ART & GARDENS
Picture lush Alhambra-like manicured gardens with rushing fountains, traditional Japanese scenes with bridges and koi ponds, and formal Italian-esque lawns lined with Roman statues… The Huntington, AKA the Huntington Library, Art Museum, and Botanical Gardens is a 120-acre paradise. It’s also a collections-based educational and research institution, first established by Henry E. Huntington and wife Arabella in 1919. Go for tea in the rose garden room, see an art or rare book exhibition, or stroll the bucolic grounds.Learn More
Watch the Magic Kingdom parade of classics — Mickey Mouse, Cinderella, Donald Duck, Pluto — under the spectacular sunset fireworks, get giddy on over-the-top rollercoasters and thrill-inducing amusement rides, brunch with princesses, take tours and take in live shows. The original 100-acre Disneyland opened in Anaheim in 1955 is just 45 miles from The Miramar, and they don’t call it the “happiest place on Earth” for nothing. Take the kids or just be a kid for a day.
The Broad is L.A.’s groundbreaking contemporary art museum, located downtown on South Grand. See the world-class private art collection of philanthropists Eli and Edythe Broad, some 2,000 post-war works in rotating displays. General admission to the permanent collection galleries is free of charge. The architecture of this landmark, which debuted in 2015, is just as impressive as the artwork inside. Catch a monthly late-night film or music series if you can.Learn More
FOOD EMPORIUM & MARKETPLACE
Always bustling, the packed Grand Central Market houses dozens of vendors under a 30,000-square-foot arcade. Mexican? Chinese? Jewish deli? It’s all here. Sample anything from fresh oysters to fresh-pressed juice, meet the butchers, green grocers, fishers and farmers, and get to know LA’s array of mouth-watering cuisines and cultures. Shop and peruse the stands; dine at the shared community tables. This downtown landmark on South Broadway has been around since 1917.Learn More
Enjoy a dazzling view of L.A. all lit up at night and learn about the cosmos at the same time. The Griffith Observatory is a local icon and national leader in public astronomy. It’s also a popular gathering place and one of So Cal’s biggest attractions. Ponder our role in the universe, partake in real astronomy, ID the constellations through powerful telescopes, attend a screening plus Q&A, join a “star party” and watch live shows. The sunset walks and talks are a great entry point.Learn More
