It wouldn't be summer in Los Angeles without a trip (or 2 or 3) to the Hollywood Bowl. Nestled against the backdrop of the sprawling Hollywood Hills and infamous white city sign, the nearly 18,000-seat amphitheater is the perfect locale to listen to the likes of Tchaikovsky’s classical compositions, view the annual July 4th fireworks spectacular, participate in the beloved Grease sing-a-long and see legendary acts like Radiohead, Stevie Wonder and Hall & Oates. And no outing to the Bowl would be complete without enjoying a picnic under the balmy California sun. Thankfully, there are a surplus of eateries around Los Angeles offering pre-made and custom options for those Bowl bound.
