"Polar Bear Plunge doesn't mean anything to you? Well, you've probably already seen it in movies. It's an event that takes place during the winter (otherwise it wouldn't be funny!) and during which the participants have to dive into the water, often very cold because of the season. In Los Angeles the water temperature remains relatively mild, averaging 13°C. Why not pack your best swimsuit and get in the water to celebrate the new year? There are several Polar Bear Plunges in and around Los Angeles, but the one in Venice Beach is particularly nice for its setting and atmosphere.
