Los Angeles
Best Things to Do

Downtown LA

Whether you're a tourist or a local, if you want to get a true historical sense of Downtown LA (aka DTLA), take a walking tour with the Los Angeles Conservancy. Decades before DTLA achieved its current status as hipster central, it was promoting the neighborhood's architectural richness and continues to do so today.

Even if you're not boarding a train, take a stroll through Union Station, known as the last great railway station in America. Opened in 1939, the structure is a blend of Art Deco and Spanish Colonial Revival styles and offers dining options along with weekly entertainment. You'll also want to explore Angelino Heights, a section of Echo Park with the highest concentration of Victorian homes in the city. And don't forget to catch a live show at one of the opulent movie palaces on Broadway, the onetime entertainment center of Los Angeles.
