Fun Things to Do in Los Angeles this Summer

Fun Things to Do in Los Angeles this Summer

Summer is here and that means it is time to have a blast. The cool thing about the Los Angeles area is that there are TONS of fun things to do. All you really have to do is narrow down exactly what you want to do and find a place to stay.  We have both of those covered for you!

You can’t be in Los Angeles for any duration of time and not go to a major league baseball game. The Los Angeles Dodgers have plenty of home games this summer, so there is no reason for you to miss this fun time. Experiencing the game, food, and fun is definitely something you will not want to miss while in town. In fact, a Dodgers game is one of the hottest spots to be this summer.

If you love all things Hollywood, a walking tour of Hollywood Boulevard is a requirement.  Start with a stop at the Chinese Theater and compare your hands to the legends’.  While on your tour, don’t forget to snap a selfie with the Hollywood sign in the background.  The best place to grab a picture is the famed Hollywood and Highland shopping complex.  Spend the day exploring the various museums, shopping venues, restaurants, theaters, clubs, and so much more.  You might even plan two days of your vacation to explore this area of town.

Those interested in art will want to include a visit to The Getty.  Explore the museums, architecture, and gardens at two locations in the area.  Be sure to look for special events and exhibits during your visit on their event calendar.  You might want to head to The Getty Center just for the views overlooking Los Angeles as they are spectacular.

Take a day trip to Griffith Park while you are in town.  With over 4,210 acres of both natural terrain and landscaped parkland, Griffith Park is the largest municipal park with urban wilderness area in the United States.  The park offers numerous family attractions, an assortment of educational and cultural institutions, miles of hiking and horseback riding trails, and an ideal environment for enjoyable recreation activities.

When all of that site seeing has you ready to cool off, try an ice cream cone from Wanderlust Creamery in Tarzana. Their artisanal ice creams feature unexpected flavor combinations such as Sticky Rice & Mango or  Pretzel & Rugbraou (caramleized rye crumbs.)  Head out to 18511 Ventura Blvd to check this creamery out for yourself.

Now that you know some of the best kept secrets of fun things to do in Los Angeles for the summer. The big question is: where do you stay while in town?  We have you covered!  We have several short term leases in the Los Angeles area.  Pick the one you love below and head to Los Angeles for a few weeks or even an entire month.
