I experienced the city I adore from a completely new perspective last weekend - from above! Since moving to LA and falling in love with this city, it’s been on my bucket list to experience the city from a bird's eye view on a helicopter. I had never before flown in a helicopter so didn’t know exactly what to expect, but I was surprised at how much I LOVED flying through the sky! The views were obviously incredible and the journey felt like I was sitting on a cloud, floating through the (sorta smoggy) beautiful So Cal sky. The ride was pretty gentle and I didn’t feel nervous or uncomfortable at any point throughout the flight. My first time in a helicopter was such a surreal experience, and I love reliving this afternoon by looking at some of the pictures posted above.
My best friend Liz and I went on Elite Helicopter’s VIP Helicopter Tour – because very important ladies need a very important tour ;). Elite’s website shares, “If you’re looking for an amazing ride and a chance to see all of Hollywood, Downtown L.A., Santa Monica and more, our VIP Helicopter Tour is the perfect choice for you. Nowhere else can you see all of these amazing landmarks on one fantastic ride and a chance to witness how diverse the terrain of Los Angeles really is.” About a 45 ride through the Los Angeles sky, we were able to enjoy views of the Santa Monica mountains, Malibu’s coastline and Pacific Coast Highway, Malibu Pier, Santa Monica Pier and coastline, The Getty Center, Downtown L.A. (my favorite part by far!!!), Griffith Park Observatory, Hollywood Sign, Universal Studios, and so much more.
Experiencing Los Angeles from this new and exciting perspective allowed me to adopt an even greater appreciation for the unique beauty of our city. From the Pacific coastline to the downtown skyscrapers to the hills of Hollywood, our city is so incredibly diverse and truly offers something special for everyone. I will absolutely #FlyWithElite in Los Angeles again but hope to fly during sunset next time!
If you’re looking for an adventure in the sky, I would most definitely only recommend flying with Elite! Click HERE to review various tour options and pricing. Happy flying (and doing new things!), my friends!
