Los Angeles Trip Itineraries

Downtown

Destination(s): Los Angeles

Los Angeles is not New York or Chicago. It developed primarily in the 1920s and again in the 1950s. It became the epicenter of a national experiment; people were tired of the congestion of Eastern US cities. Fifty years later, Los Angeles is a city unlike any other in scope or design. Downtown Los Angeles, long neglected and overlooked, has awakened in the past ten years. It is now a vibrant community, replete with some of the tallest skyscrapers in the country, cultural neighborhoods unique to the area and a rich historical past. It is still a transitional neighborhood, but it now offers any visitor an experience rich in culture and history. This is a two day trip designed to give the visitor a glance into the silent heart of this massive metropolis. This isn't Disneyland or Universal Studios; this is a chance to experience the violent and exciting jolt of a city moving forward. read more about Downtown

Olvera Street is, like most of Los Angeles, a combination of authentic history, reconstructed fantasy and pure fun. Situated in the middle of Downtown, Olvera Street has been turned into a lively market place reminiscent of Old Mexico. It was here that Los Angeles was founded in the late 1700s as El Pueblo de Nuesta Señora Reina de los Ángeles. In the 1930s, it was turned into a Mexican oasis in the middle of a burgeoning and thriving Downtown. Olvera Street continues to attract locals and visitors alike with an assortment of Mexican restaurants, small curios shops and historical markers. read more about Olvera Street
