5 LA Adventures That Will Make Your Friends Jealous

Nicolas Armstrong

Let’s be honest, part of the reason we go out is so we can brag about how great it was to our friends (we’re all suckers for Facebook photo-ops). But native Angelenos and savvy travelers have a dilemma: they already know the obvious hot spots in Los Angeles. As a remedy, we’ve created a list of 5 overlooked adventures, all of them are guaranteed to incite envy.

San Gabriel Mountains

1. Bridge to Nowhere

Bridge, Forest

The Bridge to Nowhere, tucked in the San Gabriel Mountains, offers something more unique than most hiking spots: bungee jumping. That’s right, at the end of the bridge (that really does lead to nowhere), you have the option to jump. If bungee jumping doesn’t strike your fancy, you can hike down to the river just below and splash around while other people take the plunge. A hike, a cliff-dive and a splash in the river – a perfect way to spend a day.
