    Always charming and quaint, Larchmont Village, near Hancock Park will be hosting  a "Family Fair," complete with talent and costume contests, as well as rides, games, and food suitable for the kiddies. The Larchmont Family Fair takes place on Sunday, October 24th from noon to 5 p.m. and is free, with all proceeds  going to various local non-profits.  I'm hoping for a pumpkin carving station and grilled corn with all the fixin's. See you there!

  • L.A. Sweat Spot #1: Hiking Runyon Canyon in Hollywood

    Posted Under: Parks & Recreation in Hollywood  |  August 15, 2010 4:53 PM  |  701 views  |  No comments

    Hiking Runyon Canyon in Hollywood is one of the best places in the center of the city to get a quick taste of the outdoors and a great workout at the same time. The main entrance to the beginning of the hiking trail of Runyon Canyon in Hollywoodis Just north of Hollywood and Franklin Blvds., and one block east of La Brea Ave., on Fuller Ave.  

    The early bird catches the worm when it comes to street parking on the weekends, so if you are planning on hiking Runyon Canyon in Hollywood on Saturday or Sunday, I think going early is better to avoid the crowds and the heat. The weekdays after work are a great time to go too; the sunset can't be beat and they'll be fewer people to contend with. The park closes at sunset, so be sure to be down the hill by then. There are free yoga classes throughout the week, held in the grass near the entrance to Runyon Canyon in Hollywood. The trail has two main routes: one is a fairly gradual incline on even terrain, while the other trails around the back side of the hills on both sides of the canyon and are fairly uneven, steep, and challenging. The views are amazing, and on a clear day you can see all the way to the ocean. Be sure to stretch, take some water, and have a great hike in Runyon Canyon in Hollywood!
