Points of interest, historic buildings, LA landmarks and tourist attractions in Downtown Los Angeles.
Above the Second Street Tunnel where it cuts under Bunker Hill sits a beautiful stainless steel structure resembling sheets of sheet music blowing in the wind.
If you need a good reason to ride Angels Flight, other than how utterly cool it is, or that it is a favorite LA tourist attraction (and by far one of the cheapest), I have one more. It’s what you get to see at the top.
I’m sure I’m not the only one that has walked by the statues at the northeast entrance to MacArthur Park near downtown Los Angeles and wondered what they represent.
While I was down in the Los Angeles Historic Core and Theatre District a month ago, this building caught my attention more than once. It can be seen from various vantage points all over downtown Los Angeles.
You wouldn’t think an office building would rank #34 of 595 things to do in Los Angeles, but the Bradbury Building does just that. You definitely want to add it to your places to see in Los Angeles if you are near downtown.
Not all of the grand old theatre palaces in the Los Angeles Downtown Theatre District are on Broadway. One such example is the Mayan Theatre which is located a block west at 1038 South Hill Street, just south of Olympic.
Los Angeles has more than its share of historic buildings and places. Of them, Angel’s Flight in Downtown LA is probably the most beloved piece of our heritage by both tourists and locals.
Pershing Square is a public park in downtown Los Angeles, California, covering the block bounded by 5th Street to the north, 6th Street to the south, Hill Street to the east, and Olive Street to the west.
One of the historic gems on the Broadway Theatre District is the Million Dollar Theatre. Built in 1918, it’s finely detailed architecture dates back to the period when Los Angeles was just beginning its explosive growth as the center of the film industry.
Today, one of the most stunning views of Downtown Los Angeles is from MacArthur Park in the once grand Westlake neighborhood.
