Los Angeles is home to iconic attractions such as the Hollywood sign and Rodeo Drive, but it’s also home to an equal amount of memorable, off the beaten path things to do. Here are 10 such suggestions that are sure to make for a fun outing this fall!

Los Angeles Skyline

1. Museum of Dream Space

If you’re looking for the perfect place to take some memorable, out-of-this-world photos this fall, look no further than the Museum of Dream Space! This interactive museum features countless stunning exhibits and light displays that are not only mesmerizing to experience but also make amazing backgrounds for photos.

2. The Last Bookstore

The Last Bookstore is the state’s largest used and new bookstore. Sitting in a former bank, a visit here truly feels like visiting a library from a fantasy novel – you’ll wind through endless rows of books, local art occasionally adorning walls, and high ceilings looming above you. Even if you aren’t much of a reader, this can still be a fun stop if only to check it out and say you’ve been.

3. Delusion

If you’re looking to add some spooky fun to your trip this fall, consider buying tickets to Delusion. Part haunted house, part immersive theatre experience, Delusion is sure to make for a memorable time. It sets itself apart from traditional haunted houses by offering an intricate, interactive plot that guests become a part of by working to solve a mystery and “rescue” characters.

4. Clifton’s Republic

Clifton’s Republic is the perfect place to enjoy a cocktail and also has an interesting past. The lounge was formerly one of the oldest surviving cafeteria-style eateries in Los Angeles. While it closed in 2018, it has since reopened as Clifton’s Republic and still features much of the zany, forest-themed decor that the cafeteria had.
