Escorted Tour - Los Angeles Overview

Los Angeles Overview

LA runs deeper than her blonde beaches, rolling hills and beemers-for-days would have you believe. She’s a myth. A beacon for countless small-town dreamers, rockers and risk-takers, an open-minded angel who encourages her people to live and let live without judgment or shame. She has given us Quentin Tarantino, Jim Morrison and Serena and Venus Williams; spawned skateboarding and gangsta rap; popularized implants, electrolysis and Spandex; and has nurtured not just great writers, performers and directors, but also the ground-breaking yogis who first brought Eastern wisdom to the Western world.

LA is best defined by simple life-affirming moments: a cracked-ice, jazz-age cocktail on Beverly Blvd, a hike high into the Hollywood Hills sagebrush, a swirling pod of dolphins off Point Dume, a pink-washed sunset over a thundering Venice Beach drum circle, the perfect taco and her night music. There is always night music.

Renowned Los Angeles Tourist Attractions
Abbott Kinney First Fridays

Head over to Venice for Abbot Kinney First Fridays, to support locally owned businesses and peruse one of the city’s top art walks. The event itself is free, but prepare for temptation from the area's cute boutiques selling home wares, stationary, clothing, and more.

Barnsdall Wine Tasting

On Friday evenings, Silver lake Wine puts on the ultimate outdoor happy hour at the Barnsdall Art Park, with the backdrop of Frank Lloyd Wright’s Hollyhock House as the setting. For $30 you’ll get four tastes of boutique, esoteric wines from around the globe, and for an additional $12 you can tourthe historic home, which was the acclaimed architect’s first project in L.A. Bring your own picnicor enjoy eats from some of the city’s finest food trucks while watching the sun set over the palm-tree-dotted Hollywood Hills, and you’ll never want to leave.

Cinespia Movie Screenings

Pack a picnic basket and blanket, and head out to one of the city’s most iconic summertime gatherings: a series of cult movie screenings that takes place in the Hollywood Forever Cemetery, where the likes of Johnny Ramone, Cecil B. DeMille, Jayne Mansfield, and more have been laid to rest. Potluck with friends as the sun sets, listen to music themed to the feature du jour, then catch films like “Willy Wonka and the Chocolate Factory,”“Carrie,” or “Fight Club.” Arrive early, as prime seating goes fast, then relax under the silhouettes of palm trees while the smell of sweet kettle corn wafts through the warm summer night’s air.

Dodger Stadium

Echo Park has become a gentrified hipster ‘hood, drawing in travelers in the know for seeking out great cocktail bars, quality indie shopping, and edgy restaurants. But for Angelenos, it’s not just about the scene; it’s about going to the game. On Friday nights during summer, every home game offers a fireworks show. And eaters in the know flock to the right field seats, where an all-you-can-eat deluge of Dodger dogs and nachos is included in the price of your ticket. You’ll really need that seventh inning stretch.

Downtown LA Art Walk

It’s a feast for the senses at the Downtown L.A. Art Walk, where the blossoming community convenes on the second Thursday of the month to showcase art, music, and more. The events take place mostly within the galleries on Spring and Main streets between 2nd and 9th streets.

Los Angeles County Museum of Art

With more than 128,000 pieces of art in their encyclopedic collection including David Hockney and Vincent Van Gogh, it can be a task navigating a day at LACMA. After stopping for obligatory selfies in front of Chris Burden’s iconic cast iron street lamps known as Urban Light, be sure to check out the artist’s lesser-known but equally impressive Metropolis II, where every hour, approximately 1,000 toy cars race through the dense network of buildings, giving you a playful simulation of what it’s like to deal with L.A. traffic on a daily basis.

Marvin Braude Bike Trail

Work off all those famous Angeleno street tacos with a stroll or bike ride down a portion of the Marvin Braude Bike Trail, also known as The Strand—a mostly flat, well-paved 22-mile beach path running along the Pacific from Will Rodgers State Beach to Torrance.

The Broad Museum

The Broad Museum in Downtown L.A. has made art democratic by extending complimentary general admission access to Eli and Edythe Broad’s personal collection of nearly 2,000 pieces of contemporary art from the 1950s to the present. A restaurant by former French Laundry chef Tim Hollingsworth calledOtium is also of note.
