Top 5 Activities to Experience in LA
The City of Angels may be known as a top destination for foodies and those interested in the arts, but there’s so much more hidden in Los Angeles. Each neighborhood offers a thriving culture, and around every corner is an adventure just waiting to happen. When you want to explore LA but don’t want to do the typical tourist attractions, branch out and try one of these top five bucket list adventures! From biking around the city to enjoying a good horror movie, to racing experiences and rock climbing, there’s something for everyone!
When you want to get your heart pumping and take in a unique view of Los Angeles, there’s no better way than a guided rock climbing or canyoneering adventure. Whether you’re flying solo, with a friend, or a group, chose from five destinations for your adventure. Each day trip package includes all necessary equipment, rentals, and even stacks. No experience is needed for either adventure, as professional guides make sure anyone will have a fulfilling time. Are you ready to check out the secrets hidden in the Los Angeles canyons?
If rock climbing seems too physically demanding, try an electric bike tour around the city! Ride with a friend or a group on an electric Hollywood Tequila Sunset electric bike tour, complete with a provided helmet and handlebar bag. The tour lasts roughly an hour and a half and gives riders the chance to see the Hollywood Hills, get up close to the Hollywood Sign, the Hollywood Reservoir, and more. Take in the most iconic views in the city as the sun starts to set and take stunning photos to share with your friends and family or post to social media.
Thrill seekers living in and visiting Los Angeles will love the opportunity to drive a stock car at the Auto Club Speedway. Choose from four racing experiences: a three-lap taste, six-lap qualifier, 10-lap shootout, or a two-hour experience with a pre-drive orientation and instruction. All supplied cars have previously raced in one of the top two stock car racing series, and features an in-car radio with a dedicated professional spotter. Without a pace car, you get to set your own pace, and passing is encouraged. Check out the largest racing experience with over 200,000 participants in the last four years!
For an experience unlike any other, check out the Oue Skyspace and Skyslide. For breathtaking, panoramic views of Los Angeles, there is no better vantage point than the view from 1,000 feet in the sky. Open daily, general admission includes 30 minutes of timed entry with access to all four levels of the building, including two outdoor observation terraces. Opt for the Skyslide combo to get access to what’s offered with general admission, but also a Skyslide ride! The slide is 45 feet long, and is the perfect way to see the city of Los Angeles with a thrilling twist.
If the Skyslide wasn’t a thrilling enough option, there’s another way to get your blood pumping and adrenaline rushing. Great Horror Movie Night takes place almost every Friday night from March through May, showing films like Leprechaun, John Carpenter’s The Thing, and the original Halloween. Shown in the abandoned Old Griffith Park Zoo, the Great Horror Movie Night is the ideal date night for horror movie fans or a group outing with friends. Tickets can be purchased individually, in pairs, or in four-packs. If you want to have the scare of your life and watch classic, bone-chilling horror films, this is one experience not to miss!
