Jamie's Ideal Echo Park Weekend

 

Shot in and around Creative Director Jamie’s vibrant Echo Park neighborhood in Los Angeles. 

 
“What I love about Echo Park is the walkability… Weekends for me are about not driving and fully relaxing. I love being local”
 
"Echo park girls get good jeans. You can definitely find some good vintage jeans in this hood”
 
 
 “I love love the unexpected Geronimo balloon installations. They are pure magic.”
 
 
"Echo Park has a trove of little houses built of walk stairs. Walk stairs are the secret passageways hiding all over Echo Park."
 
 
 Echo park is a perfect blend of creatives and LA culture.
 
 My most magical echo park moments include:
 
1. When the pink trumpet trees bloom around Echo Park.
     
    2. Soundbaths at YOGALA yoga studio.
     
     
    3. Spring walks through Elysian Park, especially after a rainy season. 
      
     
    4. Feeding the ducks while riding paddle boats on echo park lake. It seems cheesy but it’s a little magical and never crowded. My 4 year old loves it.
