Two Months Until the Great Los Angeles Walk 2013!
Is the GREAT LOS ANGELES WALK back? Of course it is! Like clockwork, our annual urban hike across Los Angeles takes place the Saturday before Thanksgiving -- which means SATURDAY, NOVEMBER 23 this year.
As you know by now, I launched the Great Los Angeles Walk in 2006 as a way to celebrate my tenth year in Los Angeles. That year, inspired by the book "Wilshire Boulevard: Grand Concourse of Los Angeles," we walked Wilshire. In 2007, for an encore, we hiked down Pico Boulevard. The 2008 Walk took on Santa Monica Blvd. (via Sunset). In 2009, the event kicked off in the historic West Adams district and walked to Venice Beach via Adams and Washington. For its fifth edition in 2010, the Great Los Angeles Walk returned to Wilshire. In 2011 we hit Hollywood and last year we made Melrose our centerpiece.
Where shall we go this year? I need your help in deciding. Take the poll below. Should we stick with the downtown-to-ocean theme? Finally hit the Valley? Or really mix it up?
Meanwhile, read our 2012 recap here. And watch one Walker's video from last year below.
And here I am on KCAL/9 news last year, discussing the Walk!
