The fun doesn't stop at the beach! After a long hot day in the sun & sand, your hotel bed is already calling your slather on some aloe vera and take a quick nap in your ocean view room, the night is still young! There is still plenty to do once those sunglasses are put away.

One great way to recover your body and sun-kissed skin is to relax and watch a box office movie only 2 miles away from the sandy beaches. Check out Cinema showing times at the Beach Cities ArcLight movie theatre in El Segundo.

Want a more iconic experience? Head over to Old Town Music Hall, North of Manhattan beach on Richmond Street. This cute cultural landmark plays silent and sound films paired with a live organ every weekend and sometimes even ragtime and jazz concerts!

If your taste is a bit more modern, then check out shows at The Forum concert venue in Inglewood. This Summer also has big names like Ariana Grande, J-Lo, Queen, John Mayer, and the Backstreet Boys playing at The Forum and Staples Center (both venues being less than a 30 minute drive away from Manhattan Beach). Concert tickets can be as low as $30 so don't hesitate to check it out!

Are you a big sports fan? Well your in luck! The Staples Center has tons of basketball games playing all year long. The Dodgers Stadium, the largest stadium in the MLB, is also not too far from the beaches and a baseball game can be a fun way to wind down the day with the whole family! And it won't be a huge hole in your waller either. Belive it or not you can find baseball tickets for less than $10! Now that's a home run!

Are you and your kids looking for a break from the UV rays and sandy cheeks? First time beach goers- did you just learn your kids don't enjoy the salty waves and sand castles like you had expected? Don't worry about it! Not everyone is a beach lover. Fortunately there are museums, theme parks, and attractions all over Los Angeles. Disneyland and Universal Studios is certainly crowded and can be pricey so here are two unconventional and budget friendly places for the kids:

Art Zone Children's Studio is great for the creative hearts, kids have the opportunity to be themselves through arts & crafts. Located near Hermosa Beach at 1102 Aviation Blvd your kids can paint, sculpt, and create almost anything they desire with an abundance of art supplies.

This next place is great for active bodies with loads of energy. Moms and Dads, this is your time to sit down and take a rest while your kids enjoy jumping away at Sky Zone Trampoline Park. Feel free to also join them and show off your flips from your teenage gymnastic years. This indoor park is a children's haven filled with bouncy trampolines and games for all ages. Located at 1625 W 190th St, Gardena.

Manhattan Beach has tons of incredible activities but when the sun goes down the options can seem limited. This list has proved that fun still exists beyond the sand & sun! The possibilities in Los Angeles are endless. I hope you find yourself entertained this summer!
