With just 10 days left before school resumes for Glendale Unified School District students, here’s some suggestions on how they can spend the last few precious days before they happily (?) go back to school.
Summer Beach Bus
This is a great, cheap way to get to the beach and away from the current heat wave. The bus runs through Sept. 3 on Tuesdays, Thursdays, Fridays, Saturdays and Labor Day. The stops are: Two Strike Park at 9:15 a.m., La Crescenta Library at 9:25 a.m., on the southeast corner of Montrose Avenue and Ocean View Boulevard at 9:35 a.m. and the northwest corner of Foothill and La Cañada boulevards at 9:45 a.m.
The bus travels from Crescenta Valley to the Santa Monica Beach dropping riders off at 10:45 a.m.
Enjoy a day at the beach and don’t forget to allow plenty of time to meet the bus for the return trip. The bus departs Santa Monica Beach at 3:30 p.m.
