Kayak the LA River.
LA River Kayak SafariLA River (2055 N Figueroa St, Los Angeles, CA 90065) Map it $65
In a city known for its proximity to water, the LA River has never been a featured highlight. That is slowly changing as consistent clean up efforts have now transformed this once polluted waterway into natural wildlife refuge amongst the concrete jungle. The LA River Kayak Safari begins with a gentle 2.5 mile bike ride starting near the 5 freeway down to Rattlesnake Park (near the 2 freeway). Then after a brief tutorial on how to actually ride a kayak, you paddle down the mild class 1 river to your original starting point. A totally original way to experience your city.
