Things to Do in Beachwood Canyon

You can feel the rich history of early Hollywood as you stroll past fanciful, architecturally-diverse homes. This is hillside living at its best, with some of the finest view properties in Los Angeles. While centrally-located in a big city, Beachwood Canyon feels like a private hideaway surrounded by nature. It’s easy to hike during day and then cruise down the road for an evening of delicious Thai food and a concert. You’re never far from the action. But if you prefer to hole up in the hills and work on your next screenplay, there may be no better place in Los Angeles to do it!

Walk the Canyon

Take a brisk city walk with a country feeling, starting high in Hollywood's Beachwood Canyon and climbing almost to the base of the Hollywood sign. Along the way are fantastic views of the Hollywood Reservoir and the city below.
