People joke about the weather in Los Angeles perpetually being 70-degrees and sunny, and while the city does see some rainy days and legitimate UGG Boot-worthy temperatures, the climate is temperate for most of the year—which means L.A. is always an ideal location to visit.

Weather aside, I recommend people visit L.A. in the summer because there is no shortage of unique experiences to be had. From outdoor festivals, to pool parties and music everywhere, it's the best time of year to visit.

The Hollywood Bowl heats up with its summer music season that swings into full gear in late June. The Bowl is the summer home to the Los Angeles Philharmonic which plays their classical series every Tuesday and Thursday night. It's the perfect time to pack a picnic, a bottle of wine or two and hear world-class music under the stars. You can also pack a picnic for Cinespia's movie-screening series at Hollywood Forever Cemetery. Get there early on most Saturdays and Sundays throughout the summer to see cult classic and cinema favorites. As the summer progresses, temperatures normally climb, which improves your changes of having a warm day at one of L.A. iconic beaches as well.
