Labor Day, the first Monday in September, is dedicated to the social and economic achievements of American workers. It is a yearly national tribute to the contributions workers have made to the strength, prosperity, and well-being of our country.

That being said, after months of laboring and contributing to the strength and prosperity of this country, its time for a vacation! They’re projecting 500,000 people will be headed to ATL for the holiday weekend so I’m taking my talents to the West Coast. Realistically, the numbers probably won’t be much better in LA (if not worse) but hey, its been a year since I’ve seen my Daddy so… LA it is!

Last year, I made him take me to Compton — I was still on a Straight Outta Compton movie high… lol. We did the Long Beach Pier, Hollywood Sign, the Walk of Fame, Manns Chinese Theater… All the tourist-y crap. Now I’m trying to put together my to do for this go-round. So far I’ve got the LA County Fair and Santa Monica Pier. Both probably still pretty tourist-y but hey, I’m a tourist. What can I say? I also think they’ll provide pretty dope photo opportunities so, cliche or not, I’m excited. Gonna drop some of my favorite pics from my last trip down below. Let me know what are some must-see/ must-do things I should add to my list!
