Residents of AKA Beverly Hills can take a guided Los Angeles horseback-riding trip through the Hollywood Hills with Sunset Ranch. The one-hour guided tour takes riders through the hills of Griffith Park. From this 5,000 acre park in the heart of Los Angeles, residents will see the famous Hollywood sign, Griffith Observatory and downtown Los Angeles. The two-hour trip takes riders to the top of Mount Hollywood, the highest point in Griffith Park, where they can check out all of Los Angeles from downtown to the beach, the mountains to Catalina and Mount Wilson to Santa Monica.
Personal Surf Lessons
If AKA residents are interested in water sports, well-known surf instructor and fitness expert Sergio Peñaloza offers private surfing lessons in LA on the shores of Santa Monica so residents can learn to shred some waves while here. The lesson starts with a sand lesson to get used to standing up and properly lying down on the board. Sergio will go over the paddling technique and how to control the surfboard, as well as how to stay safe in the water. Enthusiasts will learn how and when to “pop up” while riding the waves. After a stretch session, it's time to head out and hit the waves.
Malibu Discovery Tours
For the wine connoisseurs, Malibu Discovery Tours is the perfect option. A luxury vehicle will pick up residents at AKA and whisk them away for a relaxing day of wine tasting in Malibu. “Scenic beauty, great wines, delicious food” is the motto here, and visitors will surely enjoy sipping and swirling their way through Malibu’s wine country, tasting award-winning wines in quaint tasting rooms and enjoying lunch with magnificent views.
