5. Go horseback riding

6. Go indoor/outdoor skydiving

Some of the most reputable skydiving centers are Skydive Coastal California, IFLY Indoor Skydiving Hollywood, etc. This is a great thing to check off your bucket list and who would not want to do it in LA.

If you aren’t from the West Coast, you should definitely add this to your list. You are able to potentially see Blue, Humpback, and Grey Whales.

8. Paraglide on the coast

If you are too scared to skydive, this is a good option because you won’t fall from the sky but you will still get the feeling of flying. A typical trip is about 20 minutes.
