Outdoor Activities in Valencia
Valencia is a city with so much to do thanks to its location near the beach as well as the mountains. It’s also a city that takes full advantage of all the public outdoor spaces! From the beautiful parks to the beach, you’ll see people doing all sorts of exercise, such as walking, biking, doing yoga, or even group crossfit classes! Valencia is also known in Europe as a running city – almost every weekend you can find some sort of race to participate in! Below we’ve compiled a list of some of the best ways to enjoy the city for those of you wanting to get outside and enjoy the weather!
