When you visit a new city, you want to make the most out of it. Experience every aspect of the new surroundings. But how can you do that in a place you have never been before? Usually without knowing anybody in the neighborhood? Sometimes the standard methods aren’t enough, and we advise maybe taking a hike, or using a bike to explore Los Angeles!
Our first advice is to rent a bike. It is incredible how much your perspective of your environment changes while paddling through the streets, enjoying a nice workout. Traffic becomes secondary, nature and little details about houses are the new focus. Stop whenever you want, decide your own pace, and don’t be rushed or restricted by traffic.
If you want to make your experience even better, our recommendation is to tour the city with a native! They know the areas like no other, have amazing insider knowledge and can open the door for an authentic experience.
Our LA in a Day bike adventure combines those two aspects and many more! Start your ride in West Hollywood, where rock & roll meets fashion, art merges with lifestyle and everyone is free to be different. Then go up to the Sunset Strip before you’re off to Beverly Hills and Bel-Air, home of the rich and famous. You will see over 30 celebrity houses in areas tour busses are banned. A walking tour of Greystone Mansion is one of the highlights in the hills. This amazing estate with its rich and interesting history is an iconic location for motion picture and television shoots. Greystone has been featured in dozens of films, including The Big Lebowski, Spider-Man, The Social Network, and is even known as Rory’s school, Chilton, in Gilmore Girls.
Continue your amazing ride through neighborhoods such as Westwood and Brentwood on your way to Santa Monica Beach. Bike over the Pier before having a nice break and enjoying a delicious lunch in Venice Beach
On the way back to West Hollywood, you will see the Venice Canals in all its beauty, ride through Marina del Ray and Culver City, over Robertson Boulevard and so much more!
The tour gives you everything you could ask for including stunning views, plenty of photo opportunities and will leave you with the best and most authentic impression of the city!
