Things to do in 48 hours in Los Angeles

Often people come to Los Angeles for only a layover of about 48 hours. As Los Angeles is a huge city it can get overwhelming on what to do during those 48 hours. But don’t worry, if you stick with Bikes and Hikes LA we are going to help you to make the best out of your two days by helping you with things to do in 48 hours in Los Angeles.

Day 1 – Beat the Jetlag

Many people who arrive in Los Angeles are jetlagged, whether it is just a small time difference of 3 hours, 9 hours or 12 hours. Jetlag is exhausting and is the ultimate killer to your layover. The best cures for jetlag however are the sun and exercise. Guess what – we can offer you both. On you first day hop on one of our bike tours or rent a bike to enjoy that sun and get some exercise. Our LA in a Day Bike Adventure is the perfect activity to get exercise, sun and see all the gems of Los Angeles! This 32-mile bike tour will take you through 8 different cities including Beverly Hills and the beach cities Santa Monica and Venice. On this tour you get it all!

Day 2 – Enjoy Los Angeles

On your second day you can enjoy your morning with a nice brunch and then hop on a bike rental and make your way to the beach. From our store you can take Santa Monica Blvd. straight to Santa Monica Pier. There you can have a lazy beach day or explore the pier and 3rd Street Promenade. To give your day and stay the perfect ending, join our Hollywood Hills Sunset Hike. The hike is filled with fun stories and history about Los Angeles and the Hollywood Sign. The views over Los Angeles during sunset are truly stunning and memorable. The hike ends with a tour at the Griffith Observatory.
