You don’t have to travel to Rio to get a taste of this year’s summer Olympics. From swimming and diving to beach volleyball and soccer, summer sports rule supreme in the land of sun and surf. Now get out there and celebrate the summer Olympics (and all thing Rio) the LA way.

Drive A Historic Street

From Downtown to Santa Monica, Olympic Blvd is one awesome stretch of Los Angeles highway. And yes, it's named after the games. Tenth Street was renamed Olympic Boulevard in honor of the Games of the Tenth Olympiad. Take a drive down the historic street in honor of the games.
