Los Angeles is one of the top tourism destinations in the world, with the celebrity of Hollywood, the glamour of Beverly Hills and the simple beauty of Southern California beaches drawing tourists from near and far. Undoubtedly, the COVID-19 pandemic has changed many people’s travel experiences since health and safety become the top priority. Although many traditional tourism activities aren’t available anymore, there remain many outdoor activities to appreciate the wonders of Los Angeles.
