LA's Tinder is but a sea of bronzed Angelenos standing atop a scenic crest, proclaiming their love of hiking. And why not? LA offers a bounty of beautiful nature and sweeping views. However, what exactly a hike is can vary greatly. We've got woods hiking, mountain hiking, desert hiking, ocean-side hiking, and hiking that's not very strenuous and kind of not hiking at all -- in other words, bring-your-chihuahua hiking. There's Runyon Canyon, of course, the definitive hike for those who want to see and be seen, but we've also got plenty of cool hidden trails for those who want to take the path less Instagrammed.
Making geography-based friends & lovers
Companionship can be hard to find, but even harder still when two parties live on opposite sides of the great divide that is the 405. If you live in, say, Koreatown, and your honey lives in Santa Monica, you could be looking at a two-hour rush hour drive to meet them for dinner. Or if your pal's coming to Koreatown, where are they going to park? Sometimes, the convenience of a $7 Lyft or a 10-minute drive and easy parking is too good to pass up, even if the sparks aren't there. Perhaps the new Expo Line will be the great equalizer.
