Summertime Rolls: Gearing Up For Fun in the Sun
The summer solstice (June 21st) brings the longest days of summer. Time to break out your sun-block and throw your favorite sneakers, bathing suit and beach towel in the back of your 1994 Toyota Corolla. When summertime comes to LA, the amount of things to do outside is at an all time high, along with everyone’s spirits. Beach volleyball, impromptu barbeques, and string bikinis are some of the few perks of being in sunny, southern California. Take advantage of all the outdoor upcoming events in Los Angeles while you can, including outdoor concerts and movie screenings.
Upcoming Events in Los Angeles Worth Noting
Some of my favorite summer month pastimes include catching a movie at The Hollywood Forever Cemetery, checking out one of the free concerts held every Thursday night on the Santa Monica Pier, and making it to Abbott Kinney for the annual street fair. I also love hitting Olvera Street for their outdoor market and amazing Mexican food (just off of Sunset Blvd and not far from Union Station). If you’re coming from outside of LA by train, Olvera Street can make the perfect day trip. With so many awesome activities going on in LA, it’s hard to find enough free time to do it all.
