One of the best ways to experience Los Angeles is enjoying the free things to do in L.A., such as taking a scenic drive to explore the city or the coast. Many of L.A.’s top cultural attractions, such as the Getty Center and Getty Villa, California Science Center, and California African American Museum, don’t charge admission. Urban art and various artwalks throughout the city are always free. L.A.’s myriad neighborhoods are ideal for exploring on foot, from historic Leimert Park in the Crenshaw District to the NoHo Arts District in the Valley. Put the wallet away and go window shopping at the Original Farmers Market, the Fashion District or Rodeo Drive. And of course, fresh air and sunshine are free, so head to the hills for a hike, play with your canine companion in a dog park, or cool off with a dip in the ocean.
