Was That the Best Time of Year to Go? Yes, it was the best time for me as it was my birthday as well as a surprise trip. And the weather was perfect.

Who Went With Me? My best friend at the time, Chris Walker, who  happens to be my husband now

How Did You Get There From Dallas? Aircraft – Southwest Airlines or American Airlines

Other Tips For Fellow Travelers: Don’t miss out on going to Hollywood, and for a nice romantic evening, go to the Greek Theatre, particularly as the sun is setting. We went there to hear the great sounds of Chris Botti and had such a lovely time.
