Duh. You knew we were going to say this. But seriously. Our favorite day of the YEAR to hike in LA is the 4th of July, because from the vantage point of our favorite Hollywood Hills Hike, you’ll get a sweeping view of fireworks alllllll across Los Angeles! Our city is massive- it’s over 500 square miles of a melting pot of neighborhoods, cities, and people, and with the latest news about California hopefully reaching herd immunity by Independence Day this year…we’ve all got a lot to celebrate.
