Heads up! We’re working hard to be accurate – but these are unusual times, so please always check before heading out.
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 L.A. 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 L.A.’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 a scarf on over your sundress, to order seasonal squash dishes. You may even start craving the best pie in the city. No matter, here are the best things to do each fall in L.A.—or, at least, things that’ll help make it feel like autumn is actually a thing here.
