Los Angeles Off The Beaten Path: 352 reviews and 621 photos

For those seeking to be in a "normal" spot just outside of Los Angeles, Covina would well suit. I recommend coming if you like quaint, not-as-commercial downtown areas, which Covina has. I frequent here ever so often and enjoy the pass of antiques and little gift shops while surrounded by the trees that line the street. For vacation interests, the city hosts one of the largest Christmas parades. There are decent hotels and motels here for travellers at modest prices. If wanting to experience Los Angeles and Pasadena, Covina serves as a good in-between spot to stay....oh, and if you are an IKEA fan, there is one here. One of only a few in the L.A. area! Get your fix of lingonberry pancakes (and oh yeah, furniture and knick-knacks) here!

Reach Covina via downtown LA, Pershing Square to Metro 490, exit Badillo/Citrus
