The Bachelor’s Tim & Anna Share Their Top Tips For LA

Where to shop, eat, drink and unwind like a celebrity.

When part-time Bachelor stars/full-time love birds Tim Robards and Anna Heinrich aren’t hanging out at secret hillside retreats in the Yarra Valley or living their life as really, really ridiculously good-looking people (exhibit A and exhibit B), the power couple can often be found out and about exploring excellent corners of the world. One of their favourite spots is Los Angeles, the glamorous heart of California and the entry point for most Aussies to America. LA’s vastness can make exploring it a little daunting – there’s Disneyland, Hollywood, restaurants galore, canyons to hike and celebrities to spot – so where do you even start?

Well, if you’re looking to go all out on your next trip to California, let these two be your guide. Whether it’s a tasty restaurant, a cool rooftop view or an awesome day trip, Anna and Tim sure know their way around LA and they’ve shared a few hip spots in their favourite neighbourhoods. Let them be your eyes and ears as we follow this insanely photogenic couple across West Hollywood, Palm Springs and beyond. Read their suggestions below.
