Hg2 : The Hedonist

A Hedonist’s guide to…

Los Angeles

The Beach Cities
Living on the beach nurtures a carefree attitude among residents which is why the beach cities - Hermosa, Manhattan and Redondo - are happy places indeed. Flip-flops at the ready.
Runyon Canyon
If views are your thing a ramble along Runyon Canyon is an incredible way to see the city - from all kinds of awe-inspiring angles.
Learn to Surf LA
Surfing and LA go together like a horse and carriage which is why Learn to Surf LA - one of the best surf schools in the city - is a must for those serious about the surf.
Angel Stadium
Heaven must be missing an angel - a few of them in fact - but luckily we've found them; they're here at the Angel Stadium of Anaheim home to the minor-league Angels. Grab a hot dog a foam finger and enjoy.
LA Horseback Riding
What's not to love about going out in LA horseback riding, galloping through the Santa Monica Mountains upon a fiery steed? Giddy up!
Starline Tours
Renowned operator Starline Tours takes celeb-lovers to the homes of the rich and famous and now beyond.
Perry’s
Perry's is something of an institution on LA sands; offering bikes and burgers in equal measures (not at the same time mind) this is the perfect place to get some exercise and refuel in suitable calorific fashion afterwards.
Surf Academy
Nobody likes to wipe out which is why Surf Academy is a must when thinking of taking to the waters to impress bikini-clad girls.
Honda Center
No it's not a car showroom - it's an indoor arena for the almighty Anaheim Ducks ice hockey's much-beloved team.
Solstice Canyon
Be sure to take your camera with you to Solstice Canyon which offers more superb scenery than you could ever imagine.
Esotouric Bus Adventures
Don't get put off by the idea of a bus tour, when Esotouric takes you on a tour of LA's most hidden treasures it's got to be worth it. And it is ten-fold.
Huntington Beach
Like something straight off a postcard Huntington Beach offers the kind of orange-hued dreamscape that would make anyone want to pack up and move to LA. Sun sand surf and so many damn sexy people.
Dodger Stadium
Baseball is huge here in Los Angeles and there's no better place to watch it than at Dodger Stadium - home to the almighty Dodgers. Go wild in the crowds.
Los Angeles Conservancy
For a deeper cultural or architectural insight (beyond the obvious glitz and glam’) join one of LA Conservancy’s tours.
Santa Monica Surf School
Surf's up! So grab your board and head down to Santa Monica where there's plenty of swell and the Santa Monica Surf School to get you started.
Segway Los Angeles
It may look a little daft whizzing about on a Segway but it's an ideal way to comb the city without having to actually move your legs.
Trapeze School New York
If you've ever want to pack everything in and run away with the circus then Trapeze School New York may be just the thing. The best bit? It's not only in New Yo
Silent Movie Theatre
Devoted to reinvigorating the movie-going experience, the owners of the Silent Movie Theatre believe that movies work best as social experiences. Get involved and pay a visit to this quirky cinema.
