Travel Plans: Museum of Ice Cream LA

The Museum Of Ice Cream LA is definitely on the top of my list of places to travel here in the US. The creative behind MOIC is Laguna Beach, CA native Maryellis Bunn, who first did a Pop-Up of the idea in New York in 2016 at the age of 25 with the help of her business partner Manish Vora of Light Box . As of now, there is one located in Miami, San Francisco, and the flagship location LA (all with different installations). If you haven’t heard much about the Museum of Ice Cream, I'm appalled (insert rolled eye emoji here). Let me just say, it’s an ice cream lovers dream, an instagrammers heaven, and total nostalgia for any one who is obsessed with pink and color. There are 12 different rooms, each with quirky installations and a daily rotation of sweet treats from local ice cream shops along the way.

Tickets are about $38 per person, age 3 and over and they seem to always sell out within days of going up for purchase. You can't get tickets there, so it's best you keep updated through their newsletter when they open tickets up to the public.
