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

FREE! Yes, really. You do have to have your bag scanned, and get a visitor's badge, but this building is a true Los Angeles treasure. Built in the late 1920s, it contains amazing art nouveau details, in the elevators and particularly in the third floor....More

Downtown
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
