Break Out of the Best Escape Rooms in Los Angeles

Formerly called Escape Key, the rooms at 60out in West L.A. (other locations in Hollywood, Melrose and Marina del Rey) feature a game master/magician that stays in play throughout your hour to keep you clued in and entertained. As such, the idea is to have as much fun as possible during your visit - there's even a half-hour of magic preceding your hour of escaping. The sets are fun and creative with unusual moving parts and not your usual lock-combo decoding tasks.

El Porto is exactly what you picture when you think “Southern California beach” - white sands, volleyball courts, and lots of sun-loving types on hot days. It’s a great spot to surf, especially in the fall and winter when bigger and more consistent swells roll in from the northwest. Summer, meanwhile, is good for beginners. There is a large parking lot, but it tends to fill up quickly so arrive early to snag a spot and hit the waves. According to Wagner, “Because it is so close to the airport, it’s a great place to go to catch a quick wave if you have an overnight flight with an L.A. layover, since it’s close by.”
