Fall in Los Angeles is an elusive thing. There's no nip to the air—au contraire, some of the warmest (and wild-fiery) days fall in these months—and any dramatic color changes take place in fashion rather than on trees. Mostly, we know it as that period of time in LA after (most of) the tourists leave and just before palm trees all over the city get the Christmas light treatment. Even if you're still enjoying LA's best beaches come October (and why would we ever complain about that?), you'll recognize the signs: the impulse to jack up your reading list, to buy sweaters you won't wear for weeks, to throw on a scarf over your sundress, to order seasonal squash dishes. You may even start craving pie.
This guide will help you celebrate the best of fall in Los Angeles: must-see art exhibitions, where to find grown-up versions of the desserts you coveted in the cafeteria, how to adapt fall's biggest trends for 80-degree weather, and where to rekindle that back-to-school learning spirit.
