By trading in gas pedals for bike pedals, Bikes and Hikes LA riders adopt a green method for sightseeing the shores and slopes surrounding Los Angeles on top-notch, fully suspended hybrid road bikes from specialized brands such as Trek and Fuji. Carefully researched routes—such as that of the Movie Star Homes Tour that takes guests down Rodeo Drive and the Sunset Strip, and includes a walking tour of a famous Beverly Hills mansion—lay the groundwork for what is ranked as TripAdvisor's best tour in West Hollywood. For the LA in a Day tour, sightseers pedal by celebrity homes in Beverly Hills and Bel-Air before exploring picturesque Venice, Santa Monica, and Marina Del Rey. Tour guides can accommodate groups of 2–100 people, providing translators in any language and building custom experiences, such as scavenger-hunt bike rides or group levitations, upon request.

You've probably seen the backs of the heads belonging to Aaron Toney, Jake Huang, and Travis Wong. They're professional stuntmen who have worked on blockbuster films such as Spiderman 3, Twilight: Breaking Dawn, and The Hangover 3. But their flair for mesmerizing movements and impossible stunts isn't just confined to Hollywood sets or Jack Nicholson's living room. The trio co-owns Joining All Movement Center, where they and their staff of coaches teach extreme classes such as parkour and tricking, a flashy combination of martial arts, breakdancing, and gymnastics, drawing on their experience from appearing on America's Got Talent and MTV's Ultimate Parkour Challenge.

Although many of the trickers' movements seem unreal, you can be assured that CGI isn't used. In its place is the facility's gravity-defying amenities such as ample floor space, including spring-loaded, rubber, and wooden surfaces; a trampoline that borders a 22-foot-long foam pit; and a 20'x35' inflatable AirTrick mat.

Hargo Singh at LA Active Adventures reveal the history of Hollywood Hills and the city's natural beauty on a moderately strenous hike to capture unique views of the Hollywood sign. During 60-minute expeditions, up to six urban hikers traverse sidewalks and paved paths through Hollywood, marveling at the whimsical architecture and native plants illuminated by the docent's glowing third eye. Walk softly to glimpse wildlife such as coyotes and eucalyptus-munching deer, or join spirited conversation about why the iconic sign was installed. The hike's striking views reveal a panorama of the city, with a cluster of skyscrapers downtown dwarfed by mountains and the long shadow of King Kong. As the excursion is strenuous, walking shoes, sun protection, and light layers are recommended to keep bodies comfortable.
