Los Angeles may have great weather throughout the year, but summer is arguably the best season in Los Angeles. Sure, we do Halloween parties and Christmas lights pretty good, but we do summer even better with longer days, cooler nights and an endless list of things to do in the city. So get excited for the season with our comprehensive roundup of fun events and things to do in the summer in Los Angeles, including the best beaches, sunniest spots for day drinking, seasonal things to do and more. Whether across the globe or emerging bands from our great city of Angels, this year’s free Los Angeles summer concerts season is looking spectacular.
