Historic Downtown Los Angeles Walking Tour with the L.A. Conservancy

Sign up or log in to save this to your schedule and see who's attending!

We will travel by Metro Gold Line from Pasadena to downtown Los Angeles. At 9:00 we will meet a Los Angeles Conservancy docent at Angels Flight to begin this walking tour. "The Historic Downtown tour provides an overview of the historical and cultural landmarks of downtown Los Angeles. Covering a wide range of architectural styles, and including anecdotes about the people behind the buildings, this tour is a great way to become acquainted (or re-acquainted) with the unique character of downtown Los Angeles.  Historic Downtown, as the area around Pershing Square is known, is the heart of downtown. Some of the most beloved Los Angeles landmarks are in this area, such as the Central Library, Angels Flight, and the Bradbury Building. The history of the area goes back to the founding of the city in 1781, and its architecture tells the story of the growth of the city from the 1890s to the present, including the current trend of conversions of vintage office buildings into loft-style apartments and condos.” The walking tour will end in time to take the Metro back to the Sheraton Hotel to arrive at 1:30.
