LA’s area beaches are awesome, great for people watching, and superb for sunning. However, if you want to avoid burning your feet on the lava-like sand, pass on searching for a parking space for what seems like hours on end, and forego the hike to the nearest bathroom, head to Vista Hermosa Natural Park. This beautiful little gem is the place to go to get away from the hustle and bustle of the city for an afternoon. Beautiful greenery and native plants are great on the eyes. Check out the breathtaking views of the city of Los Angeles. The park is dog friendly so you can bring your friend with you. There is a wonderful kids play area, and plenty of open space to play. Throw your blanket under a shady tree and just relax.
Next time you visit LA you can be sure you will come away with some new memories, fantastic photos, and the knowledge that you can enjoy the city without being in the middle of it.
