Downtown LA is filled with modern buildings, cool bars, and interesting things to do. Though it’s becoming more widely known for it’s nightlife, it’s a highly underrated area of Los Angeles, in my humble opinion, and definitely worth a visit when you’re here.
Over the past few years, downtown LA has become a trendy place to live, but, for the most part, it is a business district. It becomes much less crowded over the weekends, when the 9-5 crowd isn’t buzzing around their skyscraper offices.
One of the most beautiful landmarks downtown is the stunning Walt Disney Concert Hall, which has been open since 2003. This striking building is made of stainless steel and it’s exterior beautifully reflects light.
Even if you’re not going to a concert, it’s a great spot to visit! There’s a garden/park area that is open to the public, which you can access by going up the flight of stairs next to the building. It offers an awesome view of downtown, sitting areas, beautiful fountains, and a perfect view of this architectural marvel.
When David and I were wandering around downtown, we randomly came across a set where they were filming cars and an Octoberfest celebration, all in one day! So, the possibilities are endless.
I hope this encourages you to explore downtown LA and see what kind of adventures YOU can find!
