How to Find Cheap Things to Do in Los Angeles
This post is sponsored by the fine folks at CheapOAir.com
Growing up in San Diego and living most of my adult life in the Bay Area, hating on Los Angeles was always a bit of hobby. “LA Sucks” pretty much covered all we needed to know about it. That’s all changed in recent years though since LA keeps managing to get cooler and cooler. There’s so much rad art and nightlife going on, and the city is so big, that you can pretty much find something to fall in love with no matter who you are. That said, you have to know where to look.
And that’s often the problem. I talk to travelers all the time who hate visiting Los Angeles. If you don’t know people there it can be really hard to find pretty much anything. It’s not like San Francisco or New York where you can just walk down the street and stumble into something magnificent. In LA you gotta drive everywhere, which means you need to have a destination in mind first.
Luckily if you do know where to go, LA can be as inexpensive as it is fun. Just spending a Saturday at Venice Beach costs you nothing, and between the skateboarders, the roller-skaters, the body builders, the street performers, the street artists, and all the other beautiful weirdos, it’s some of the best people watching you can do anywhere in the world.
That’s why it’s exciting that CheapOAir has launched their new “Things To Do” web series. Hosted by “The CheapOair Travel Guy” Beau Rials, the series highlights all the best free and cheap things to do in a different city each month. The first episode helps folks plan the perfect Los Angeles adventure. Whether it’s strolling down the Walk of Fame, or gorging on some tacos, “Things To Do” has a little something for everyone, especially us broke-asses.
