We took Uber there. They have a designated area for ride shares to drop off and pickup. Made it very easy.

There's a lot more uphill walking than I'd remembered at the Ford - but not as much as at the Bowl!

The Ford Amphitheater is a great intimate venue with general seating. There isn't a bad seat in the house, but if you are particular about where you sit you should arrive early.

I wore shorts and tennis shoes. I took a jacket but never used it. A beautiful night in the Hollywood hills. .

Dining is flexible. The food there is pricey. I usually pack food, but eating at your seat (seats, no benches) can be a little awkward. There are tables scattered about and concrete you can sit on, as well, but get there a little early for that.

Parking is stacked, $5. Give yourself some time. There's a small lot in front of the box office, and another one a little further away, but not too bad. Some parts are a little hilly and the walk right in front of the box office gets very steep.

Arrive early if you want to score a table. Pack a small cooler with wine, beer, soft drinks and light fare, you will save yourself a ton of money.

This is my favorite outdoor venue in LA. Scenic and intimate. It's the perfect place to enjoy a film or performance.
