Experience "Winter" in LA!

Average temperature low and high: 68° - 49°
People come to Los Angeles for the weather but stay for the myriad of things to do, even in January. From parades and ice-skating to holiday-themed theater productions and enchanting botanical gardens, it's no wonder why "La La Land" is one of the top vacation spots for beating the winter blues. Popular outdoor activities include theme parks, scenic hiking spots, Hollywood's Walk of Fame, the Griffith Observatory, and skiing in Big Bear Lake. If temperatures dip too low, there are always plenty of shopping centers to meander through and cozy restaurants for diverse eats. There's always something going on in LA, so check back for the next big event.
