Culver City Stairs
This quick one-mile walk/hike leads to a scenic overlook over our beautiful city! You can park on the neighboring streets for free or find hill parking for $2.00/hour using the meters.
Maria Del Ray
Marina and Beach
This beach spot is not as busy as your typical beaches in the area. You can sit and watch the boats go out the channel or walk down the beach. There is typically a decent amount of metered parking by the beach.
One of the best things about LA? All of the hiking options!
The app "Alltrails" provides details on length, difficulty, parking, and weather. It also gives reviews from individuals who have recently done the hike. This app is free to sign-up to use.
