Taking in the views at OUE Skyspace in DTLA


One of my favorite things about living in Los Angeles, is seeing the Downtown LA skyline from my bedroom window. I love to see it all lit up at night. I love to look up while driving through downtown on the 110 freeway. I love wandering the streets of Downtown on foot and seeing all of the remnants of the old architecture and history of my city. 


When I heard about the opening of OUE SkySpace  last year with the see through slide on the top of the US Bank building, I thought... Oh hell no! Haha! Well, you see I have a fear of heights, but I really don't want to impose my own fears on my daughters and I want them to experience everything that they can. So, up we went! 


My 8 year old could not wait to try the slide! She is my little roller-coaster-riding-thrill-seeker. The look on her face when she is experiencing the adrenaline rush is probably my favorite part of being a parent so far. If only her eyes lit up the same way when she is asked to do chores. 


My little one was very upset when we first got up to where the slide was. She really wanted to go down the slide, but was too scared, which made her upset. We made a deal that we would go back when she is a little older and she can try again. Although the OUE Skyslide is an exhilarating part of SkySpace there is much more to it. The views are breathtaking all the way around, we were able to see our part of town and see the sun set  I would love to go again at night to see the entire city lit up.  


This is a definite must, you will transform your view of the city you already love. OUE SkySpace is California's tallest open air observation deck. Every day, as we look out at the beautiful DTLA skyline, my daughter reminds me of how cool it was that she was on the outside of that "super tall building." Oh and before you can walk out on the observation deck, your first stop will give you a history lesson of everything that makes Los Angeles great.
