Downtown Los Angeles, California – Our July 2020 Feature
We’re super excited to be talking about Downtown Los Angeles for this month’s City Snapshot (…or more commonly referred to as DTLA)!
With its unique combination of old and new, Downtown LA is a unique cultural hub you won’t find anywhere else on the West Coast. It’s the central business district for Los Angeles, California, and a place where skyscrapers rub shoulders with historical buildings and museums share street addresses with theaters. It’s filled with trendy restaurants, shops, and cultural attractions, like fun art walks and street festivals.
We always recommend new visitors start their DTLA stay by checking out the Grand Central Market. It’s a historic indoor/outdoor venue that’s been serving the community for well over a hundred years. Oh, and if you’re hungry – this is the place to find some of LA’s finest street food!
If a cultural trip is up your alley, we also recommend heading over to Little Tokyo. It’s a fantastic mini-destination within the DTLA vicinity, loaded with markets selling authentic Japanese produce. We love the neat little terrace, strung with lanterns throughout. For a moment, we swear you’ll forget you’re in L.A.!
And, for all our music lovers out there, we recommend hitting the Grammy Museum or the Music Center – where you’ll be sure to get your dose of music history, inspiration, and live performances.
If you think all of this sounds nice, wait until you read about some of our favorite DTLA hotels and venues!
