If the Getty Center doesn't quench your thirst for the outdoors, then Griffith Park certainly will. The park is one of the largest urban parks in North America, covering 4,310 acres of land. It is sometimes referred to as the "Central Park of Los Angeles," but it is definitely bigger, more rugged, and loaded with famous attractions throughout. Because of its size and variety in foliage, many producers have filmed in almost any spot in the park, and you may just recognize parts from scenes in films such as Back to the Future, Terminator, Star Trek, and Van Helsing. Griffith Park also houses Griffith Observatory, which is a great idea for a break from hiking the trails.
