    Ooh L.A. L.A.

    1. Tuning into KCRW every morning on your commute and discovering your new favorite band.

    2. Speaking of music, there's nothing better than popping into Amoeba for a free show, or finding something cool and cheap on vinyl.

    3. Getting an ice cold coffee most days of the year to start your morning โ€” and how refreshing it feels in hot weather.

    4. And, of course, delighting in trying out a new high-quality cup of joe, because L.A. is now huge on coffee culture.

    5. Basking in that gorgeous pre-sunset light we know as the "golden hour."

    6. And maybe Instagramming a sunset or two... because when you see something so beautiful, you just have to share.

    7. Running into a friend at a stoplight or on the road.

    8. And Instagramming cool or hilarious license plates you see.
