Staying Cool in DTLA

八月 22, 2016

Los Angeles is famous for its beautiful year-round weather. And as the temperatures rise in the summer months, it offers the perfect opportunity for both visitors and Angelenos alike to get outside and enjoy the city. With Labor Day right around the corner, there’s no better time to get out and enjoy the remaining days of summer. Read on for the best places in DTLA to soak up the sun.


The Pool At L Club


Whether you’re going for a dip in the pool or enjoying the southern California sun, our rooftop pool is as cool as it is gets. Recline in a cabana and catch some rays during the day, or stay around until nightfall to watch the sun set over downtown LA.

Where better to experience the endless summer than the beach? With the recent opening of the Metro Expo Line extension, you can go metro and travel from downtown LA to Santa Monica in 45 minutes.  One of the most classic stretches of sand, Santa Monica Beach offers plenty of space to stretch the legs, play a game of volleyball or go for a bike ride. Bring the sunscreen, a beach towel and let the sun, sand and surf do the rest.

Address: 380 Santa Monica Pier
