SHED CALORIES AS YOU BOOST YOUR L.A. I.Q. – ONE STEP AT A TIME!
WALK THIS WAY...
Here's just a sampling of the landmarks you'll encounter on these walks...
... and hundreds of other L.A. landmarks, past and present!
10,000 Steps a Day in L.A. is for urban adventurers with a passion for healthy living who are also eager to explore Los Angeles—from its most legendary locations to its more hidden, unsung, and quirky sites.
In this first-ever book to explore the 10,000-steps lifestyle in Los Angeles, we journey through the city’s streets, beaches, mountains, rivers, reservoirs, and parks, from Simi Valley to South from Pasadena to Pacific Palisades. Tread the grounds of a defunct Disney attraction called Dwarfland. Trace the extinct canals of Venice Beach. Stroll the shortest Main Street in America. Discover hidden streams, secret murals, lost cities, Hollywood haunts, houses made of stone, and parks that time forgot!
Most importantly, 10,000 Steps a Day in L.A. offers a sense of fun and discovery about Los Angeles that makes the goal of these roughly 5-mile walks easy to attain. Readers need not wear Fitbits or Pedometers – I’ve charted it all out for you... 52 walks for 52 weekends in the original edition -- with six more added for the second version (Aguora Hills was removed due to extensive fire damage).
Each of the 57 itineraries includes:
• Detailed maps and directions
• Descriptions of the terrain, walking surface, and dog-friendliness of each walk
• Ideal picnic spots
• Parking suggestions
• Sidebars with colorful trivia and anecdotes
