If you don't have much money to spend this handy little book is an excellent investment. There are quite a lot of things listed there that are suitable for children as well. You can have a lovely day out with the whole family at the cost of just a bus ticket.
Highly recommendable for unemployed, students, young families and everyone else who needs to hold their cents together.
The items in this book are listed from January to December. The dates may be subject to change, so it is advisable to check the website for current information.
Some of the Fun Free Adventures Include:
A LA Harbor Tour that leaves every 20-60 minutes. Take a tour in an open-air tour boat.
Central Avenue Jazz Festival - dine on ethnic cuisine while you listen to music
Summer Concerts in the Park - evenings of music in July and August
There is also information for every interest. If you love gardening, there are many beautiful gardens to visit. You might even enjoy volunteering to help decorate a float for the Tournament of Roses Parade. I saw one of the floats up close and they are pretty amazing. I wondered who had all that time on their hands, and now we know. You can sign up to volunteer through a special website.
Other Interesting Places to Visit:
Frederick's of Hollywood Lingerie Museum
Fall Festival Farmer's Market
Holiday Movie Shorts at Santa Monica Place
This book is filled with free festivals, museums, historic landmarks, botanical gardens, tours, summer fun, concerts, art events, films and holiday events. Each entry features Thomas Guide map coordinates to make finding your free fun much easier.
~The Rebecca Review
The book begins with monthly Annual Events so you can plan what to do whenever you visit. You'll learn how to attend the January 1 Tournament of Roses Parade for free, complete with parking instructions. On the first two Saturdays in February, your family can enjoy the Pan African Film and Arts Festival Children's Festival at Magic Johnson Theatres. And, in July, there's the Courtyard Kid's Festival at the Japanese American National Museum.
There's another section with Holiday Events, which kicks off with the Chinese New Year's Festival in Chinatown as the first of several New Year's Celebrations. Other holidays which have dedicated sections include Earth Day, Cinco de Mayo, Fourth of July, Halloween and Winter Holidays.
There is also an "Extra Events" section, which features free Concerts, Films, Gardening and more.
The last part of "Free L.A." is entitled "Venues" and includes sections of Free Museums, Museums with Free Days, Botanical Gardens, Historic Places and Nature Centers & Preserves.
Finally, you'll find an index listing all the free goodies, both alphabetically and by location. The book is approximately 3 ½ by 8 inches and would easily fit into a tote bag or a purse so you can take it with you as you tour the "City of Angels".
