Concierge Corner: Outdoor Adventures in LA

Since summer is in full swing, and our weather is deliciously perfect, I wanted to cover all the great things that you can do outside. So put on some sunscreen and get on out there!

 

I’M CRAVING ADRENALINE! ANY COOL ACTIVITIES FOR ADVENTURE SEEKERS?

Southern California is no stranger to extreme sports. With so many different terrains within a short drive, there are plenty of ways to get an adrenaline rush. So if shopping and sightseeing are not your speed, try out one of these awesome outdoor adventures. Bust out your Go-Pro, and do it!

 


 

CATALINA ISLAND ZIPLINE ECO TOUR

Escape for a day or two and head out to Catalina Island where you can enjoy a short hike and propel down 5 separate zip lines! Reaching speeds of nearly 40 mph, you’ll be going faster than golf carts that dominate the island. More than just adventure, you will even learn about the history, wildlife, and vegetation that make Catalina so unique.

#InsiderTip: Make sure you have a strap on your camera so you can easily take your own video and pictures!

 


 

SKYDIVE PERRIS

Just a quick one hour drive out of Los Angeles, they offer several package options that include Indoor Skydiving, a Tandem Jump, and even the real-deal Accelerated Free-Fall. They even have a full bar, restaurant, and pool, so you can relax and take in what you’ve just experienced. Don’t let age hold you back, Seniors get a discount on Sundays, and every first timer gets a free t-shirt!

MARINA DEL REY PARASAILING

You can choose from their 500 ft or 800 ft flying packages that will take you soaring over the Pacific and along the coast. Enjoy the panoramic views of the Marina, Venice Beach, Santa Monica Pier, and maybe even spot a dolphin or two! Fly solo or with friends as flights can accommodate up three people! Of course, you can always observe from the boat, but whats’ the fun in that?!

#InsiderTip: You decide whether you touch the water or not. But the choice is clear—get wet!
