The Los Angeles Times and KNBC-Channel 4 have been great in sharing word about the Great Los Angeles Walk over the years, and thanks to them the word continues to get out about the event!
As Alysia Gray Painter writes in her piece for NBCLosAngeles.com:
Count 'em up: How many shops or eateries or libraries or civic offices or churches or plazas have you zipped by, in a car or in a bus or on a bicycle, vowing to return later, on foot, to see just what that building was all about?
Do you go back? And poke your head into all of the head-poke-able places, to get to know our massive-o-polis of a city even better?
If so, high fives. If not, high fives, because you have the impulse, and, yes, a way-busy schedule.
But there's a Saturday to-do just ahead, that's totally free to join, and it is all about making good on your whole desire to track-back and check out some of the local sights you've seen through your windshield.
And, yes: To pay affectionate and grateful homage to iconic food writer Jonathan Gold, who passed away earlier this year.
That Saturday is Nov. 17, the event is the 13th annual Great Los Angeles Walk, and, once again, a group of local-loving Southern Californians will set off on a long stroll from DTLA to the Pacific Ocean.
Meanwhile, the Los Angeles Times lists this year's Walk in its roundup of events happening this weekend:
Who says nobody walks in L.A.? The 13th Great Los Angeles Walk is a 16-mile stroll through the city from Pershing Square to Santa Monica. This year’s route goes through Koreatown in honor of Jonathan Gold, the late L.A. Times food critic who loved the neighborhood’s food. Organizers suggest going slowly to take in the sights and the crowd; many new friendships and at least one wedding have come out of the walk.
