As a college student, my roommates and I are always looking for fun things to do in between the homework, classes, and stress. Unfortunately for us, we're in college. Meaning we constantly live off of ramen and energy drinks.
For the longest time, we sat around in our apartment weekend after weekend doing absolutely nothing. That is until we realized there's a whole other world right outside of our windows, and it's actually affordable!
Here is a complete list of inexpensive things to do around LA. Whether you're a local or a tourist, there's a ton of different things to enjoy.
