Summer is almost here thank g. LA summers are filled with concert and movie series, festivals, and parties, making it the perfect season for dating. Free outdoor events equals lots of prime star-gazing, so your summer romance potential is through the roof. With the launch of Align, this is the perfect time to find a match in your constellation and check out one of these date destinations!
Santa Monica Twilight Concert Series
If you're thinking about a beach date, this is definitely the way to roll. The Twilight Concert Series is some serious fun. A free concert on the beach with the stunning sunset and illuminate pier is a way into the heart of any sign (especially the social Gemini, aesthete Libra or water-bound Cancer). A Taurus may potentially not vibe with this because the seating options are not up to the Taurean standard of comfort, and if it's a first date, a Leo might be bummed at missed opportunities to glimmer and sparkle amongst the exciting music and DJ sets, but this is a super fun night anyone can enjoy. (WARNING: Alcohol is NOT *Legally* permitted , so if you need a glass of wine or bubbly, may be wise to bring an elegant thermos option)
Saturdays Off the 405 at the Getty
Another free concert series, but this one is at the stunning Getty, with all the beautiful views and architecture that the LA museum must-see has to offer WITH free music. Past performances from the Dum Dum Girls, Best Coast and Lord Huron definitely make this the place to bring a music-loving partner who will also appreciate the lush surroundings. Though parking is always a bit of a bitch at the Getty (15 dollars BOO), these events are the perfect excuse to catch a beautiful sunset and vibe in the beautiful gardens. Perfect for: Sagittarius, Gemini, Taurus.
Griffith Park Observatory
Obviously the perfect designation for any cosmo-lover and if you met your date on Align, then it's in the stars that you will enjoy this unparalleled view of Los Angeles. Even though this isn't exactly the ideal city for star-gazing, the landscape of dazzling city lights is basically a reflection of a glittering sky. Come early for a beautiful day hike and check out a show at the planetarium!
Free Shakespeare in Griffith Park
The shows at Griffith Park with the dynamic Independent Shakespeare Co are always amazing, and with Romeo and Juliet in the lineup this coming summer, a perfect astrological destination for you and your (star-crossed? hopefully not...) lover! Try to get there early for a prime picnic spot, though in our experience all the seating has a great view of the stage. Perfect for any sign, because who doesn't love a good show?
The Venice Canals
The Venice Canals are the perfect destination for some tranquil strolling and aesthetic pleasure, i.e. a great date spot to chill and get to know your Align match. Take in this rare aquatic wonder of Los Angeles and maybe go for that first hand-holding sesh? An Aries might get restless here but you can always hop over to the pier for some excitement or spontaneous couple tattoos...
