Cradled in the Hollywood Hills, this historic amphitheater opened in 1922 and has been the longtime summertime home of the L.A. Philharmonic and, since 1991, the resident Hollywood Bowl Orchestra. You know you've arrived when you've played the joint -- the Bowl has hosted performances by Duke Ellington, the Beatles, Billie Holiday, Jimi Hendrix, the Arcade Fire, Love, Igor Stravinsky, Aretha Franklin, Oasis, the Doors, Miles Davis, Bob Dylan, Fred Astaire, Pink Floyd, Louie Armstrong, the Rolling Stones, Vladimir Horowitz, Judy Garland, the Seeds, John Fogerty, Frank Zappa, Barbra Streisand, Little Richard, the Carpenters, the Who, Johnny Cash, Cheap Trick and Ella Fitzgerald, among many others. The Bowl's iconic band shell has evolved over the decades, growing bigger and better during a 2004 makeover. Fans are encouraged to picnic in the Bowl and surrounding areas, and food is also available from Patina. However, parking is a major drawback. There is a limited amount of parking at the Bowl, and much of it is stacked. It's easier to shuttle, take the bus or subway, or walk over from other parts of Hollywood than to brave the infamous Highland Avenue traffic meltdowns that often occur at Bowl concerts, especially during rush hour. Ticket prices range from $1 for bench seats in the back to hundreds of dollars for box seats up front. No smoking. All ages.

    Smooth steel curves cut the skyline at unexpected angles and sharp creases, which is partly why no other building in L.A. proclaims "21st century" like Walt Disney Concert Hall.
