Ah La La Land, land of the rich and home of the tanned. This is the California that tourists dream of, and with good reason. Unlike fall in SF, fall in LA is in fact, sunny and 75 pretty much all day erryday. Except when it gets hotter than that, the city turns into a wasteland of over heated yoga moms and actresses, so you best have your AC unit installed and on full blast here. So in an effort to help you understand fall in LA, I’ve broken down what fall is like in LA versus everywhere else, with handy gifs for visual assistance.
Fall outfits in LA:
LA locals are dedicated to their beach life, so don’t expect them to abandon the place come fall. They’ll still be out there, tanning and trying to spot shirtless Hollywood actors.
Fall outfits everywhere Else:
Put a coat on in LA in fall (or pretty much any time of the year) and prepare for lots of sweating. Any other city, the coat is a fall essential.
Fall Beverages in LA
LA citizens consume their coffee in one form: iced. Ok two if you include frappes, but you get the idea.
Fall Beverages Everywhere Else:
Any other city, a warm beverage serves to keep your hands and stomach warm and cozy.
Fall Activities in LA
Suns out guns/buns out is basically the LA motto.
Fall Activities Everywhere Else
We don’t even have enough trees to create leaf piles in LA, come on now.
Fall Food in LA
One does not simply go to LA and NOT consume ice cream.
Fall Food Everywhere Else
Everywhere else is busy making comfort food like soup, stew and chili.
Fall Sports in LA
You can have your football, LA will be busy surfing some gnarly waves brah.
Fall Sports Everywhere Else
Football is fine I guess, they’ve got hot dogs and beer there, right?
Fall Driving in LA:
LA traffic is notoriously bad, add in a car without AC, and you have hit sweat central.
Fall Driving Everywhere Else:
Apparently, this thing called rain occurs in other parts of the country. LA doesn’t know what rain is. If it ever rains in LA, believe you me, pandemonium occurs on all the highways.
So there you have it, a handy guide to how fall is done in LA. Which is basically a handy guide to why California is superior and we do in fact have seasons, they’re just cooler than everyone else’s. *Mic drop*
