Downtown L.A. at night

Summer is here and opportunities abound.  Time to take your sweetheart on a date.  Mine is blogging at Red Curtain Designs  I thought I’d come up with some free to moderately inexpensive dates in Los Angeles.  Here a top ten list for you.

10 Cheap Summer Dates in Los Angeles

  1. Hiking– It’s free and a great workout.
  2. Hit the beach– Go swim, read a book, take a picnic, or you could really go local and take the ole guitar and start a bonfire.  Don’t forget the blanket!
  3. The Getty and Getty Villa- Great Museum and gardens.  You’ll have to pay for parking ($15) if you go during the day.  Also, pack a lunch  and leave it in coat room because the cafe is a bit overpriced.
  4. Go build a house or serve someone in need with your significant other.  It’s a date that will help our city.
  5. Watch the Summer Olympics starting in July! (this is a guy date).  Add hot wings for extra points.
  6. Dodgertown – Hit up the cheap seats and grab your sunscreen! $8.00 cheap seats. Take the bus and walk to stadium. Parking is $$$!
  7. The Hollywood Bowl– For as little as $7 bucks + the shuttle ride + your wine and cheese as the sun sets in Hollywood= mucho Romantic points.
  8. Go people watching in Hollywood, Santa Monica or Venice Beach and offer to take pictures for tourists.  Make it a contest!
  9. Go to Olvera Steet and have some yummy authentic Mexican food and bargain for trinkets.
  10. You can find a Farmer’s Market almost any day of the week.  Just roll through and try everyone’s samples and split some fruit with your sweetheart.
Do you have any good date spots?
