Los Angeles County Arboretum and Botanic Garden: If your date is a nature lover, head over to the Arboretum. It’s a beautiful and peaceful place for a stroll, a picnic, and maybe a nap! There are peacocks roaming free and rare foliage as far as the eye can see. Make sure to bring your camera! You’ll definitely want to snap some photos to remember this date.
Fairfax Farmer’s Market: We’re HUGE fans of this historic LA landmark. The Farmer’s Market is a permanent partially outdoor smorgasbord of food and drink. Situated right next to the famed Grove shopping center, you’ll have celeb sightings aplenty! There is everything from Mexican, Chinese, Louisiana-style, and Spanish cuisine. Dig in!
Silverlake Wine – Do you feel like classin’ it up a little? If you want to impress your date but don’t want to break open your piggy bank, scoot over to Silverlake Wine. They have a superb wine tasting package that only around $20. They hand-pick wines and small plates of food especially for you!
Backstage Bar & Grill – If a pitcher of beer is more up your alley than a pairing of wine and cheese, this bar is just your style. In addition to the variety of brews on tap, Backstage Bar has something going on every single night of the week. There is trivia, karaoke, sports, and more. Be sure to hit up the photo booth in the back!
Angels Flight Railway – This uniquely LA piece of transit is just 50 cents to ride. Board one of the two cars and ride “The Shortest Railway in the World”! Take the short journey up the rails that connect Hill Street and California Plaza on one of the two funicular cars: Sinai and Olivet. This short date is one you surely won’t forget!
