If you're staying with us in the Downtown LA area and will be attending an event at the Hollywood Bowl, well lucky you! The Hollywood Bowl is one of our favorite music venues, so you're in for a treat if it's your first time there.
Every year, we have guests stay with us who will be attending the Rose Parade in Pasadena. For those international guests unfamiliar with the Rose Parade, it is a popular parade that has been running annually on January 1st for more than 125 years. It travels a 5 1/2 mile stretch of spectators, showcasing floats made out of - you guessed it - ROSES, as well as marching bands, cultural dance performances and more.
Around the Downtown LA and surrounding areas, you will see Latin American fruit carts loaded with watermelon, cantaloupe, mango, jicama, cucumber and other seasonal fruits. You get to customize your fruit selection and get only the fruits you want. What makes these fruit carts special is that you can top your fruit with chili powder and/or lime. We personally always get both because there is something really great about that sweet-meets-sour bite.
If you are a pastrami fan, you cannot visit Los Angeles without eating at the historic Langer's Deli. Open since 1947, this deli offers the BEST pastrami sandwich you will ever eat in your life. Guaranteed.
The Los Angeles Fashion District is great for business travelers (buyers, designers, wholesalers), as well as leisure shoppers. Most transactions are wholesale but there are plenty of retail opportunities for every shopper.
Several of our guests invest in the GO CARD Los Angeles in order to save on sightseeing. It works great as long as you do some pre-planning and determine exactly what you want to see and do. Just make sure you don't try to do too much in one day. Since Los Angeles is huge and spread out, cramming too many activities into one day can rush you too much and ruin the experience.
