What’s included in my ticket/experience?
Begin your tour at Union Station, called the last of America's great train stations. Discover grand historic structures, surreal monuments and futuristic sci-fi-inspired architecture. Squint your eyes, and the stainless steel Walt Disney Concert Hall design looks like a gleaming clipper ship, its sails filled with wind. Visit Olvera Street, known as “the birthplace of Los Angeles.” The block-long tree-shaded Mexican marketplace is part of El Pueblo de Los Angeles Historical Monument. Walk down Union Street, a vibrant symbol of LA’s spirit and soul. Its’ stunning signature Mission Modern style combines Spanish Colonial, Mission Revival and Art Deco architecture. Visit The Bradbury Building - where modest mildly Romanesque exterior hides a magical light-filled Victorian court, open cage elevators, marble stairs, and ornate iron railings, built in 1893. Enjoy Grand Central Market, which boasts vintage neon signs, glorious 1960s tile-work and original Beaux-Arts detailing. See a railway on a steep hillside, opened in 1901 to ferry passengers up and down the steep slope to the top of Bunker Hill and remains one of LA’s most endearing landmarks.
