The concept of fall and winter in L.A. might seem laughable compared to temperatures elsewhere in the country, but the season still changes, and it can still get a little chilly! When the colder seasons set in, there are a few tried-and-true activities to do in Los Angeles to help you enjoy autumn and winter in Los Angeles. Read on below to learn more about activities in Los Angeles!
Celebrate the Changing Seasons in Los Angeles
Apple picking is a fun way to enjoy the beginning of the fall season, with wonderful farms and orchards to visit in Oak Glen. From pressing your own apple cider at Willowbrook Apple Farm to making autumn crafts at Riley’s Stone Soup Farm & Heritage Orchard, you can make a day out of picking apples!
Another one of the best activities in Los Angeles in the fall is pumpkin picking. Visit pumpkin patches like Tapia Brothers Farm, which has an enormous corn maze, Mr. Bones Pumpkin Patch in Culver City, Forneris Farms in San Fernando Valley, and Underwood Family Farms in Venutra County for pumpkin picking with a side of live music, fall festivals, pony rides, and more.
Another great activity to do during fall is to watch a movie at Rooftop Cinema Club before it closes for the rainy season. Hosted on top of the Montalban in Hollywood and LEVEL in the downtown area, this open-air movie experience is one of our favorite activities in Los Angeles CA because it is much less stressful and much more well-stocked than other outdoor movie screenings in the city.
Fall also brings Oktoberfest to the city, from the free two-day Oktoberfest DTLA held in Pershing Square to the nearly two-month long Oktoberfest in Alpine Village. Venice’s gastropub Wurstkuche serves traditional Bavarian fare with a twist, while the Old World Oktoberfest in Huntington Beach couples a favored German tradition with very L.A. views of the ocean.
In winter, you’ll find a number of outdoor ice skating rinks and even snow-capped mountains within driving distance, such as Mount Baldy. Iconic destinations like Disneyland have very few visitors during the weekdays this time of year. And all around the city, you can warm up with bowls of hot ramen, hot toddies in a cocktail lounge by the fire, or coffee in cozy coffeehouses. Treat yourself to some dim sum for Chinese New Year!
