The Great Los Angeles Walk is coming up on November 19th! Launched in 2006 and held on the Saturday before Thanksgiving, the Great LA Walk is a free event that is open to anyone who would like to explore the city on foot. The view in person can be quite different from the view typically seen through a car window!

The walk will begin at City Hall in downtown LA at 9 a.m. on Saturday, November 19th and end 19 miles later at the Pacific Ocean in Santa Monica. The tentative route will pass through several iconic Los Angeles neighborhoods including Hollywood, Echo Park, Los Feliz, Beverly Hills, and yes, even our very own Westwood. The trip takes approximately 8 hours to complete (your pace is completely up to you) and participants stop at any restaurants or food trucks they come across to take care of their own meals.

Put on your walking shoes, see LA in a way you’ve never seen it before and burn some calories before Thanksgiving dinner!
