The trendiest place right now on instagram has to be the Malibu Pier. Which I didn't quite realize, but that's okay. I, too, was smitten by the pink hues and organic restaurants!
If you’re planning a trip to LA, definitely stop by Malibu pier on your way to Santa Monica. You have to pay for parking, but it’s so cute, and totally worth it especially if you’ll be eating at the restaurant. Also go to the Getty Villa. AMAAAAZING.
