Echo Park

Nestled between Silver Lake and Downtown LA, Echo Park embodies vintage charm and multicultural arts. Wander along Sunset Boulevard to browse eccentric boutiques, then refuel at old-school diners serving delicious Mexican food. Echo Park Lake is a serene urban oasis with paddle boats and city views. Don’t miss catching a show at the Echoplex, a legendary indie music venue under the looming 101 Freeway overpass.


From Korean BBQ joints to bustling 24-hour spas, Koreatown envelops visitors in authentic Korean culture. Stock up on kimchi and Asian beauty products while strolling Western and Vermont Avenues. Then work off your meal with a night of karaoke in one of Koreatown’s private singing rooms. The neighborhood also houses grand temples and the Korean American National Museum.

Arts District

Downtown LA’s Arts District earned its name from the explosion of galleries, studios, and street art. Graffiti-covered warehouses now house trendy shops and cafes. Don’t miss The Broad, LA’s contemporary art museum, and the Hauser & Wirth arts complex. Every second Thursday, thousands flock here for an evening gallery crawl.


For a taste of the eclectic Venice vibe, head west to walk the Venice Beach boardwalk, watch street performers, and browse souvenir shops. Then stroll the adjacent Venice canals lined with funky cottages. Abbot Kinney Boulevard draws trendsetters with upscale boutiques, restaurants, and the popular Gjusta bakery. Visit on Sundays for the Venice Farmers Market.

Silver Lake

Rivaling Echo Park for LA’s hippest eastside locale, Silver Lake charms visitors with indie coffee shops, reinvented tiki bars, and the iconic Music Box Steps. Walking around the Silver Lake Reservoir offers scenic city views and potential celebrity sightings. Then hunt for mid-century modern furniture and thrifted threads along Sunset and Hollywood Boulevards.

West Hollywood

No trip to LA is complete without a visit to the legendary Sunset Strip, located in the heart of West Hollywood. Rock music history lives on at venues like The Roxy and Viper Room. WeHo’s also home to iconic eateries like Pink’s Hot Dogs, pop-up boutiques on Melrose Avenue, and the historic Sunset Tower Hotel. Don’t miss a photo op with the “Gateway to Hollywood” sign.


From historical Broadway Theater District to modern high rises, Downtown LA mixes old and new. Shop designer fashion at The Bloc, then take selfies at the kaleidoscopic Walt Disney Concert Hall. The revitalized Grand Central Market offers 32 food stalls, while The Broad houses contemporary art favorites. Come for a game or concert at the Staples Center.

Santa Monica

Just miles west of the LA hustle lies the laidback beach vibe of Santa Monica. Enjoy carnival games and seafood on the pier, views from the bluffs, and shopping on Third Street Promenade. Rent a bike and cruise the coast along beach bike paths. Then toast the sunset with craft brews at Santa Monica Brew Works by the beach.
