This city we call home is known for its year round mild climate, beaches and summer fun. But if you are like some of us here at Aspire LA, you’ll enjoy the cooler months just as much if not more. We’ve put together a list of winter activities to inspire you.
1. Watch A Winter Sunset
Folks don’t necessarily want to spend a lot of money discovering a way to pass the time. Therefore, if you are on a budget and love to look at beautiful scenery, visit a place such as the Griffith Observatory, Terranea Bluff Top Park, or Hermosa Beach Pier to watch the sunset. Of course, a person can do this from any state, but there is just something about the view from the coastline. It is a moment that can be enjoyed alone or with others. If this sounds like your cup of tea, don’t forget to bring a camera along to capture the scene.
2. Christmas and Holiday Drive- Thru Events and Experiences
2020 is the year that Christmas really needs saving, and thanks to Holiday drive-thru events and light shows, we will! Buckle up, because there are a plenty of drive-thru experiences that are happening in and near Los Angeles! Make sure to double check the entrance fees.

Hiking is great all year around but for those of us that don’t love the heat, hiking can be especially attractive during the cooler winter months. If you go the day after the rain, the skies will be clearer, the views better and the trails cleaner! Read more about great hikes here.
4. Drive up to the snow
Southern California is famous for its beaches ànd its abundance in ski resorts. Even if you don’t want to go all out and get on the slopes, a drive up the Angeles Crest highway for some winter fun is worth it! There are a few stops along the way that are perfect for sledding, making this a great family outing. Another great location for easy snow fun is Lake Arrowhead, home to many lake view cabins, search Lake Arrowhead on AirBnB for a quick getaway.
