Electric Bike Ride through the Verdugo Mountains

If you’re looking for an off the beaten path adventure, then join us for an exciting electric mountain bike ride through the Verdugo Mountains. We'll fine tune your electric biking skills on the quiet side streets of Verdugo Woodlands before ascending into the mountains. Epic views of the Angeles National Forest will loom above us as we effortlessly climb high into the Verdugo Mountains. You'll enjoy stunning views of Downtown, surrounding mountain ranges, and the ocean as we ride the ridgeline far above the city landscape. Then we'll kick it into high gear as we make our final ascent through the infamous La Tuna Canyon where we'll take profile worthy pictures and have a snack break in the shade as we enjoy the best view of the greater Los Angeles area. On the way down you'll feel the wind in your hair as we breeze down the canyon side.
$249.00 per adult

Interesting exhibits, not too small that someone might roll his eyes but not too big that you need a really long time to get through everything. Friendly, helpful staff.

We almost skipped this - so glad we didn't! It's a small local history museum, but very well laid out & well maintained. Admission is free, but donations are certainly appreciated. The museum has various displays ranging from the early history of the area to some of the more recent people who have lived there or came from there. There is a lot of information to read, which is right up our alley. There is a small local artist exhibited in the back, which was interesting as well - she talked about the inspiration for each of her pieces. We were there close to 2 hours, but we like to read everything. We thoroughly enjoyed it.

The small size of this museum means you can breeze in for a quick visit. Focused on the History of the City of Arcadia, and the size of the collection is small compared to other similar type museum. The good thing is that a dedicated staff and devoted volunteers serve the community well. Lots of community programs for Scouts, special interests ( like historical photography), and events to bring in a large range of people. Worth a quick trip before going to the nearby Santa Anita Racetrack and/or arboretum.
