STUDIO CITY (CBSLA.com) — The 8th Annual Great Los Angeles Walk takes place this weekend!
Michael Schneider, Los Angeles Bureau Chief for TV Guide Magazine, visited the KCAL9 studios Friday to talk about the annual free event dispelling the myth that “nobody walks in LA”.
It’s happening this Saturday, November 23rd and centers around Sunset Boulevard.
Participants will meet at Echo Park Lake’s “Lady of the Lake” statue at 9 a.m. on Saturday, Nov. 23, and proceed to walk approximately 17.8 miles (at a casual, all-day pace) to the ocean, mostly via Sunset Boulevard and the famed Sunset Strip.
The Walk will follow Sunset Blvd. to Whittier Drive (at the edge of Beverly Hills), then Wilshire Boulevard to the ocean. Walkers will pass through a diverse cross-section of the region, starting with the newly rehabilitated Echo Park Lake, flowing into neighborhoods including Echo Park, Silver Lake, Los Feliz and Hollywood. Then comes West Hollywood and the legendary Sunset Strip, followed by Beverly Hills, Westwood, West L.A. and Santa Monica.
The Great Los Angeles Walk will also include a lunch on the Sunset Strip and conclude with an after party in Santa Monica.
