I don’t know what it is about LA that makes me feel at ease. I typically stay away from large cities. Something about being surrounded by high rise buildings makes me feel ill. Add to that a dense population and my anxiety shoots through the roof!
My husband and I recently had the opportunity to take a quick 3 night stay in Koreatown, Los Angeles. We’ve been here several times before, as a family, but this marked our first experience without the kiddos.
Koreatown is a neighborhood located in Central Los Angeles. There are plenty of things to do and places to eat. If you want to make the most out of your stay, here’s a list of our favorite things to do in Koreatown.
TOP 3 THINGS TO DO IN KOREATOWN, LOS ANGELES:
1. Book a hotel that’s in the heart of Koreatown
If you have the means to experience an overnight stay, do it! The Line Hotel is a fantastic option and offers lots of ammenities- free bike rentals for guests, beautiful outdoor pool, Openaire restaurant, Alfred coffee shop and a full-service bar.
2. Wi Spa
Wi Spa is a Korean type spa and it’s an experience you won’t forget! It’s open 24/7 and is a wonderful place to lounge and relax. Upon check in, you’re given a watch which acts as a key for your locker. It’s also how you pay for your meal and drinks if you visit the restaurant. Yes, there’s a restaurant! And I can understand why because people stay here for hours at a time! There’s a rooftop terrace, various saunas, sleep rooms, a kid’s area, and they also offer specialty services like body scrubs. After having experienced Wi Spa, I completely get why so many stay for hours!
3. Eat at Dan Sung Sa
We’ve been to Koreatown several times, but this was our first time visiting Dan Sung Sa. I regret not knowing about this place earlier. If there’s one restaurant you must try while in Koreatown, it’s gotta be Dan Sung Sa!
It’s located in the middle of a tiny strip mall. If you didn’t know what you were looking for, you just might walk past its small narrow door. The place is dimly lit (hence the dark photos) and has a great atmosphere. The menu is displayed on wooden tablets and dishes go from $1.99 to $18.99. It’s like tapas but Korean style. Our favorite dish was the pork belly salad. So good! We can’t wait to visit again! Psst…they’re open until 2am.

In partnership with Osmo. It can sometimes be a struggle limiting screen time for kids. I don’t know about you, but if I were to give my kids unrestricted access to their tablets, they’d be on it all day. And I don’t blame them....

I’ll be honest. My husband and I don’t have many date nights. With 2 young kids and my husband working long hours, it’s usually easier to just stay at home. This week we were lucky enough to get invited to the dress rehearsal of...
