Thanksgiving in LA!

Hey everyone!

Well as I'm sure you already saw on my FB and IG, we spent Thanksgiving in Hollywood! It was so much fun, and I'm glad I finally made it down there since I hadn't been before! 
We spent all of Thanksgiving day at Universal Studios and it was so much fun! It was pretty packed that day, but we got there right when it opened, and we had front of the line passes which were definitely worth it! My favorite part was Harry Potter world of course (duh!), but I also really liked the studio tour and the Waterworld show. Although the Harry Potter ride was awesome, it made me so sick! All the spinning....ugh.....I had to go lay down for a while after that and pop some anti-nausea pills. I'm glad I got to experience it though haha...and the food was amazing at the Three Broomsticks! We had the roasted chicken, potatoes, and corn on the cob platter, then sticky toffee pudding for dessert; and of course the Butterbeer was delicious! I had heard the frozen one was better than the regular so tried that one :) I didn't do the wand experience, but I checked out all the shops and got some sweet souvenirs :) I really liked the Jurassic Park ride and the Mummy ride as well; the Transformers ride was pretty cool too. I was actually a little disappointed with the Walking Dead attraction....anyone who knows me knows I am a die-hard fan, so I was expecting more; it was just a walk-through attraction, and the set up and zombies were cool, but it was very short and not very scary, plus instead of going through separately you go through with everyone else, so it takes away from the experience in my opinion :/ All in all, it was fun and it was nice to do something different for the holiday! 
Some other things we did in Hollywood was the walk of fame, Madame Tussaud's, Natural History Museum, and Santa Monica Pier/Venice beach. We also ate some amazing (unhealthy) food, including: Guisado's, Milk, Porto's Bakery, The Ivy, The Waffle, and Pink's hot dogs.
