Whether you’re in the mood for a hike in one of our peaceful West Covina parks or the latest flicks at Edwards Theater, West Covina offers lots of ways to spend your day off. The team at Mercedes-Benz of West Covina put our heads together for this guide to the very best things to do in West Covina! Read on for our favorite unique entertainment options in the Covina and La Puenta areas!
Edwards Theater West Covina
If you’re looking for an old-fashioned movie house experience, you can’t beat Edwards Theater in West Covina. The historic theater building is huge and ornate, and it’s a lot of fun to take a close look at the architecture inside and out. Plus, Edwards is a frugal alternative to typical movie theaters that may charge upward of $20 per ticket! You won’t get the bells and whistles at Edwards — just a pure movie-going experience for $7.
Bowlero West Covina
Our pick for the best West Covina bowling is Bowlero. That’s because there’s a lot more than bowling on offer here: with billiards, state-of-the-art and old-school arcade games, laser tag, and a sports bar, it’s a true crowd-pleaser! Black lights and HD video walls add to the fun atmosphere. Bowling enthusiasts will appreciate the Pro Shop, where you can pick the bowling gear you need to up your game!
Galster Wilderness Park
Appreciate our home turf in its natural state at one of our best West Covina parks: Galster Wilderness Park! The 42-acre wilderness park is located on the north slope of the San Jose Hills in the San Gabriel Valley. It’s a great place to observe undisturbed local wildlife or spend a day on the biking trails. Operated by the San Gabriel Mountains Regional Conservancy in partnership with the City of West Covina, California, it’s by scouting organizations for educational purposes. Here you’ll find one of the last remaining native plant communities of California Black Walnut (Juglans californica) trees, which grow on the north slope of the San Jose Hills.
Axem Axe Throwing
Axem Axe Throwing is a newcomer to the West Covina entertainment arena, but it’s quickly gaining popularity thanks to their non-intimidating axe-throwing atmosphere. You’ll receive one-on-one time with an expert coach to make sure you can throw safely and confidently — before your session starts! Walk-ins are welcome, although appointments are recommended.
Looking for a collaborative problem-solving activity? There’s nothing like an escape-room adventure to bring team-building to the next level. Unlike many escape rooms, Xscape escape rooms are designed to be engaging without being scary. That makes them better for families, as well as guests who like detective work without the stress! After your escape, your group can convene in the Multi Purpose Room for a team-building session.
