3. Hotel Erwin 1697 Pacific Ave, Venice, CA 90291

While a jaunt over to Venice usually means sticking within the confines of trendy restaurant and shopping streets like Rose Avenue or the now over-gentrified Abbot Kinney, you and yours can get a dose of the good old crazy, kooky part of Venice with a stay at this beachside boutique hotel. The eats, like the bacon caramel corn at the onsite restaurant Barlo Kitchen + Cocktails are an indulgence in and of itself, but they'll be even more perfect for your short walk to Muscle Beach.

4. The Hollywood Bowl 2301 N Highland Ave, Los Angeles, CA 90068

An iconic amphitheater and music venue in the Hollywood Hills, the Hollywood Bowl hosts hundreds of nationally renowned musical acts every year, as well as annual fireworks extravaganzas. Unlike most theaters, the Bowl lets guests bring their own food and drink (including wine and beer), but it might be in your best interests to opt for one of the several on-site options since James Beard award winner Suzanne Goin and her business partner, Caroline Styne (of A.O.C. and the Larder) head up the catering services.
