Echo Park Pedal Boats
751 Echo Park Avenue
Pedal across the LakeEcho Park Lake is famous for its lotus beds, which are in peak bloom every summer during the Lotus Festival. The best way to see them is up close, which is easy enough thanks to cheap pedal boat rentals right on the lake. It’s just $11 for adults and $6 for kids for an hour on the water, which is more than enough time to make it across the 13-acre lake. If you prefer an upper-body workout while you cruise past the lotus beds, try one of the hand crank pedal boats instead for $25 per hour.
