BEST HOLE IN THE HILLS Los Angeles 2010 

S. Mark Taper Amphitheater

If the John Anson Ford Amphitheatre is the nephew to the Hollywood Bowl, then TreePeople's S. Mark Taper Amphitheater is its toddler sister. It's a fancy endowment-sounding name for what is surely the cutest outdoor venue in town (sorry, Will S. Geer Amphitheater). Set among eucalyptus trees in Coldwater Canyon Park, the woodsy location feels a world away from anything citified. Every summer, TreePeople presents its "Once Upon a Canyon Night" performance series, an eclectic lineup of theater, comedy, film and music offerings. Everybody brings a picnic and wine, and people share their delectables with their neighbors. (Maybe keep the spray-cheese-in-a-can at home.) The vibe is super-friendly, like those small towns you've heard of. Even the parking lot is pretty charming. It must be the wood chips. 12601 Mulholland Drive, Beverly Hills. (818) 623-4877. --Libby Molyneaux
