With ample outdoor activities, beautiful beaches, and gaggles of galleries, it’s hard for culture hounds not to be entertained when searching for what to do in Los Angeles.

A few diversions make for a classic trip: riding the Marvin Braude Bike Trial, also known as The Strand, strolling Abbott Kinney First Fridays, or making a trip to LACMA, which boasts a world-class collection. Otherwise, don’t miss the newly opened Broad Museum, one of the top things to do in Los Angeles. For the local L.A. experience, check out a Barnsdall Wine Tasting in Silver Lake, consider the culinary sampling on offer at Grand Central Market, or grab a picnic and take in a free Cinespia movie screening.
