On Sunday, September 30th, CicLAvia is partnering with the LA Phil and Community Arts Resources (CARS) and clearing the roadways between Walt Disney Concert Hall and Hollywood, transforming them into an auto-free zone where you can walk, run, skate, scoot, bike, and wander however you like! Six hubs along the route will feature art, food trucks, screen-printing, kid-friendly fun, and dancing, as well as live music from LA’s best musicians. Think of it as an eight-mile free space saved just for you – do with it what you will!

There are more than 400 National Parks in the U.S. and visiting them may become more difficult as entry passes become more expensive. As of August 27, 2017, the cost of the National Parks Lifetime Senior Pass (available to seniors 62 and over) will be increased from the current rate of $10.00 to $80.00.
The LIFETIME PASS for seniors allows entry to more than 2,000 sites managed by five federal agencies, including the 400 National Parks in the US. The pass comes in the form of a vehicle hang tag.
Seniors can take advantage of the current low price before the rate goes up at the end of August by obtaining passes through the National Park website, application by mail, or by buying the pass at a National Park location. (If a pass is purchased via website or mail there will be an additional $10.00 processing fee.) Read more »
