“I love Los Angeles. I love Hollywood. They’re beautiful” – Andy Warhol
Since 1976, the LA Louver gallery has mounted world-class exhibitions and represents renowned artists such as David Hockney, Ed Moses and Kenneth Price. Now housed in a spacious modern building designed by Frederick Fisher, the LA Louver has a timeless sense of artistic purpose enhanced by its varied roster of new and established talent.
Built in 1905 by Abbot Kinney, this vibrant district has canals which flow behind adorable Venice bungalows and is a perfect place to catch a breather between that LA hustle.
Beyond LA itself are some beautiful nature spots and trails. Eaton Canyon Falls, Vasquez Rocks, Sandstone Peak, Griffith Park Trails, Runyon Canyon Park are a few to try. And one of the iconic things to do is go tandem biking on Redondo Beach – pure comic gold.
LOS ANGELES COUNTY MUSEUM OF ART (LACMA)
Boasting masterpieces, contemporary works and traditional Japanese screens, this comprehensive art museum has to be on your must-visit list. While you’re there we are sure you won’t be able to resist a pose in front of the monumental Chris Burden creation, Urban Light (a maze of streetlights gathered from around LA and restored to working order ). The sheer abundance of work gone into this museum is super impressive. Griffith Observatory
Nest led among the ultra-chic Hollywood Hills, the Griffith Observatory’s panoramic views of the LA landscapes are the stuff of dreams. Inside there are a bevy of exhibits which include a Foucault Pendulum. Give yourself plenty of time to walk around so you can gaze at the night sky through the 12-inch refracting telescope on the roof. One for the science savvy among you.
HUNTINGTON LIBRARY, ART COLLECTIONS AND BOTANICAL GARDENS
Easily one of the most enjoyable attractions of LA. Between the art, the library holdings and the vast outdoor spaces there’s plenty to see and do. Go for the green space and calm.
