You’ve probably heard someone say, “No one walks in LA.”  We want to make sure you know that’s not true. Plenty of people are walking around neighborhoods like Venice, Downtown, and Santa Monica. Sure, the car is the most common way of travel, but there is a lot to see on foot. Los Angeles walking tours provide a new perspective on the city that can’t be seen from the front seat. Here are five of our favorites.
