For 2016, the 11th Annual Great Los Angeles Walk Returns to Pico Boulevard!

It's time to take another peek at Pico.

For the 11th Annual Great Los Angeles Walk, we're heading back to PICO BOULEVARD (the locale for our second-ever Walk, in 2007)!

This year's walk also doubles as my own personal celebration of my 20th anniversary in Los Angeles. As you may know, I began the Great Los Angeles Walk in 2006 as a way to mark my first decade in our city. And now here we are, a decade later, and the Walk lives on!

Pico was one of my favorite Great Los Angeles Walk locales, because we made a point to eat our way across town. Here's how I summed up the walk in 2007:

Great Los Angeles Walkers who made it from end-to-end got to experience, along the way, the bustling (even at 9 in the morning) fashion district; the Convention Center (currently home to the Auto Show); the Central American-dominated Byzantine-Latino Quarter; the city's shortest street (Powers Place); the beautiful old homes of Alvarado Terrace; a slice of Koreatown; the gut-busting food of spots like Oki-Dog and Roscoe's Chicken and Waffles; the sight of a massive crane that tipped over (smashing the roof of a yoga studio) in Mid-City; the closed (for the Sabbath) Jewish shops and restaurants west of Fairfax; the Fox lot; dodging golf balls next to the Rancho Park golf course; the cool ocean breeze once we hit Santa Monica; and much more.
