In Los Angeles, there is a plethora of fun holiday events to attend. Although Los Angeles may not have the white Christmas that you dream of, activities still abound. Take a look at some of LA’s greatest holiday events. 

Candy Cane Lane: 

Most of us have heard of Candy Cane Lane. The beautiful light displays of houses are always a beautiful sight. While it is difficult to find parking, coming to Candy Cane Lane is definitely worth it since there is no ticket cost at all!

Ice skating in LA: 

While LA may not have the winter wonderland that you imagine, there are still several ice skating rinks that will truly make LA feel more wintery. Put on your skates and glide around Pershing Square, ICE at Santa Monica, and LA Kings Holiday Ice to make your winter wonderland come true.

Attend an amusement park: 

Disneyland, Universal Studios, and Knotts Merry Farm are some fun and festive amusement parks to go to during the winter. During the holiday season, these amusement parks host fun holiday activities and are decorated for the season. 

Snow Day LA: 

LA is holding its first ever Snow Day just 5 minutes from Downtown LA. Snow, tubing, snow globe, skating, and an animated light path are some of the fun events there. Snow Day LA will continue until December 29 and tickets are selling fast! 

Boat Parades: 

This winter season, there are several boat parades in Los Angeles and the South Bay. The Newport Beach Boat Parade continues on until December 23.

Enchanted Forest of Lights: 

Take a walk through the Enchanted Forest of Lights at Descanso Gardens! This event has been going on since November and will continue until December 29th. While this drive is farther than the others, if you want to have a whimsical experience, then take the time to drive down to a fairytale land. 

Naples Island, Long Beach: 

Naples is a neighborhood in Long Beach made up of three islands in the Alamitos Bay. If you walk along the Naples Canal, you will see large, beautiful homes that are beautifully lit up. You can even cruise through the canal on a gondola and watch the lights without being stuck in a large crowd. 

If you can’t attend any of these activities or would rather stay in PV, relax and spend the holidays at the comfort of your own home. Pour some hot cocoa, listen to holiday music, and watch a movie with your friends and family!
