Los Angeles’ wealth of outdoor activities has been key to this recovery, said Burke. As in other cities, the pandemic has brought fresh air to the fore. It’s a trend that’s likely to continue: In July, Los Angeles County announced an indoor mask warrant in response to the surge in coronavirus cases fueled by the delta variant. Visitors looking for outdoor experiences are spoiled for choice, including the recently completed 13-mile park at Playa Trail, which connects Crenshaw’s parks and bike trails to the beach. Forest baths have taken off at the 127-acre Los Angeles County Arboretum and Botanical Garden, and in November the arboretum will unveil Lightscape, a mile-long installation with fountains and thousands of twinkling lights.
