It doesn’t rain much in Los Angeles, but when it does… ☔
People in other cities might call us “babies” when it comes to complaining about the weather, but can you blame us?
Though many of us talk about loving when it rains, the majority of those comments are usually made from the coziest spot on the couch, in pajamas, with a warm cup of cocoa in hand. We get it, it’s nice to look at – but casually dodging flooding due to the lack of storm drains isn’t exactly an Angelenos strong suit. That’s why we’ve created a list of what to do on a rainy day in LA – stay dry Los Angeles!
1. Curl Up In A Cozy Bookstore
Take advantage of this (moderately) chill time in Los Angeles by picking up a book and diving into a world other than your own. Places like The Last Bookstore and Vroman’s Bookstore are fan favorites, but be adventurous by trying someplace different like Skylight books or Children’s Book World, if you have little ones tagging along.
2. Explore A Museum
You can stick with something more traditional like checking out the Natural History Museum or stopping by Griffith Park – but if you’re looking for something that spice up your social media presence, try stopping by one of the many pop-ups in town! Nowadays, there are more interactive museums than we can keep track of but a few of our favorites would have to be the Museum of Illusions and the Museum Of Selfies.
3. Take A Cooking Class
At times, trying a new recipe can seem more like a chore than a hobby. And you don’t want to find yourself running back and forth from the store to your home when you find out that you need yet another unheard of ingredient – especially in the rain! Make things easy on yourself by attending a class where you’ll learn how to whip up sushi or homemade pasta.
4. Treat Your Body
Ditch stressing about wild LA drivers in the rain but taking a day to relax and ‘treat yo’self.’ Feel refreshed, rejuvenated, and reinvigorated by detoxifying your skin while sweating it out or with in-home hydration and vitamin drips!
5. Have Dinner And A Movie
What’s better than getting comfortable in a Lazyboy chair and having anything you want with a push of a button? Yeah, we’re having a hard time trying to think of something too. Sit back and relax (literally) at one of the few dine-in theaters in Los Angeles. From iPic Theaters, Cinepolis, and the Marina Del Rey AMC – choose to spend your rainy day on a family outing or an adults-only trip to the 21-plus theaters (there’s a private bar with booze!)
