The Best Sausages in Los Angeles

Sausage is a time-tested tradition that takes off-cuts of meat and transforms them with spices and seasoning into encased flavor bombs. Oktoberfest first started in 1810 in Munich and has since become a hotbed for communal beer and sausage consumption. That legacy continues locally at places like Torrance’s Alpine Village. Thankfully, people don’t need to rely on that raucous stretch of time in September and October to get sausage drunk. Sausage traditions also extend far beyond Bavaria, around the globe. Discover 10 places to enjoy house-made sausages in L.A.

Discover the Top 10 Surfing Spots in Los Angeles

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.”
