Los Angeles is an adventure traveler's and outdoor enthusiast's paradise for those who also enjoy the excitement of an urban setting. The City of Angels is one of the most famous metropolitan areas, attracting millions of visitors each year who are eager to explore the world's entertainment capital. While most tourists head to Hollywood Boulevard, Union Station, or the Beverly Hills- we here at 10adventures take a different approach. The year-round sunshine and Mediterranean climate of Los Angeles engender the perfect conditions for outdoor exploration.

Land characterized by miles of pristine beaches and rugged coastline, the Transverse Ranges, cultivated farmlands, chaparral regions, inland valleys, and coastal plains—the adventure possibilities are plentiful. While it is no secret that hiking is our chosen way to explore the wilderness, there are countless other ways to get outside to indulge in the beauty and charm of La La Land.

Surf at Venice Breakwater, take a paddleboard or kayak into the Pacific, mountain bike through the low mountains, take a horseback riding tour, wander through urban parks or hike up to the Hollywood Sign. There is no shortage of exhilarating activities! Located in LA's backyard, you will find the Angeles National Forest, encompassing over 650,000 acres of land and a wealth of recreational pursuits. Just an hour's drive from the Greater Los Angeles Area, this swathe of preserved wilderness beckons the visitation of adventurers like ourselves.

While we argue that backcountry exploration and outdoor pursuits are the best way to experience LA, a trip to this cultural mecca wouldn't be complete without a drink on a rooftop patio, a museum trip, or a tour of the Paramount Pictures Studios. Boasting breathtaking scenery, endless adventure pursuits, and tourist attractions, a trip to LA is full of wonderment and a must-add to the bucket list.
