In Los Angeles, there’s no excuse for saying, “I’m bored” whether you’re a party for one, a table for two, or a group of twenty there’s always something going on. This is one of the many reasons I love LA, not to mention that 95% of the time you are guaranteed to have beautiful sunny weather (with the month of June as the exception). When in California, you are always just a “short” drive away from a beach, mountain or forest. It’s true what they say, if you wanted to, you really could go skiing and surfing in the same day.

Although it can be expensive to live here, when it comes to finding entertainment it is what you make of it. You have so many options, you could try a new hike that will entertain you all day for next to nothing (maybe the cost of parking) OR you could pay top dollar to see one of the best concerts in the world, front row with backstage passes at one of the most famous venues, the Hollywood Bowl.

Thank you for all the suggestions so far!  The list is getting longer but keep them coming!  Send your ideas to!
