A Trip to the L.A. Old Zoo
If you want to see something really cool and different or if you love urban exploring you have to check out the L.A. Old Zoo located in Griffith Park. The best thing about it is you can actually roam through the old cages which were built in the 1930s to see how bears, big cats, monkeys and other animals once lived. This site isn't the size of a typical city zoo, it's actually small and only takes a few minutes to see everything but if you want you can take your time and go in and out of each cage to see life from a zoo animals perspective. Most of them are covered with graffiti which gives it a gritty feel to it and be prepared to bend and stoop in order to get in some of the cages on the backside of the path because they are really small and tight to get into and look out for cut out holes in the fence to enter inside. If you're looking for something to do that's a little off the beaten path it's definitely worth checking out at least once. There has also been tv shows filmed here and the day I went someone was having a photo shoot in one of the cages.
