Hollywood is considered the land of dreams, where young actors venture to make their mark and sheep flock during daylight savings time. Watch dreams come true from great heights with today’s Groupon: for $20, you get a Hollywood Sign Adventure Tour from LA Active Adventures (a $50 value).
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.
