Driving L.A.: Exploring Los Angeles in Your New 2017 Subaru

Your new 2017 Subaru - whether it’s an Outback, Forester, Legacy or WRX model - is designed to travel the road less taken. If you're relatively new to Los Angles and already tired of sticking to your usual commute route back and forth to work, consider some fun drives in L.A. County that will show you some of the best - and certainly most interesting - scenery and stops the city has to offer.

  • Drive 1: Sunset Strip from Crescent Heights Boulevard to Doheny Drive. No other road has the multiple personalities of this less than two-mile stretch on Sunset Boulevard. In a matter of blocks while cruising in your 2017 Subaru Legacy you’ll see a cowboy saloon, trendy boutique hotels, more than a few tattoo parlors, and giant billboards covering the sides of buildings. The Strip is the ultimate cruising destination, a place where every night has the potential to turn into a David Lynch movie. Consider stopping to catch some live music at the Whisky A Go Go (made famous in the '60s by bands like The Doors), The Roxy, the Viper Room or House of Blues® Sunset Strip; or see top-name comedy acts at the Comedy Store or the Laugh Factory.
  • Drive 2: Hollywood Boulevard from La Brea Avenue to Vine Street. The Story: This stretch is the source of much of Los Angeles' early Hollywood lore and is fun drive in a 2017 Subaru WRX . Today, it’s still a tourist center and hotter than ever, thanks to major renovations. Attractions such as the Hollywood & Highland Center, a massive entertainment and shopping complex, and the Dolby Theatre (home of the Oscars®) have injected energy into the area. But the street still retains a gritty sense of charm with its odd stores selling movie souvenirs and its cast of eccentric characters — from sidewalk rappers to pierced punk rockers. At TCL Chinese Theatre, an eclectic mix of costumed super heroes and movie characters keep crowds entertained.
  • Drive 3: Wilshire Boulevard from Downtown LA to the Pacific Coast Highway. Wilshire is undoubtedly the backbone of Los Angeles, spanning 16 miles from Downtown to Santa Monica and leading you and your 2017 Subaru Forester on a treasure trail of the city’s historic, cultural and architectural roots. A drive down Wilshire, one of the most densely populated roads in the city, will take you through several distinct neighborhoods with a variety of ethnic populations and past nearly every architectural style of the 20th century, from Victorian to Gothic to Art Deco. Begin your tour Downtown, amid some of the tallest and oldest skyscrapers in the city, and ends with stunning views from the Pacific Coast Highway. Along the way, you’ll pass the hustle and bustle of Westlake and Koreatown, the sleek condos of the Miracle Mile, the cultural gems of Museum Row and swanky Beverly Hills shopping. Get up close to a saber-toothed cat at the La Brea Tar Pits; visit the Los Angeles County Museum of Art (LACMA) and its newer addition, the Broad Contemporary Art Museum (BCAM); people watch at the Beverly Wilshire, A Four Seasons Hotel; check out Westwood Village and the Hammer Museum.

These are just three routes to sample in an extraordinarily diverse city. Whether you're in a 2017 Subaru Outback, or any other new Subaru model, you have great drives ahead of you, whether you're starting from Los Angeles. La Puente, Pomona or Diamond Bar.
