So much to do in dtla! Can't get enough of it!Aside from the nightlife bars/lounges, dirty dogs and restaurants/cafe's, there are more things to love about downtown la. Japanese festivals, Cinco de Mayo celebrations, art walk, BET, etc.So many fun activities happen, especially during summer. Free outdoor movie and free bootcamps at the grand park, ciclavia, cheap shopping at fashion district, free improv or poem reading at The Last Bookstore, people filming, etc.The only downsides are the parking (some places are free parking after 8pm and all day sunday READ THE SIGN JUST TO BE SAFE), the dumb drivers, one way street and the homeless people asking you for money.
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 Out
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.
Downtown LA is the place to be in Sunny Southern California. There's always a festival, events, marathons going on. So many restaurants to choose from and different districts to go shopping. Would recommend using a GPS around the city since there are a couple one way streets and some areas are sketchy.
Downtown has never been more vibrant. Many notable restaurants have located downtown and it is also home to several major museums including MOCA, and great restaurants. It is a great spot for nightlife (visit the rooftop bars at Perch, ACE Hotel and The Standard for a classic So Cal evening experience.
