Great events in Los Angeles, California
Reviews > North America > United States > Los Angeles > Great events in Los Angeles
I came out to LA again for PhoCusWright which was a 4 day dynamite event again. I think it's essential for anyone in online travel, so you got to be there. They always schedule PhoCusWright for the week before Thanksgiving, so I usually try to stay with my friends in the US for that.
We don't celebrate Thanksgiving of course, but it's probably my favorite holiday. Just meet the family, talk, eat, drink, and simply cherish all the good things in life. Since I was in college, my roomate George would invite me over to his family and we'd celebrate in San Diego or on Balboa Island. This year was on Balboa Island again, which I guess is great for the kids as they can walk by the ocean, and of course get all excited about the over-decorated houses. If you look at the pictures that I will post later on, you know what I mean. It's somehow funny, but then it's also awesome because they keep that tradition going and it makes the kids very happy.
Like every year I got to feel like I am part of the family, that alone has got to be worth the trip:)
The following day we just hung out on the island drinking and eating again. Some good times, I truly wished that we had a Thanksgiving in Europe, but instead they made Halloween popular in the past few years, I guess that's more marketable after all.
