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!
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.
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.
5. The CatCafe Lounge
Here’s a great option for animal lovers! The CatCafe Lounge offers guests the chance to not only enjoy a cup of coffee but also spend time with some adorable cats. Even better, the lounge’s cats are adoptable.
6. Los Angeles Haunted Hay Ride
Here’s another option for those looking for something to get them in the Halloween spirit this fall. Griffith Park offers visitors a haunted hayride, which features all manner of frightening scares, in the weeks leading up to Halloween. More information on dates and tickets is available online.
7. Tanaka Farms
If you’re looking to enjoy some classic fall fun, consider stopping by Tanaka Farms. This interactive farm features a pumpkin patch, market, and farm animals and is perfect for visitors of all ages!
8. Street Food Cinema
Enjoy some delicious street food alongside an outdoor movie this fall at Street Food Cinema. A wide selection of movies are scheduled, ranging from classics like Grease to newer hits like Twilight. During the month of October, several spooky films are also playing, such as Beetlejuice.
9. Snow-Line Orchards
If you’re willing to head a bit outside of the city to Oak Glen, Snow-Line Orchards and Winery will make it more than worth your time. Visitors can look forward to wine tastings, delicious apple cider donuts, and u-pick raspberries.
10. Descanso Gardens
Descanso Gardens is beautiful to visit any time of the year, but an autumn visit offers a couple of extra reasons to add it to your itinerary. To start with, it’s a great place to see some autumn leaf displays, rarer in the Los Angeles area. Carved at Descanso Gardens is another reason to visit – it’s a display of gorgeous, intricately carved pumpkins.
