Where to stay in Los Angeles

Los Angeles may be synonymous with luxury, but its accommodations include not only some of the most opulent and expensive hotels in the world, but also budget-priced hostels and inexpensive inns. In Los Angeles, a car opens up a world of lodging options, allowing you to stay outside the city proper and still have easy access to most major tourist attractions. If you don't mind splurging, consider Hollywood or Beverly Hills. To save money, stay near the airport or in the eastern suburbs of the city.

  • nice (tough) hike up the hills - view is spectacular of Hollywood and also the Hollywood sign. Fun. Lot of people walking the trails this weekend.  more »
  • Similar and not as good views as Griffiths park. Nightmare to park when we went on a Sat am and everyone exercising there. Enjoyed the drive to it up Mulholland drive but Runyan Canyon itself a little...  more »

  • A must for an afternoon hike that rewards with magnificent views of the greater LA metropolitan from Downtown LA in the east to Culver City in the west. The hiking trails have been upgraded and include a mixture of winding gravel paths as well as the fire truck roads (very safe!). Parking is tricky and limited at both entrances, so be prepared to do a little searching or waiting for a spot to open up. No celebrity sightings, so I suppose I will have to return...
  • Challenging enough for most. Paved portions for the sandal crowd, off road for the adventuresome. Great people watching, it is after all in the middle of Hollywood. Weekends get crowded. Drinking fountains in strategic spots. Go with friends or headphones, you'll have fun either way
  • The go to dog park in Los Angeles. Miles of trails and plenty of amazing vistas await. Come prepared. Bring poo bags for the dogs, some sunscreen and containers for water. It's easy to get dehydrated here, and there isn't much shade either. A great place to mingle with everyone, and their dogs too.
  • My most favorite place to workout. I come as early as 5 - 6 am and as late as 6-7 pm and the view here is beautiful. Today at night there was amazing fog. A lot of people bring their dogs here to walk them and at the same time get a great and refreshing work out. At the entrance (the bottom of the canyon) there is a special grass field designated for yoga enthusiasts.
  • Come early, great place to seriously train. Come late, great place to seriously waste time. To each his own. Great outdoor workout in the city
