This gorgeous outdoor amphitheatre has been hosting concerts since the LA Philharmonic first played here in 1922. Nestled in an aesthetically blessed fold in the Hollywood Hills, the 18,000-seat venue can bring out the romantic in the terminally cynical. It's the summer home of the LA Phil, but it's hosted everyone from the Beatles to Big Bird, and today mixes classical concerts with all manner of rock and pop.

Seeing a show at the Hollywood Bowl is an essential LA bucket list activity. The location is just perfect, and it feels like you've stepped into a magical place; the walkways a twinkly and tree-lined, escalators zip patrons up and down the hill, there are picnic areas everywhere. It's so enchanting that you'd never know you're around the corner from one of the city's busiest intersections. As for the amphitheater itself, it's an enchanting place to see a show. Some summers are better than others, but there's always something exciting to see in the season schedule.
The Hollywood Bowl always offers amazing shows and it's a must do in the Summer time in LA! This year they have a lot of new food vendors so I am super excited to order the picnic baskets the next time I go to the bowl. To avoid parking I would suggest taking an uber/lyft/taxi, it makes it much easier!
I always enjoy concerts here because its not too big so every seat has a good view. To avoid parking hassle, reserve a parking spot in advance here to guarantee your parking spot in advance. http://www.parkme.com/los-angeles-parking/hollywood-bowl
This is great, but for anyone checking this out there's TONS more shows on the Bowl website: Dudamel Conducts..., Pink Martini, Blue Man Group, etc. See you @ the Bowl!
