If you're looking for the best spot in LA to get some fresh air but also take some cool photos, we've got you covered. 

With everything from hikes to beaches, here are 8 of the most Instagram-worthy outdoor locations in LA.

1. Venice Beach

The boardwalk at Venice Beach is full of photo ops, whether it's one of their wild performers, the tall, swaying palm trees or simply the hanging sign that says Venice. Venice Beach is a legendary part of California and snapping a cool picture here while enjoying a day at the beach is a win-win situation.

2. Hollywood Sign Hike

Hiking up to the Hollywood Sign is great exercise, and the view is incredible. Head up to the front or even the back of the sign if you want to take a photo where you appear to be on top of the world.

4. Escondido Falls

There are countless things I would change about my body if I could, but the only thing that needs changing is my perception of myself 🌺 today was so amazing 🙌🏽

Visit Escondido Falls in Malibu for a scenic hike and, if you're lucky, a gorgeous 200-foot waterfall. Make sure to go at the right time of year though because this can dry out! It's a 3.7 mile journey to reach, but the outcome is worth it.

5. Wisdom Tree

Happy Friday beautiful people! For those of you going to tomorrow morning’s hike, it’ll be in the high 40’s so dress warm! See you there! .

8. Old LA Zoo

The abandoned Old LA Zoo in Griffith Park opened in 1912 and closed in 1966. Haunted? Possibly. Creepy? Yes.
