So long, Lima! New Directions takes Los Angeles for Nationals in Glee Season 5, Episode 11: "City of Angels." So of course that means three things: sightseeing, sunglasses, and, uh... people dressing up like hot dogs? 


New Directions definitely has its work cut out this year at Nationals, as the group is taking on Throat Explosion and its leader with a devil-may-care attitude, Jean-Baptiste (Skylar Astin). We even have a bad feeling that the New Ds might lose this year. But that doesn't mean there isn't time to hit up some tourist attractions, right?

Nationals takes place in sunny L.A. this year, and it looks like the gang will be exploring the city, which apparently means hitting up the Walk of Fame on Hollywood Blvd., not to mention iconic West Hollywood hot dog institution, Pink's. 

The show's cast and crew has posted pics to Instagram of themselves in and around L.A. On January 16, Kevin McHale (Artie) posted a photo (above) of the New Directions members all wearing sunglasses while seeing the sights. "GLEE field trip!" Kevin captions it.

Meanwhile, Glee costumer Roric Ruegsegger posted several shots (seen below). One is of the New Directions kids getting silly with a hot dog cut-out board, and one is of a certain beloved celebrity's star.



We can't wait for the episode to air, so we can see L.A. through the eyes of our favorite Ohioans!
