LA Adventures: Eclectic Day Trips by Metro Rail through Los Angeles and Beyond (Paperback)

You don’t need a car to see the best of L.A.,  just a sense of adventure and curiosity.  L.A. Adventures makes it easy and fun to discover Los Angeles in ways you never thought possible - by rail, by bike and by imagination. With fifteen easy to follow day trips for every budget and interest, plus three bike tours to get your blood moving, L.A. Adventures debunks the myth of Los Angeles as a must-have-a-car-city.  From tourist icons to Japanese tacos, from Old Town Pasadena to the oldest occult shop in America, where they'll customize a magic spell for you, this guide takes you to the heart of L.A. and beyond. Along the way you’ll uncover the city's best kept secrets. Did you know you can listen to the world's largest church organ for free? Get a traditional Akusari Korean body scrub at three in the morning? Or lunch on imaginative Mexican-fusion cuisine prepared by reformed gang members? L.A. Adventures takes you step-by-step from sunrise to sunset - what to see, where to eat and how to get there without burning a gallon of gas, or battling freeway traffic. Touring L.A. has never been easier.
