Downtown Tips (68)

LA's Downtown

LA's Downtown area is pretty much a concrete jungle settled in amongst freeways and the Los Angeles river. There are plenty of attractions to see like the LA Childrens Museum, the Civic Centre and the Museum of Contemporary Art.

City Hall

One of the most distinctive buildings in downtown is the City Hall completed in 1928 in a Art deco style. This building has been used in many films.

Downtown LA has clusters of high buildings in contrast to other parts of the city. A visit to LA will not be complete if downtown is left out.
