Can you believe summer is here? Let’s get started on some great things to do in LA this June! From the ‘Saved By The Bell’ Pop Up Restaurant, to the LA Pride Parade to short week getaways, please find some of my top recommendations below!
Saved By The Bell Pop Up Restaurant
It’s time to set those calendars back about about 25 years, because here comes Saved By the Max, the neon-tinged pop-up restaurant aiming to be a near-complete recreation of Saved By the Bell’s own iconic restaurant. Organizers Zack Eastman, Steve Harris, and Derek Berry have nailed the show-approved look, from the retro diner seats to the Bayside High lockers and even Mr. Belding’s own office — now all that’s left is to eat. Location: 7100 Santa Monica Blvd, West Hollywood, CA

LA Pride Parade
One of the biggest pride events in the US, LA Pride attracts as many as a half of a million people during its two-day festival at West Hollywood Park, including its signature Sunday parade (June 9+10). The atmosphere is good-natured and raucous; local color is provided by divas, drag queens and DJs.

DTLA Donut Fest
Join us for a one-day edible exploration of LA’s favorite pastry at the first-ever DTLA Donut Festival at Union Station. The momentously mouthwatering event will showcase the donut in all its many guises: plain, glazed, and filled; traditional and new wave along with “donut-adjacent” treats including churros, apple fritters, and (of course) donut holes.

With a combination of quality wine, mission-style architecture, and a legion of spas and health resorts, Ojai has everything one could want from a small town retreat from city life. Take a hike. Read a book. Meditate. Ojai has long been the place Southern Californians go to relax.
An entire town devoted to the Danish heritage of its founders, Solvang can feel a bit like another country—or maybe Disneyland. The streets are lined with colorful Scandinavian-style buildings and replicas of notable monuments and sculptures found in Copenhagen. There’s also plenty of Danish food to be found, including the aebleskiver for which the town is famous.
There’s plenty to do in this pretty seaside town north of San Luis Obispo, including kayaking, biking, and eating (fish and chips, anyone?). Take a stroll through the kitschy shops and grab some saltwater taffy and a postcard. Of course, the main attraction is the striking—and very photogenic—576-foot rock that rises majestically from the bay.
