Downtown Los Angeles is coming up! Where else can you look at historical buildings, shop, eat, and drink! Every weekend it seems like there are always groups of walking/photo tours around the historical core as well as great foodie tours. Make sure when you are down there to his the grand central farmers market for lunch and have a drinks at one of DTLA many bars such as Seven Grand, Perch, or Down and OutRecommended for:

Bar hop around the Historic Core neighborhood, grab a bowl of ramen in Little Tokyo, taste test classic French dips at rivals Philippe's and Cole's, eat dim sum or late night Chinese food in Chinatown, see a Los Angeles Philharmonic concert, or catch a Lakers or Clippers game at the Staples Center. Most of all, I love city lights and viewing downtown at night over a cocktail at one of the town's rooftop bars is one of my favorite things to do.Recommended for:

Not the easiest city in the world to navigate but colorful with a uniqueness all it's own. Downtown has come into its own with so much to offer. There is the Walt Disney Concert Hall, LA Live, Little Tokyo, Chinatown, Olvera St and Dodger Stadium and those are just the beginning. DTLA has been revitalized and must be seen.Recommended for:

Fact: If you are a fan of the Power Rangers, the early-90s action pre-teen TV show adapted from the Japanese version (Super Sentai) the pan in for when Earth is first attacked is downtown LA. With that fact out of the way, this is one of the biggest cities in the world and here is downtown. Do I suggest you drive through? No. But if you want to come and enjoy the sights and sounds, by all means!

If compared with Downtown of other american city maybe this one is not so big. However it offers some interesting spots, sich as restaurants, library and theatre I remember with pleasure.

New and upcoming area when comparing it to previous years. Artsy vibe with endless amount of places to eat and drink at. Some parts of the neighborhood can feel less safe so plan ahead! Oh and parking can be a nightmare, use this link and type in the venue to see what your parking options are. http://www.parkme.com/los-angeles-parkingRecommended for:

Los Angeles is an odd city. The area that's basically "the city" is not nearly as fun or interesting as the surrounding areas that also make up Los Angeles. It was fun to visit. Not fun to drive through (which is one of those very true stereotypes - LA traffic = the worst). Something to see at least once, but I'd rather spend time in Venice Beach or Santa Monica over Downtown LA any day.Recommended for:

We just walked a couple of hours in Downtown LA. We saw Walt Disney Concert Hall and took the elevator in The Westin Bonaventure Hotel & Suites. The elevator brings you to the 32th floor. Free attraction :-)

Downtown LA was a place nobody wanted to come to (except to work) however in the past several years the re-gentrification effort has had amazing results. Being in downtown when the sun went down was a big no-no ten years ago but now there is so many trendy bars and restaurants! They made expensive lofts and apartments but I think a lot has to do with moving the Lakers to downtown and creating the Staples Center. This allowed the surrounding areas to slowly clean up and build nice restaurants and shopping areas. The redline going into downtown also makes it easy for people like me (in hollywood) to take the train down without worries of parking in an expensive lot.
Nokia theater is a great smaller concert venue, LA live is a fun place to meet up with friends, and little tokyo is a great spot for good japanese cuisine.

The new old LA. perfectly young, crazy, harsh, and mellow. A perfect cross-section of the life and vibe of LA. And every night finishes with that greatest of all night foods - the bacon-wrapped, pan-fried, sauteed onions and saucy dirty dog.
