Hiking in L.A.’s Griffith Park offers an unusual mix of cool sights: the iconic Hollywood sign, alternating patches of forest and desert terrain, wildlife such as coyotes and deer, occasional glimpses of celebrities walking their dogs, and several landmarks from famous movies and tv shows. And it’s the place to find some of the best views of Los Angeles, from the downtown skyline all the way to the Pacific Ocean.

The tour starts with a few minutes of basic bicycle education—you do need to know how to ride a bike in order to ride an electric bike. The electric bike looks like a normal bike with the addition of a battery pack in the back and a throttle on the handlebar. On this thirteen mile tour, you can choose to pedal, use the electric power or a combination of both—my favorite.

Spend the day (and night) in the heart of downtown Los Angeles with an array of entertainment, restaurants, shopping and pure fun!
Begin your morning with a bargain-hunting shopping trip at Santee Alley also known as “The Alley.” Located on Santee Street and Maple Avenue, the name exemplifies its atmosphere as you go up and down small alley streets to different vendors selling women’s and men’s clothing, shoes, jewelry, handbags, sunglasses and more. On the weekends it gets extremely crowded, so get there early. For a unique experience of Santee Alley (and more) with a local guide, book the LA Shopping Extravaganza Tour.

L.A.’s streets, downtown, river canals and neighborhoods are instantly recognizable to savvy moviegoers.

The idea of L.A. on a budget might provoke snorts of jaded chuckles in some people, but those people probably live in L.A. so they have a deservedly cynical opinion.

If you’re visiting, restaurants and bars will eat up your money in no time at all; finding L.A’s exclusive, best-kept secrets is part of the fun in visiting the city of Angels, but there are plenty of tourist activities that are no less entertaining. What’s great is that can see much of L.A.’s attractions with a sightseeing tour and a Go Los Angeles card, both of which get you discounted at much of L.A.’s highlights, and thereby making L.A. on a budget a perfectly attainable goal.

Here’s the thing about visiting California in general and Los Angeles in particular: it’s pretty expensive. If you can find a discounted Los Angeles tour, consider yourself lucky. As it turns it out, there is an affordable, open-air, double-decker bus tour of L.A. and Hollywood.

One thing you’ll notice even before you leave the airport (and honestly, fly into Burbank if you can) is that Los Angeles is crowded, and its tourist spots are even moreso. I recommend going to Universal Studios, but I highly recommend going to Universal Studios under the auspices of a Skip-the-Line Tour. You’ll save yourself a lot of time otherwise spent baking in a hot line
