Los Angeles, city of expansiveness, traffic, music and facades. Attempting to write a brief entry on the city of Los Angeles is akin to trying to write one tweet about all of California. While LA is large and overwhelming, if you dive into a neighborhood and get to know it a bit, the harsh exterior begins to fade and you’ll find yourself faced with a few streets to call your own for however long you plan to stay, be it hours or years.
A few of my favorite spots in LA include the Chinatown art galleries, the arts district, and the LA River. The Friends of the LA River even provide a guided tour for a variety of budgets (from helicopter, kayaking to walking).
Walking through the arts district you’ll notice street art from the likes of JR, and other world renown artists.
