General Travel
“Most people come to LA and experience the city from their rental car which makes me sad, the LA I know and love cannot be accessed from a car. Bikes & Hikes offers a tour called "LA in a Day," the tour spans 32 miles in 6 hours and covers nearly all of the Westside. ”

“I do a four-mile loop walk/hike that takes me up and down hills, past beautiful homes, through this park, high on a cliff overlooking the Pacific, then past our local peacocks as I wind my way home. Love it.”

“To get to the Los Liones trailhead: Los Liones Drive is the second left off Sunset Blvd from PCH, just 1/3 of a mile from the beach. Park on the right side of Los Liones Drive, and enter the trail at the end of the cul-de-sac. Trailhead address: 580 Los Liones Drive, Pacific Palisades, CA 90277 Trailhead coordinates: 34.047263, "The 1.3-mile long Los Liones Trail climbs a lush slope up to a junction near the bottom of East Topanga Fire Road facilitating a serious 7.8-mile round trip hike with 1,300 feet of elevation gain. These arduous treks are rewarded by sweeping ocean and canyon views." There are benches at Inspiration Point where you can rest and enjoy the view of the coastline.”

“In front of the Hollywood Sign, it’s 3.5 mile out and back, and starts at Sunset Ranch, where they do horseback rides; that’s the place to park. The majority of the beginning is pretty difficult because you’re going up. Definitely pace yourself and just enjoy the view—you’ll see Downtown LA when you get to the top. Go with a group of people, it’s more entertaining. I’ve done it with college friends as well as my three nephews, they're all between the age of 9 and 12, they were dying.”
