Los Angeles has been uncharacteristically cold this winter season. It even snowed in Pasadena!! But now that spring has sprung, it’s time to get back outdoors and enjoy the warmer weather and sunshine! Here are a few things you can in LA to embrace the changing seasons.
California Wildflower Fields
This year has been the perfect storm for the superbloom in southern California. Timing is key with the superbloom, and the low desert is already seeing blooms right now (early March) and it’s predicted to last in the high desert until June. Don’t miss your chance to see them!

Descanso Gardens NightGarden
Stroll Descanso Gardens’ grounds as the sun starts to set during this inaugural after-hours series of workshops and performances. NightGarden kicks off in February with storytelling, shadow puppets and stargazing. As it starts to stay lighter later, the programming shifts with plant-related activities in March, spring blooms in April (floral attire encouraged) and a spin on a science class in May.
Located within Los Angeles, Griffith Park, the historic Greek Theatre stands as one of the nation’s most beloved and recognized outdoor entertainment venues. Visit www.lagreektheatre.com/events for a full list of upcoming shows and events. Opening night is April 13th!
