The Hollywood bowl in Los Angeles is a great place to visit in the summer. The weather is gorgeous (though it usually is here), the sun sets later, and picnicking is the thing to do.
This summer the line up is fabulous and eclectic. From Death Cab for Cutie and Incubus to Liza Minelli, Poncho Sanchez and John Williams, all Los Angelinos will find a concert they'd enjoy. Starting tomorrow (through to the fourth), there will be a special US Birthday bash performance, complete with fireworks and special guest John Fogerty, the guitar and voice of Creedence Clearwater Revival.
Know Before you Go:
Bring a picnic (including wine)!! You can get food and drinks at the Hollywood bowl, but you will save tons of money if you bring your own.
Take the Shuttle! You can park at the Hollywood bowl for 14-30 dollars. But the shuttle costs $4 per person round trip (and you can buy those tix in advance on Ticketmaster when you get your concert tickets). Check out the shuttle schedule and pick up areas: HERE
If you sit in a box- it is super convienient to picnic WHILE you watch, but the acoustics are amazing at the Hollywood bowl, so even if you are sitting all the way in the back it will be a great show!
