Lamps at the LACMA
The LACMA is one of the most popular places to visit on this list.

The Museum of Ice Cream

Franklin Canyon Park
Located in the eastern part of the Santa Monica Mountains, Franklin Canyon Park is a great free hike that is about 5 mils long. The grounds have a nice pond and lake that serve as a protected reserve for the animals that live in it, meaning that if you bring your camera you might come across a lot of cool fish, birds, and even a few turtles.
Murphy’s Ranch is a 4-mile loop trail through the Pacific Palisades and back in the 1930’s, it was a camp for Nazi supporters.

The Wisdom Tree
This is the newest edition of Griffith Park. The Wisdom Tree Trail is more of an intermediate hike, but the trail is well kept. Round-trip the hike to the Wisdom Tree should be about 3 miles or 2 hours of time. Once you reach the peak you will see the lone Wisdom Tree on one side of the ridgeline and a huge American Flag on the other side, both with great views and great photo ops.
The Secret Swing in Elysian Park
Located right at Dodger Stadium and the 110 Freeway Elysian Park is a great beginners hike. Not only is this park very underrated, but it has a secret swing on the hillside where many go for photos, picnics and more. The trail to get to the swing is steep, but extremely short, which means that you should wear some sturdy shoes.
