The Hollywood Bowl, which is celebrating its 100th anniversary this year, is one of the most iconic places in Los Angeles to experience a live performance.
It’s the summer home of the Los Angeles Philharmonic.
It’s where your friends packed a picnic dinner for the “Sound of Music” sing-along. The memories created there are so priceless that it’s worth figuring out the sometimes difficult commute — and parking situation.
There are on-site lots, but even the Hollywood Bowl’s reps encourage alternate options.
“We really advise people to catch our Park & Ride buses and shuttle service as a convenient option and avoid disappointment in case our parking lots sell out,” said Laura Connelly, general manager of the Hollywood Bowl.
For some, it might be easiest to get dropped off. There are easy dropoff and pickup locations for the shuttle or any drivers (Uber/Lyft, significant other, friend who owes you a favor) who aren’t staying for the show.
But here are the options if you prefer to take your own car.
