Join us on Saturday, May 30 at 10:30 a.m. for an urban hike lead by a docent from the Los Angeles Conservancy who will show us and tell us about the fascinating historic sites of downtown L.A.
The Los Angeles Conservancy is a nonprofit membership organization that works through education and advocacy to recognize, preserve, and revitalize the historic architectural and cultural resources of Los Angeles County.
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.
Some of the most beloved landmarks of our city are in this area, such as the Central Library, Angels Flight, the Grand Central Market 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.
Keeping with the historic theme, following the tour, we’ll enjoy LA-style Chicano food at Más Malo set in a beautiful circa-1923 building. (SingularCity members get 15 percent off their check!)
