I wasn't sure exactly what we were being told but when I saw the rail car going up the incline I understood. There is a elevation change in LA that I was unaware of and this rail car makes it simple to transition over the...More

We made the big mistake of eating at the plaza at the top of this wonderful,cute historic railway. Take a chance on the "big" expense of a 1.00 and go to the original central market and eat your way from front to back

Downtown Los Angeles is a busy metropolis of towering
buildings, bustling streets, and industrial
warehouses. There is a distinct multiplicity of
cultures here with a growing influx of business
professionals and hipsters. Many call the evolution of
Downtown over recent years gentrification. New lofts,
bars, hotels and restaurants are popping up regularly.
Downtown is home to some of the very best restaurants

There are plans to re-open, and technically the trains are said to be in working condition. There is, however, a lot of red-tape and insurance issues to cover so it is still doubtful. There is no official date for... More
