For everyone who has seen the LA on countless TV shows and in movies, checking out first hand is a must. Totally worth a visit and it is close to the Grand Central Market. Worthwhile.

This old TV show fixture is a worthy stop for an LA visit. Main reason, you get to see how strange the city is layed out and also get to peg a few stops. You can see the Hollywood sign, Chavez Ravine, and the Griffith...More

Downtown Los Angeles is a busy metropolis of towering
buildings, bustling streets, and industrial
warehouses. There is a distinct multiplicity of
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
