Los Angeles has always been ahead of the curve when it comes to green travel, from eco-friendly public transit to Green Seal and LEED certified hotels. Visitors can explore the city and stay green with the all-electric Metro Rail system, as well as the nation’s largest fleet of natural gas powered buses. A green vacation starts with one of L.A.’s Green Seal or LEED-certified hotels. Explore the city on two wheels with tour companies like Bikes and Hikes, or bike along L.A.’s hundreds of miles of trails. Take a scenic drive with a hybrid gas/electric rental for maximum fuel efficiency. Gather a group and let someone else do the driving with companies that offer everything from clean-diesel Mercedes to hybrid SUVs. From organic menus to sustainable design, L.A. restaurants have a long-standing commitment to the green movement, while farmers markets have some of the best local, organic offerings.
