Los Angeles’s beaches are a great natural resource and offer surfing, swimming, and volleyball. The 27-mile (43-km) long beach, with its adjacent bike and skate paths, makes for delightful and invigorating rides. Beachside bike and skate rental outlets are plentiful.
Griffith Park and Topanga State Park offer miles of hiking trails. Griffith Park also has horse trails, two golf courses, and two tennis centers.
