There's always so much going on at San Diego Comic-Con that it's often difficult to remember how much goes on outside the convention walls!  Some of the most interesting sights at this year's 2013 SDCC was quite literally outside.

Have a FREE Summer, LA!

One of our favorite things about Los Angeles summers is that there are so many free things to do!  It's a great way to head out with family and friends to experience some of Los Angeles' best offerings and discover gems throughout the greater LA area.

Free Summer Concerts and Performances

Grand Performances is one of our summer favorites, always offering not only an eclectic mix of outdoor entertainment, but a great venue for emerging voices and ideas.  This summer is no exception with guests like Las Cafeteras, Uncaberet, children-friendly Bob Baker Marionettes, Mucca Pazza,  Rufus and Friends with Black Light All Stars, Songs in the Key of L.A. with Ozomatli and Friends, Lux Boreal, and many more.

The Los Angeles County Department of Beaches and Harbors offer a number of free events including Marina del Rey Summer Concerts at Burton Chace Park featuring a wide-range of musical styles and talented artists like Taylor Dayne, Poncho Sanchez, and Rose Royce.  Make sure to also check out their listings for their Farmers' Market, Walking Club, Craft Classes, Yoga Classes, and more!
