Lonely Planet review
Built by Works Progress Administration (WPA) artisans during the Depression in the 1930s, this naturally beautiful outdoor stone amphitheater has ocean views from the highest cheap seats. Kick back in the sunshine or under the stars for live rock, jazz and folk concerts in summer. Big-name acts like Jack Johnson, Sarah McLachlan and The National have all taken the stage here.
