I love to discover new places where you can exercise for free and enjoy the view at the same time. Hiking is definitely a 2fer for me - exercising and sightseeing at the same time! It never gets boring, especially if you know of several spots for hiking. I recently have discovered a great place with the most amazing view of the ocean - Palos Verdes Hills! This place is not crowded and soooo pretty to look at. You drive all the way to the top, park your car, and go hiking all the way to the shore. Make sure you wear your tennis shoes, bring lots of water, and a camera is a must! If you live in Los Angeles or just visiting, from LAX take Pacific Coast Hwy south, turn right on Crenshaw blvd, and go all the way up until the road ends (Or get off the 405 at Crenshaw). Enjoy your hiking!
