Since the only "secret" you know about in LA is that there are these canyons you can drive through as an alternative to the 405 (REALLY GUYS!!!), get far more into the actual nitty gritty with this guide to the real secrets of LA, including invisible oil derricks, underground prohibition tunnels, and "Ponyland".
1. One of the best views in the city? Try a public tennis court on a rooftop in WeHo.
On the first floor of the parking facility at 647 North San Vicente Blvd (adjacent to the West Hollywood Library), stop into the cashier’s office to exchange your ID for a free key card, then take the elevator to the roof and step out onto the smooth, clean West Hollywood Park Tennis Courts. Play here is first-come, first-serve, but if you have to wait, you’ll enjoy kick-ass views of the hills, both Hollywood and Beverly.
