2019 tour through the United States
Hello all. This post is a bit dated, as I wasn't a member of the forum prior. I attended the Chicago talk and happy hour. It was a well-run event and Roosh was very warm and inviting. The talk itself was outstanding. If you have a chance to attend one of the upcoming events, I highly recommend you do so.

On a personal note, I had a chance to chat with Roosh about Orthodoxy and he was kind enough to share some of his favourite Orthodox Chants with me. ([Be careful with non-obvious jokes that can be interpreted differently -Mod])

Edit. Roosh, thanks for sharing the Abbot's book recommendation - "On the Providence of God" by St. John Chrysostom. I'll have to check out that book.

In the other threads, I mentioned St. John Chrysostom quite frequently as his writings and books are a big part of the Eastern/Russian Orthodox Church's Divine Liturgy for anyone who's looking into Orthodoxy Church.

There are so many amazingly beautiful places in the US.

I agree with Roosh - travel sucks. I hate travelling. I love being in these places, but the travel part sucks.

I really enjoyed driving across the US when I did it. It’s much more fun if you don’t have strict deadlines and can minimize use of the interstate.

I agree. My body hurts sitting still for more than an hour or two on long road trips and 24 hours worth of flying on planes takes me a week to recover from the fatigue, just about when its time to go home at the end of your standard american two week vacation is just when youre about feeling up to really enjoy things and have a "vacation", but then you just get to go on another 24 hours of plane rides to the mountain of work waiting at the office as you spend another week to recover.

I am spending a week or two in mexico in December with some friends and Look forward to the short 5 hour plane ride since it wont be too bad.

Roosh, did you go down to the wharf and the pier areas? They used to be pretty touristy and assume they still are, but just curious about the homeless situation there and if you saw tents.

SF surprisingly sounds pretty similar to what it was like in the early 2000s, perhaps even a little cleaner than I remembered it although I didn't see tents. The tenderloin was awful back then too, so no surprise there.

It's not in the greatest neighborhood, but Union Station is worth a visit in LA.

It's interesting to see this old grand railway station -- certainly the best in the west -- and wonder at how important it would have been for travellers in the past.

Maybe being from the east, you will have seen plenty of majestic rail stations, but for a western boy it was something special.

Also, Griffith Park (in Los Feliz area) is great for a long walkaround.

RE: My 2019 tour through the United States
One interesting place is the San Gabriel Valley of Greater LA. This is the epicenter of both Chinese-Americans and unassimilated new arrivals from Mainland China in the country. This area is about 80% Asian.

In the past few years, this area has seen a massive influx of wealthy, politically connected Mainland Chinese who brought their own culture with them and spend minimal effort to integrate with mainstream American culture. In fact, they are starting to displace the established Asian-Americans. From a touristic purpose, this can be interesting.

St. Michael's Orthodox Church is in Whittier, about an hour / hour and a half east of downtown. It's the biggest and most well-known Western Rite Orthodox parish in California, possibly in the United States. Basically it's what the Romans were doing before the Great Schism, so it's done in Gregorian rather than Byzantine chant and the services are more linear and Catholic-looking. It's a great community if you get the chance to swing by.

RE: My 2019 tour through the United States
When I lived there long ago, I always liked Venice Beach. Hollywood Blvd is probably the other top place to walk around. Unfortunately, these might be shockingly filthy and decadent now, but they were nice back in the day. Might be the best two places to see freaks and trannies.

Topanga Canyon from the San Fernando Valley down to the ocean is a beautiful drive. Mulholland drive in the Hollywood hills is a great drive as well.

Griffith Observatory is interesting. Point Vincente is an observation center at Rancho Palos Verdes where whales often pass close by. I've seen one there before, and they have volunteers out counting pretty much every day. Catalina Island is across the water from the point. I always liked seeing the waves crash against the rocks there as well.

Mount Wilson has a fantastic view, and a beautiful drive to get there. It's in the mountain range north of Pasadena, which rises 5000 ft over the LA region. It's great to see this after sunset when you can see city lights for 100 miles. You can tour the observatory as well.

If you are at the beach at sunset, try to watch for a green flash just as the last bit of the sun sinks below the water on the horizon. It's just a tiny momentary green spark for 1/4 second or so. I've seen one once out of many times watching for it. Often it seems like there are clouds on the horizon at sunset. Note that you can try this anywhere on the Pacific coast, not just LA.

RE: My 2019 tour through the United States
Palos Verde has a Trump golf course that has walking areas open to the public. There are usually very few people there because LA liberals won't go due to him being "waycist". Its pleasant and has a nice view and cool breeze. The drive up the hill is a lot of fun.

Must do: Hit up Joshua Tree National Park on your way east out of LA. I've been multiple times and there's incredible views. There are some people there but not your annoying tourist types and its quite peaceful.

Redondo Beach, on the South Bay, is a nice town that has a relaxed vibe to it. You won't see any homeless other than the one bag lady that patrols Esplanade (I lived there for a few years). For a great breakfast hit up Cozy Cafe. There's a Greek Orthadox church that hosts a yearly Greek Festival that is a lot of fun with families, traditional dancing and food. https://www.stkatherinegoc.org/

LA can be a tricky city to navigate since it is so spread out, very suburban (not a lot of areas have people walking around regularly), and plenty of worthwhile neighborhoods are miles apart from each other. Here is what I would recommend.

Santa Monica - The area near the Promenade and Santa Monica pier is filled with tourists and homeless, so would only suggest visiting briefly (if at all). However, if you walk along Ocean Ave. north of Wilshire, you quickly enter a far more pleasant neighborhood with a great view of the beach from the cliffs. I would suggest walking (or driving) up to Montana and heading east. The area from from 9th to 16th street is really laid back with nice restaurants and generally a pleasant vibe.

Venice - If you want to see the quintessential "Los Angeles" area, go to Venice. The Boardwalk is alongside one of the most picturesque beaches in the state, though it is filled with tourists, weed shops, and boatloads of homeless (and a great poke spot called Poke Poke... otherwise the food is awful). Just a few blocks away, you enter Abbott Kinney, where suddenly the homeless problem vanishes and you have an ultra-trendy area. Its also worth checking out the Venice canals for a pleasant walk... there's almost nobody around them, and plenty of LA locals don't even know they exist. Venice is a mixed bag, but in regard to people watching and just getting a feel for the city, there's no better place.

I also second Redondo Beach, that's a great area. I also like Hermosa Beach a lot and highly recommend Martha's 22nd Street Grill for breakfast or lunch if you end up there. Palos Verdes is a great place as well, Abalone cove is one of my favorite places in California. It is a drive from the center of LA though.

West Hollywood, for sure. Take a walk down Santa Monica Boulevard, and do some shopping at the Whole Foods and Trader Joe's in WeHo.

If you are really curious, visit The Abbey or Rage... but I don't recommend it. Confused

The Griffith Observatory is a must visit. It really puts Los Angeles in perspective.

Union Station and Philippe the Original are great as well. It's right across the street from the post office where Bukowski used to work... If you want to imagine what Los Angeles was like 100 years ago, Union Station and the surrounding area is the best place to go.

I’d recommend the Getty villa and Getty center. Griffith observatory is nice as well.

Getty villa is my favorite for the architecture.

Upright citizens brigade, groundlings, and second city are some of the best improv theaters west of Chicago.


Check out Venice beach and Malibu beaches if you like beaches. Los Angeles isn’t a bad town but traffic sucks .
