PARKS & NATURE - CULVER CITY

baldwin hills overlook

Baldwin Hills Scenic Overlook

It's 282 steep, concrete stairs to the top of this Westside lookout, with a windy, paved walk down. On weekends and weekdays after work, the wide stairs are jam-packed with young locals, couples and groups of friends working out together. Having a lazy day? Take a shortcut and drive up to the top of the hill and park in the many empty spaces ($6). Once you reach the summit, sit at the long park bench and take in the 360-degree city views.

Kenneth Hahn State Recreational Area

Griffith may get all of the attention, but Kenneth Hahn is impressive in both size and topography for a park in the middle of the Westside. On top of the usual list of amenities, the Culver City-adjacent park contains a lotus pond, fishing lake and sand volleyball court. But the urban oasis really establishes itself with more than seven miles of walking and hiking trails through the Baldwin Hills, with views of almost every corner of the LA Basin—from the South Bay and the Pacific Ocean to Downtown and the San Gabriel Mountains.

Santa-Monica-Pier

Monica The landmark Santa Monica Pier has been drawing crowds for a century. It originally opened on September 9, 1909, but had no amenties.

The end of the pier is a popular location for anglers to cast their hook.

Santa-Monica-Beach-lrg

Santa Monica Beach State Park

Stretched out along 3.5 miles of the Pacific Coast Highway, the beach offers so much: parks, picnic areas, playgrounds, restrooms, bike rentals and a bike path, volleyball, wooden pathways for warm days and beachgoers with disabilities. And of course, the water itself offers the joys of swimming, wading, surfing, stand-up paddle boarding, or whatever your pleasure is, all under the watchful eye of manned lifeguard stations.

PARKS & NATURE - LONG BEACH

Bluff Park

Bluff Park

Beautiful place to get a workout. The beach is very clean and there is not tons of people all over. It is very common to see the locals running/walking, playing with their dogs, or out with their families. They've got a pedestrian walk along the entire length of the beach, and people rollerblade/bike or jog along the path.

Aqualink - Alamitos Bay Landing

Whether you choose the AquaBus or the AquaLink, you’ll get a new perspective on the coastline. The downtown skyline glitters, the marinas and waterfront homes sparkle. The massive scale of the Queen Mary is impressive when sailing up to it on a small boat.
