Our beautiful city of Los Angeles has been buzzing all summer. The beaches have been packed; the music acts have been coming non-stop, and we even gained an NFL team. With summer winding down, we here at Simpson Buick GMC, one of the premier GMC dealers near San Diego, aren’t ready for the fun to stop.
It seems like every year around this time things start slowing down, people start to get into their school or work routines, and the up-tempo, lively lifestyle that we all enjoy throughout the summer starts to fade. This fall that doesn’t need to be the case. Check out our complete guide to an unforgettable fall below and keep the good times rolling in the city of angels.
The “prodigal sons” of the NFL, the Rams have made their long awaited return home to Los Angeles from the beautiful city of St. Louis, and we could not be more pumped about it. Not only has the team traded for the number 1 pick in the draft, which they turned into star quarterback and California native Jared Goff, but they also have been starring in HBO’s extremely popular TV series “Hard Knocks”.
The NFL’s return means that the fall has become an exciting time to be alive in Los Angeles. Break out the grill and coolers and make your way down to Los Angeles Memorial Coliseum for some good old-fashioned family fun. Encourage your St. Louis friends to continue supporting the team and let’s make this season a historic one.
Football isn’t the only major event coming to LA this fall. Hip-Hop Phenom Drake will be playing six shows in the greater Los Angeles area between September 7th and 29th. Joining him will be one of the hottest rappers of the year, Future, for what is sure to be an unbelievable series of performances. Make your way out to the Staples Center or The Forum in Inglewood for a once-in-a-lifetime musical experience.
The L.A. Times annual event “The Taste” celebrates local cuisine from the Los Angeles area over the entire Labor Day Weekend. What better way to kick off fall than with a taste of all of the best food from the culturally diverse Los Angeles community? Enjoy food, drink and live entertainment in a blissful environment at Paramount Pictures Studios. Visit the LA Times website for additional details and tickets.
America’s favorite pastime is in full heat this fall, as your hometown Los Angeles Dodgers and Angels fight for playoff contention. September is one of the most exciting months in baseball as teams begin to clinch spots for the October playoffs. Stars like Mike Trout, Adrian Gonzales, and Clayton Kershaw become legends under the playoff lights, so bring your friends or family to the stadium in your 2016 Buick Enclave and root for your team all the way to the World Series!
For those that aren’t ready for summer to be over, no fall event is better suited to your needs than Sundown Music Festival. This gigantic beach party features international music sensations such as Awolnation, Erick Morillo, and New Politics for your listening pleasure. Add in zip lines, waterslides, food and drink and you have yourself an epic fall event that you won’t soon forget. Check out the festival’s Facebook page for more info, or visit theirofficial website for tickets!

While you’re there, go on a whale-watching cruise or take the catamaran over to Catalina. You’ll have a whale of a time and cool off in the process.
Shop Till You Drop – The OC has a fantastic assortment of enclosed shopping malls to suit every fancy. So why not go on a shopping spree in air-conditioned comfort at one of our many area malls like South Coast Plaza, Brea Mall, or the Westminster Mall, to mention a few?
Go To A Movie – Orange County has movie theaters galore. The Krikorian Buena Park Metroplex 18, La Mirada 7 and plenty of others nearby offer an entertaining respite from the relentless OC sun.
Go Out To Dinner – The OC has, well, a bajillion or so excellent restaurants. So why not beat the heat by dining in a nice cool restaurant and enjoy some nice cool beverages while you’re at it? (Remember: if those beverages are alcoholic, please drink and drive responsibly.)
