So, I’m a little sad that I only discovered this on accident as I was patronizing the row of food trucks that park themselves parallel to the LACMA during lunch. Behind the Wall is an exhibit that’s apparently been standing here for a few years, on loan from the Wende Museum. Several artists were commissioned… Read More Behind the Wall Exhibit
These pictures represent a snippet of the DTLA arts district – a blend of funky businesses and industry, restaurants, artists studios and newly renovated lofts – and personality. And, of course, art is EVERYWHERE. 👏🏽🎨👀
There’s too much to say about Melrose. Art, life. Retail, food. Bars and funky, punny names and storefronts and curbs. I hadn’t really wandered alone for some time, and the vibe was all its own.

If you can swing the front of line pass, I strongly suggest it! Universal Studios offers amazing rides, breathtaking views, education for the TV and movie-loving set (take the Back Lot Tour!), and pure… Read More Universal Studios Hollywood
DTLA Walking Tours has expanded its tour offerings to include a “Haunted” walking tour of DTLA, and it’s just in time for the season. Neel, DTLA Walking Tour’s owner and lead tour guide, has done an awesome job of pulling together facts, pictures, historical snippets and a winding path through some of DTLA’s most notorious… Read More Haunted DTLA Walking Tour
