On Wednesday Jan. 9th we took Athena and Mat on a sightseeing tour of Los Angeles. The weather was clear and beautiful.
Angels Flight, the "Shortest Railway in the World," opened in 1901 and quickly became a city landmark.
The grassy area just to the side of Angels flight is Angels knoll. Athena and Mat sat at the bench to duplicate a scene from a movie shot here called "500 Days of Summer"
At the bottom of the hill and just across the street is the famous Grand Central Market. Food vendors and many ethnic restaurants are here. This is where we ate lunch.
A quick hop on the metrolink red line and we are at our next destination "Hollywood Blvd" at the Hollywood/Highland stop. Here you will find quite a scene of characters dressed up in Superhero costumes, Robots, starlets. If you take pictures with them be prepared to pay a fee. On the corner of Hollywood and Highland is the Kodak theater surrounded by cafes and shops. Go to the 2nd floor and towards the rear you will have a great photo opportunity of the famous Hollywood sign in the hills just beyond where you are.
This is a busy place where metrolines connect to all different part of Los Angeles and where people can also catch the Amtrack trains.
The stately exterior of the Station is surrounded by lovely tall palm trees. This is in the heart of downtown Los Angeles.
As the sun begins to set it's time to catch the metro home. What a fun day touring some spots in Los Angeles. Time to say "Adios" for now!
