Los Angeles Tour Guide: Best Attractions in Los Angeles

The City of Los Angeles is home to numerous places of interest along its many famous streets. Places like The Grove and Chinatown are visually engaging with unique themes.

Just the words “Los Angeles” conjures up images of palm trees and sunshine, starlets and the Walk of Fame, Rodeo Drive shopping and countless scenes from thousands of movies(the first boasts a charming village appearance, while the latter offers the glam of Hollywood-ized Shanghai). But the heavyweight champ of architectural masterpieces is the Walt Disney Concert Hall, which was designed by Frank Gehry. Another favorite attraction in Los Angeles is the Farmers Market, which—with everything from produce and freshly cut steaks to clothing and cocktails—is every shopper’s paradise. 

Farmers Market
6333 West 3rd St., Los Angeles, CA 90036
Operating since 1934, the Farmers Market at 3rd and Fairfax is more than just a destination for fresh fruits and veggies – it’s an all-out tourist attraction. Open daily, this incredible market is filled with fresh produce stands, butcher shops, seafood stores and bakeries, not to mention both national and locally-owned luxury shopping destinations offering everything from candles to clothing to furniture. The Los Angeles Farmers Market is also home to over 30 restaurants and cocktail stops.

Chinatown
947 North Broadway, Los Angeles, CA 90012
Located in downtown Los Angeles, Chinatown is an area rich with culture and history. It was originally located in the area now known as Union Square, but was moved to its current home in the 1930s where it received an upgrade and a personality change to reflect both Chinese and American culture – think a Hollywood-influenced version of Shanghai. Vibrant shopping destinations, restaurants and galleries are now stationed proudly among unique examples of architecture on the bright and exciting streets. While many businesses cater mainly to tourists in this area, there are also many that cater to locals, adding an element of authenticity to the glitzy surroundings.

The Grove
189 The Grove Drive, Los Angeles, CA 90036
An extra snazzy shopping center across the street from the Los Angeles Farmers Market, The Grove is a must-see destination if not purely for its unique features. An incredible fountain at center erupts every 30 minutes, shooting water 60 feet into the air and pulsing in beat with fun songs from the likes of Dean Martin, Harry Connick Jr., Lonel Richie and Frank Sinatra. A double decker tram moves back and forth through the massive center and to and from the Farmers Market. Dozens of high-end (along with a few mid-range) retailers clutter the complex, and all are built to look reminiscent of buildings from the early to mid 1900s, giving the center a beautiful and charming appearance.

Walt Disney Concert Hall
111 South Grand Ave., Los Angeles, CA 90012
Designed by renowned creative architect Frank Gehry (who was also responsible for designing such masterpieces as the Guggenheim Museum in Spain and the Experience music Project in Seattle), the Walt Disney Concert Hall is a truly unique sight to behold. Home to the Los Angeles Philharmonic Orchestra and the Los Angeles Master Chorale, this concert hall is known for sensational acoustics. It has appeared in several movies, such as recent films Iron Man and Get Smart, and performers such as Ellen DeGeneres, Rascal Flatts and Kelly Clarkson have performed here during special events.
