I saw Angels Flight in movies and on TV and just had to see it for myself. It’s like taking a step back in history. The cars have beautiful rich wood interiors. The train is very narrow, the seat face each other (see photo). Angels...More

I read the book "Angels Flight" by Michael Connelly in 1986 and have wanted to ride it since then. Since we live in Wyoming we don't get to LA very often. When we did get there in 2014 we went by Angels Flight but it...More

It's only a few minutes but it's nice! Having a trip on Angels Flight is great. Ok you pay it, but it's nice! Take a selfie and you feel something great!

While you are visiting Los Angeles and are downtown go to the corner of 4th and Hill Streets and check out the Angels Flight Railway. It is interesting and enjoyable and does not take long to see.

It costs a buck. It's adorable and fun and has historic value. It gets you to the top of the hill. Really, what else could you want?

For a single US dollar, one is able to hop on this little railway carriage for a ride up/down this hill - not often you get to do something for a buck these days and the young ones in our group had a lot of...More

Reminds me of the funicular in Quebec City only much less expensive and a nice ride up. That is, when it is opened.

Back in the early 1950's I used to ride the Angles Flight when I took the streetcar from Inglewood to downtown LA. The streetcar ride down Central Avenue through Watts, lunch at the Forum Cafeteria, and a ride on the Angle Flight were the highlights...More

This is a cute little railway that is definitely worth the $1 trip up. Take the stairs down if possible. Unique experience and nothing more.

Not only did 100 million people in the past take a ride on this, but it has been in movies from years ago and most recently! You can start your ride going up or down the hill and it costs $1 per person per trip....More

Downtown
Downtown Los Angeles is a busy metropolis of towering
buildings, bustling streets, and industrial

cultures here with a growing influx of business
professionals and hipsters. Many call the evolution of
Downtown over recent years gentrification. New lofts,
bars, hotels and restaurants are popping up regularly.
Downtown is home to some of the very best restaurants

There are plans to re-open, and technically the trains are said to be in working condition. There is, however, a lot of red-tape and insurance issues to cover so it is still doubtful. There is no official date for... More
