Off-Limits LA

A brand new show from the Travel Channel premiered yesterday called Off-Limits. The episode took a look at some of the hidden gems of LA. I highly recommend checking out the episode, it really only covered a fraction of the hidden gems and secrets of the city.

What was covered was the paddling down the LA River, the scandal behind are aqueduct, the hidden oil pumps throughout the city (one right behind the Beverly Hills Mall), a hidden Nazi compound, and on a lighter note the history of Venice Beach and Abbot Kinney. I wondered where that street got it's name.

If you watch the episode the Abbot Kinney left his mark in Venice Beach and see how some lucky home owners have a river up to there house so they can kayak to the beach via their driveways.
