Spend the Day Exploring Attractions at Griffith Park
If you’re looking for something fun to do this weekend, head to Griffith Park. Stretching over 4,000 acres, it’s one of the country’s largest municipal parks with urban wilderness areas. Every year, it draws thousands of visitors who come to enjoy a wide range of activities, from hiking trails to exploring fascinating museums. Best of all, Griffith is just a short drive from Decron properties like Ascent. Read on to explore three of our favorite attractions at this legendary park near our West Hollywood apartments:
Autry Museum of the American West
When you step into the Autry Museum, you’ll find a fascinating place dedicated to sharing the stories of the American West. Visitors rave about the world-class galleries featuring thousands of artifacts. In fact, this popular museum has even been voted “favorite museum” by readers of the Los Angeles Daily News since 2014. Autry also offers fun public events. You can attend lectures, listen to live music, watch silent films, and more.
Harding Golf Course
A Griffith Park fixture since 1923, Harding has a long history of offering some of the city’s best golf. It’s home to a driving range and golf shop, as well as practice putting greens. This celebrated course has even won the Golf Digest “Best Places to Play” award. So whenever you get the urge to golf, head out to Harding.
The Greek Theatre, one of the country’s most famous outdoor entertainment venues, opened in 1929. Over the years, it has welcomed hundreds of musical guests, from Frank Sinatra to Elton John. The theater seats nearly 6,000 spectators and is known for its great acoustics and fabulous sightlines. In addition to music, the Greek Theatre also offers a selection of food. You can pre-order meals and drinks for pickup or in-seat delivery. Popular options include fish tacos, salmon filet, and smoked hanger steak.
