Los Angeles, you either love the city or you hate it. There’s no in between. And when you think about a trip there, you think movie stars, studio tours and theme parks, but that’s not even close to what you want to be doing there. In fact, you’ve got it all wrong if that’s all that you’re planning on experiencing. Because the locals aren’t going to tell you this out of fear that you’ll start taking over their secret spots, but the things that are best to be enjoyed in LA, are the things that get you outdoors (and occasionally indoors) and away from the crowds. The things that get you moving and pushing your limits. There’s a reason why everyone in the City of Angels has a California glow about them.
Whether it’s testing your fear of heights by sliding down a glass side 70 stories up or kayaking down the LA River (yes, you can do that!), LA’s adventures make it one of the coolest cities in the world for travelers in-the-know, which technically, you now are.
