Today's Walk - Downtown Van Nuys

I am trying to walk between 1 1/2 to 2 miles each day in an effort to lose some weight. I find that I get bored if I walk the same route again and again, so I am trying out various loops through the neighborhood to keep things fresh. Today, Rosanne and I walked around downtown Van Nuys. This gave us a chance to check out the, now completed, Civic Center remodel and the completed Braude Center building.

On a side note, we also discovered that the Van Nuys Branch of the LA Public Library will be closed for remodeling from March 24 through April 26, so plan to visit another of the area branches for your library needs during that time.

The map above was created with GMAP Pedometer, a Google Maps mashup site that allows you to mark routes on a Google Map and then provides you with distance information and more. I use this whenever I try out a new route where I haven't had a chance to walk with my Garmin eTrex GPS.
