In Los Angeles, you will find the widest range of opportunities. You can find the endless activities that come with Hollywood and other happening cities, but you can also find endless ways to spend a day outside. A beautiful area and even more beautiful weather make this one of the best places to get outdoors, and one of the best times to do this is during the spring. The following are the top five spring outdoor activities in Los Angeles.
Check Out the World-Famous Beaches
Visiting one of Los Angeles’ countless, amazing beaches is never a bad idea, regardless of the season. But during the spring, consistently sunny weather comes together with cool Pacific Ocean water to make for one of the best swimming and relaxation experiences you have ever had. But many of these iconic beaches offer much more than that, as the boardwalks and neighborhoods surrounding these beaches offer endless things to see and do.
You might be saying, “Hey, there are some indoor areas at Disneyland.” You’ve got us there, but walking around this amazing place is never so pleasant as it is in the gorgeous weather of spring. You can also avoid some of the crazy summer crowds during this time. You will find that a spring Disneyland vacation does in fact live up to the “Happiest Place on Earth” designation.
See Captivating Wildlife
There are endless avenues you can pursue if you are trying to see amazing wildlife in the Los Angeles area. But the spring affords the once in a lifetime opportunity of seeing a whale migration. During this time, gray whales and their babies are migrating throughout these waters. You can see these majestic animals from the shore or book a whale watching excursion via boat for one of the most unforgettable experiences you will ever have.
Hike Mount Baldy
This is the tallest peak in the Los Angeles area. Because of this and the lack of trees on the mountain, the summit of this peak provides some of the most amazing views you will ever see. Mount Baldy stands 10,064 feet in the air, providing views from downtown L.A. to Catalina Island. Spring affords the first opportunities to reach the top, as the snows of winter begin to melt and expose the trails.
You can find ample opportunity to fish throughout the entire year in Los Angeles, whether you are casting a line right off the pier or going deep sea fishing. But spring brings the coziest conditions for fishing because of the weather, along with great fishing opportunities because of the sheer amount of fish that are biting. You can find abundant yellowtail, sculpin, mackerel, and so many more species of fish.
These may be some of the top outdoor activities in Los Angeles this spring, but this list does not even begin to scratch the surface of the breadth of opportunities you have here. Regardless of your interests, you are sure to find something to satisfy them in Los Angeles this spring.
