Things To Do When It Rains in Los Angeles

Glitterati Tours and concierges throughout the city hear this phrase rarely, but it’s, “we need things to do when it rains in Los Angeles.”  It’s rare, because until just recently, we were going on our 6th year of drought conditions.  Our beautiful Santa Monica and San Garbriel Mountain Ranges, were locked in a brownish color for years.

This shouldn’t stop Angelenos and tourists from enjoying our fantastic city.  In fact, Glitterati Tours of Los Angeles actually gets busier during a rainy day, for most guests would rather be in a warm car rather than outdoors at a soaking wet amusement park.  Visitors can also enjoy our many galleries and museums, great restaurants, The Griffith Park Observatory (views probably won’t
