We all know that living in the sprawling metropolitan area of Los Angeles can be pretty hectic and stressful… From April 21-29, get away from the city and reconnect with nature by taking part in National Park Week! All of the nation’s 397 national parks will be open to the public free of charge. Locally, the Santa Monica Mountains National Recreation Area is a beautiful place to go hiking, with picturesque views of the Pacific Ocean and surrounding coastline. Happy trails!
Location: National Parks Nationwide – Santa Monica Mountains National Recreation Area
