Recently, we conquered the stairs of Silver Lake. If you haven’t heard of Silver Lake, it is considered one of LA’s “hipster” neighborhoods. You can find a lot of trendy eateries and shops. Among the quirkiness of Silver Lake, you can find some hidden staircases and walls painted with beautiful artwork. We have always seen pictures of these hidden gems; however, we finally had the courage to go search for them!
We followed Hilary’s directions (www.hilarystyle.me) on how to find the stairs and it was an adventure indeed! Not gonna lie, we did get lost at one point and were a bit burnt out halfway through, but it was all worth it in the end! If you’re thinking about finding these hidden staircases, be prepared for lots of walking and very steep staircases!
Afterwards, we rewarded ourselves with a Sunshine Latte from Alfred Coffee! This awesome pick-me-up had turmeric, ginger, lemongrass, and peppercorn. Alfred Coffee is one of LA’s hip coffee shops. Everything about this place from the cute floral walls and neon signs to the sleeve covers for their cups screams trendy. It is a definite go-to place if you’re ever in the Silver Lake area.
All in all, finding the hidden staircases of Silver Lake was a very rewarding workout. We got to discover parts of Silver Lake that we never knew about and truly admired the beauty of the neighborhood.
