32 Rad Under-The-Radar L.A. Spots You've Got To Visit

[UPDATE: This story was originally published on October 16.]
Although we know some of you are TCFS (read: too cool for school), many of us are still uncovering the many nooks and crannies of L.A. — especially in a town full of implants (you know which kind we're talking about). And that's the true beauty of Tinseltown — no matter how long you've lived here, you can still discover something new. Your curiosity will never be satiated.
And, since R29 is all about pioneering new ground, we've put on our camo and tried to unearth some of the coolest tucked-away spots that even natives might not know about. From waterfall hikes and Ryan Gosling's eatery (yep, he owns a resto) to the bridge referenced in that famous Chili Peppers ode to our hometown, these 32 places will make you say "no" to The Grove and "yes" to exploring uncharted territory. Just step right up, and choose your own adventure!
