Description:

For a more laid-back experience head to the first Muscle Beach, not to be confused with its Venice Beach cousin. The tradition started in the early 1900s as a way for people to escape from the harsh realities of life - like the Great Depression. You might have seen it in many films and celebrities such as Jack Lalanne trained here. Today it's a place for anyone who wants to get fit or have fun, including children who can play at a small jungle gym. (Submitted by Rajie Brown)
