Day 1

Three days of romance begin in Griffith Park with a hike and city views from the iconic Griffith Observatory. Enjoy an alfresco lunch at the famous pizzeria from Eat Pray Love, then shop for music and movies for chilling at home. Stop by one of LA's best wine stores for romantic gift boxes like "Breakfast in Bed," "Toy Box for Two," and "Love On the Run." After sipping sake and sharing small plates, enjoy an outdoor concert at the landmark Greek Theatre, and a nightcap at Big Bar.

Day 2

Like every great love affair, today's itinerary has its ups and downs. Start the day at Grand Central Market, as seen in La La Land. Head to nearby Historic Filipinotown for artisan confections. Then it's back to Downtown LA to re-enact an iconic scene from 500 Days of Summer, and an afternoon of rejuvenation at The Ritz-Carlton. Tonight, you'll dine nearly 1,000 feet above DTLA, experience a classical music concert, and go underground for cocktails.

Day 3

Your romantic LA trip ends with a day on the coast and a candlelight dinner in the forest. Today it's the best of the Beach Cities: a morning couples massage in Rancho Palos Verdes; kayaking in Marina del Rey; strolling a hidden gem in Venice Beach; and an unforgettable sunset in Malibu. The Inn of the Seventh Ray is one of LA's most popular wedding venues - dinner could also be a scouting mission. Love is in the air!
