#1 Travel Tip

“Los Angeles has so many places to offer. I recommend you wear comfortable shoes if you plan to explore the heart of Downtown L.A. However, the metro station is now offering Metro Bikes to check out at a dock point location. These bikes are located everywhere in the city to use as you travel through downtown.”

5. Griffith Observatory

  • Some of the restaurants with the most celebrated Mexican food in Los Angeles were founded almost a century ago. These hotspots continue to boast authentic flavors that drive tourism from around the country for a taste of proper Mexican cuisine.

  • The Los Angeles County Museum of Art (LACMA) can be found in the Miracle Mile next to the La Brea Tar Pits. The museum attracts over one million art enthusiasts annually and features collections of art from multiple cultures. Of course, Chris Burden’s Urban Light is always on display outdoors.

  • The Walt Disney Concert Hall is home to the LA Philharmonic Orchestra and the LA Master Chorale. Known for its unorthodox architecture specific to acoustics, the venue was built with Douglas-fir ceilings, which supplement the oak floors for proper reverberation.

  • Dodger Stadium is one of the oldest stadiums in the Majors. As the home of the Los Angeles Dodgers, the stadium seats 56,000 fans at capacity and is the largest capacity stadium in all of Major League Baseball.

  • The Griffith Observatory is known for its incredible view of Los Angeles and the Hollywood sign. There are two ways to make your way up to the observatory: drive and find parking or start hiking at the corner of Los Feliz Dr. and Fern Dell Dr.
