Make a plan to ditch the car for the long weekend! Here are four options for navigating your way sustainably to some 4th of July fun.
- Ahead of the official national holiday, on Saturday, July 2, celebrate Griffith Park Drive's transformation into a bicycle and pedestrian path by walking, running, hiking, or rolling through the public recreation destination starting at 9:00 a.m.
- Don't worry about traffic or parking your car with Time Out Los Angeles' list of transit-accesible locations to see fireworks. Forget all about gas prices, overstuffed parking garages and ride share surge pricing with these fireworks show picks at LA Metro-accessible spots — specifically ones that are within a short walk or a quick shuttle transfer from the station.
- Soak up that extra sunshine and cover some ground on two wheels instead of four this 4th of July. Take a spin at one of these great places to bike in L.A.
- Go Metro to the shore or beat the heat at a transit-accessible public pool. You can also hop aboard the Big Blue Bus to enjoy Independence Day at the Santa Monica Pier, on 3rd Street Promenade or Abbott Kinney, and in Venice or Marina del Rey.
