The Ultimate Summer Bucket List for Los Angeles

A summer vacation in Los Angeles is all about blue skies, expansive beaches, and open-air concerts. Whether this is your idea of a perfect break or you’re looking to explore the city’s classic draws including world-famous museums and Hollywood, this blog is for you. We’ve rounded up the best things to do in LA this summer, so you don’t miss out on anything!

Spend Time on the Beach

Get your beachwear out and ready for a day at the beach for a classic summertime experience. The birthplace of beach volleyball, downtown Manhattan Beach offers an unmatched hometown charm. The beach and the area around it are a one-stop destination for surfing, boutique shopping, and ocean-front dining.

With nearly eight million visitors every year, Santa Monica Beach is another great pick for a day at the beach. It offers miles of scenic parks and picnic areas and is home to the original Muscle Beach.

Take in the City Views

For the best view of the city during day or night, hike on the trails of Mount Hollywood to the Griffith Park Observatory. On a clear day, you can enjoy views of Santa Catalina Island while at night, the view of the city’s iconic neon lights creates a picture-worthy carpet of colors. After the hike, indulge in an authentic Japanese dining experience at our five-star restaurant in California, offering a sushi bar, happy hours and more!

Soak in Culture & Art

Exploring art at a world-renowned museum is a great way to unwind during your summer break in LA. Visit the Museum of Contemporary Art for its permanent collection of abstract expressionists and Rauschenberg sculptures. The Japanese Pavilion at the Los Angeles County Museum of Art also offers a relaxing setting with its traditional watercolor paintings and free jazz performances.

Catch an Outdoor Concert

Pick a picnic dinner and enjoy an outdoor performance on a cool summer evening in LA. Located only minutes away from our hotel near Torrance CA, Hollywood Bowl’s amphitheater is the perfect stop for a night of jazz under the stars. If you are inclined towards rock music, Griffith Park’s Greek Theater is lit up by rock band performances throughout the summer season.  

Experience the Hollywood Charm

From the iconic sign to the hills, Hollywood is synonymous with the entertainment industry. Explore the legendary 1.5-mile Sunset Strip full of celebrity-studded music venues, comedy clubs and cocktail bars for an exciting summer adventure. You can even match footsteps with Hollywood stars on the Walk of Fame or spot celebs in Tinseltown.

Explore Classic Attractions at Disneyland Park

The first-ever theme park designed and constructed under the supervision of Walt Disney, Disneyland Park is a firm favorite amongst locals and visitors alike. Grab the chance to enjoy classic Disney attractions like Space Mountain and the Sleeping Beauty Castle.

Discover its nine popular lands including the recently added Star Wars Galaxy’s Edge. And if you’re looking for a relaxing experience to unwind after a long day, indulge in soothing massages and body treatments at our Torrance spa, conveniently located near Disneyland.

Summer is arguably the best time to visit LA and it’s easy to see why. Tick off these iconic experiences from your list and make the most of Southern California’s pleasant weather and leisurely pace for a great summer vacation.
