Families can celebrate the Fourth at the Hollywood Bowl’s annual party. This year’s spectacular features three-time Grammy-winning a cappella group Pentatonix, the Hollywood Bowl Orchestra conducted by Thomas Wilkins, patriotic music and thrilling fireworks.
There are numerous options for getting to the Bowl:
Parking at the Bowl is limited and can be pricey: ($18 - $50). Parking is stacked, meaning you have to wait until the cars blocking your way leave before you can exit.
Park and Ride: You park your car in one of 14 lots, (chances are there's one near you), then ride a shuttle to the Bowl. $7 roundtrip when purchased in advance, $12 when purchased at the lot, (bring exact change). If you don't have advance tickets, you'll want to arrive at least 20 minutes early.
Bowl Shuttle: If you prefer, you can drive yourself to a lot this close to the Bowl, then take a shuttle from there. Two lots are on Ventura, another is at the LA Zoo. Parking is free; shuttle is $6 roundtrip. You can also park at Hollywood & Highland, (their parking rates apply) and either take the $5 shuttle or even walk. (It's a little bit of a trek!)
Or you could leave the car home and take the Metro.
