Create a camping/hiking variation of a scavenger hunt that focuses on rustic romance: Create clues that lead to items such as sexy but comfy lingerie, a fold-up camping love seat, heart-shaped molds for pancakes and eggs, a rose-tinted lantern, organizers and magnetic flashlight for the tent; and for after a long hike, a relaxing and fragrant essential oil blend. Offer some as prizes and give the others to the bride. Play charades, pantomiming building a campfire, erecting a tent, putting on mosquito repellent, sayings such as “happy camper” and titles such as “Backpacker Magazine.”
Inspiration Point at Will Rogers State Park: Located in the Pacific Palisades, this 2.25-mile loop climbs just over 300 feet. It provides great views of late actor Will Rogers’ ranch, including the polo fields, and on a clear day you can see the ocean and downtown Los Angeles.
