Walking L.A.



Description:

Forget about hiking or even taking a steep uphill walk. That all is too much effort!

This list is about places where you can embark on a pleasant, civilized stroll and take in the local scene. The destinations include shopping areas, religious sites, parks, old mansions, and beaches. Get outta the car and experience L.A. by foot at these low-key places!

The walks below are more or less ordered from west to east.

For more walking excursions, check out the Los Angeles Garden Guide. Or if you are feeling more industrious there is also this Hiking Guide.
