Los Angeles provides a number of exciting activities and events to enjoy year round. Since the weather is always great, be sure to stop by one of these best summer beaches in Los Angeles for all day fun.
The Santa Monica beach and pier is one of the most iconic locations in all of Los Angeles. While the pier has fun activities to enjoy year round, one of the most popular events takes place during the summer. The Santa Monica Twilight concert series has been going on for several years and returns every summer for locals and visitors to enjoy. During the concert series, every Thursday night a FREE concert is presented featuring artists from various genres such as R&B, Latin, Indie Pop, Americana and more.
For all the surfers out there, be sure to stop by Malibu Surfrider beach. This popular spot is located conveniently between the Malibu Pier and the Malibu Lagoon. One of the reasons the beach is such an excellent location is that there is a long right hand break, which provides perfect waves for surfing. Even if you don’t want to surf yourself, it’s a fun place to visit to watch others catch some waves. You can also bring along a volleyball and stop by the sand volleyball court for a fun game! Stop by the Malibu Surfrider beach for a fun day in the sun.
If you want to experience a little taste of Europe in the heart of Venice, consider stopping by the Venice Canals. Over 100 years ago, a developer named Abbot Kinney had an idea to create a space that would be known as the “Venice of America” complete with canals and gondoliers straight from Italy. Today, while the Italian gondoliers are gone, the canals remain and it provides a beautiful place to walk around and enjoy a quiet space in the heart of the city. Walking tours of the area are also available.
