The LEVEL Low Down: Holiday Activities in Los Angeles

December 15, 2017



While it may still feel like summer in Los Angeles, the city is lighting up with festive activities. All within a short distance of LEVEL Furnished Living, we’re sharing some of our favorite ways to celebrate the holidays this season.


Holiday Ice Skating



Just a few minutes’ walk from LEVEL are two magical places you can ice skate this winter. The L.A. Kings Holiday Ice rink returns to L.A. Live, as does the Pershing Square Holiday Ice Rink. Skate around dazzling light displays and Christmas trees in the midst of DTLA skyscrapers. Forget that we’re in the middle of L.A., it’s a winter wonderland at these ice rinks!

Where & When: L.A. Live, Open Daily Until December 21st
Where & When: Pershing Square, Open Daily Until January 15


Enchanted: Forest of Light



During the holidays, visit the Descanso Gardens for a unique and interactive light walk. With 10 illuminated installations around the botanical gardens, Enchanted is one of L.A.’s most stunning light displays.

Where: 1418 Descanso Drive, La Cañada Flintridge
When: Open Daily until January 7th (Closed December 24 & 25)


Snow Los Angeles



Snow in Los Angeles? Yes, you read that right! Over the holiday season, Snow L.A. brings a tubing park to Elysian Park. The pop-up features 10,000 square feet of synthetic snow, tubing lanes, and decorative trees with icicles, snowcaps, and lights. Just ten minutes from LEVEL, hop on a tube and experience winter in the heart of the city.

Where: 835 Academy Road, Los Angeles
When: December 15 – 17, 2017


LA Zoo Lights



During L.A. Zoo Lights, experience the zoo bigger, brighter, and merrier than ever before. From the classic Christmas tree to a desert flora laced with lights and a disco ball-filled forest, the zoo has quickly become an L.A. holiday staple. While most animals will be sleeping, you’ll be able to see real reindeer each night, and sit with Santa on select nights.

Where: 5333 Zoo Drive, Los Angeles
When: Open Daily from 6:00pm – 10:00pm until January 7th (Closed December 24 & 25)
