Unlike some of the other stairways in the city, the Culver City Stairs are very long, so by the time you get to the top, you’ve earned the views of the ocean and the Santa Monica Mountains. There’s no shade here, so I like coming at sunset when it’s cooler and the views are at their best.

Highly recommend for first timers to LA. On a clear day you can see the entire Westside from here. Drive to the top and park for a fee $10 or park on the street for free and take the stairs for a great workout. Views include the Hollywood sign, downtown, the ocean, Sony picture studios. Enjoy!

Walk or jog to this State park for a relatively easy hike or take the stairs straight up for more exercise. There is also access to the top by car if you want to skip the workout and go for the scenery. It is beautiful up there - you can see from the beach to the mountains on a clear day.
