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.”
