4 Fascinating Walks to Take in Los Angeles

Los Angeles is a seductive city — sometimes maddening, but always fascinating. A cosmopolitan massive urban expansion crisscrossed by frenetic highways, Los Angeles has something for everyone, if you know how to discover its charms.

Stretched along the Pacific coast of southern California, the coastline stretches 122 km from Malibu to Long Beach. The City of Angels is a collection of small towns and suburbs which gathers the cultures of 140 countries and over 224 languages. East and west collide to form a perfect mix, a true celebration of ethnic diversity.

All this beauty, and still I heard plenty of people complaining about one certain aspect – Los Angeles is a city for cars and travelers who love long, scenic walks have no chance of enjoying pedestrian time in LA. Well, I couldn’t disagree more!

Los Angeles has actually offered me the occasion to walk along great places, to see diversity, nature, tall buildings, colorful sunsets and lively neon lights – outside and far away from the car.

Here are some of the walks I’ll definitely take again during my next visit in the city that stole my heart.
