Los Angeles, CA

San Vincente Blvd.

The shady, greenery-lined median of San Vicente Boulevard is a popular running spot near Santa Monica, Westwood, and Brentwood. The wide median park makes it very pleasant and roomy for runners, although you do have to run on the grass along the median or the bike lane on the road. San Vincente Blvd. runs from the intersection of Wilshire Ave. to Ocean Ave. near Santa Monica Beach. The median begins at Federal Avenue, just east of the Tavern restaurant, and heads west for four miles through the Brentwood community, terminating at Ocean Avenue. Enjoy the route lined with coral trees, luxury homes and spectacular coastal views.  Landmarks from east to west include L.A. National Veterans Park, the Brentwood Country Club, numerous shops and restaurants. Note that this route is quite hilly, running steadily downhill toward Santa Monica. One can do the entire 8-mile out and back, or sections of San Vincente Blvd. combining it with other routes.
