Weekend Field Trip :: L.A. Eats and Mansions

It’s fun to get out of your area and explore the city. That’s just what we did this weekend and it was a blast. We went on a little field trip to some L.A. landmarks. Our first stop was at the old 1948 Brentwood Country Mart. It’s much smaller than I imagined, but fun for foodies and kids. My daughter enjoyed the quaint toy store and small rides out in the courtyard.  I as always enjoyed the food. Out in the courtyard are several food stands offering burgers, tacos and chicken. It was fun to visit and see all the cute shops lining the small paved roads. The mart quickly filled up after lunch and got very crowded, so we headed to stop number two The Greystone Mansion.


The Greystone Mansion is a Beverly Hills Gem. It’s owned by the city and open to the public to enjoy. It’s history has scandal and it’s been used in many films. Oil tycoon Edward Doheny gave this large estate to his son as a wedding gift. The family moved into the home in 1929 and it has a very interesting murder suicide story. That is what drew me in. We had a blast running around the grounds and seeing where the trails would lead us next. The beautiful Tudor style home transported me to another country and I almost forgot where I was. No detail was missed. Lead pain windows, ornate sconces, brick chimney’s and even the gutters were beautiful. Sweeping city views remind you that your in L.A. Here are a few snaps from our visit. This place is a L.A. must see!

Xo, Annie
