Overview
Why do the LA: Food + History + Design Tour?

Food: From French newcomers in the nineteenth century, to Italian immigrants of the early twentieth century, to waves of migration from China, Vietnam and Thailand in the last fifty years, each culture has left its mark on the LA culinary landscape. And we haven’t mentioned Latin America or Japan!

History: Los Angeles has a fascinating story. Many of its oldest buildings, from when the tiny pueblo was just a farming town in the Wild West, are still standing and you’ll go inside them on this tour.

Design: DTLA has many iconic buildings – City Hall, the Walt Disney Hall and the Eastern Columbia Building to name just three. You’ll also experience many beautiful interior spaces, from the Bradbury Building, to Union Station to an Art Nouveau hotel lobby.

* Tour starts 12 midday, Sunday
