The Los Angeles City Hall!

A beautiful view of Los Angeles can be enjoyed from the observation deck of the City Hall, the city hall of the metropolis LA.

After the security checks and the examination of the personal details, take the elevator up to the 27th floor. There is the platform from which you have a magnificent panoramic view of the city with its skyscrapers. You can also see the Disney Concert Hall, the Olvera Street and in the distance even the Hollywood Sign. After enjoying the great view, you should take a walk through the surrounding park.

The Santa Monica Pier is one of Los Angeles' most popular attractions. There is the terminus of Route 66 and there is a small amusement park.

If you want to get to know the origin of Los Angeles, Olvera Street should not miss the heart of this city.

This street offers a really interesting contrast amid the skyscrapers of Los Angeles. Many visitors from all over the world stroll through the small Mexican market with its many souvenir stands.

Avila Adobe is also located on Olvera Street and is the oldest building in Los Angeles. It is open to the public as a museum and furnished with great attention to detail, in the style that was customary in 1840.

    Great tips love Sigrid!
    Anyway, I'm the guy who walks around town with his eyes wide open and looks at everything and drives around in the car when visiting museums, amusement parks and more. Therefore, my trips are always quite cheap in terms of running costs.
    Experience more, pay less 🙂

  • I always find such tips great! One often does not mean how cheap one can design city trips!

    Best regards,

  • That sounds great! In fact, I have never been to America before, so far, I have always preferred all sorts of destinations in Europe. But who knows what is not, can still be and then I will remember your tips. 😉

    dearest greetings

  • Dear Sigrid,
    Since you have put together a nice little selection.
    El Pueblo de los Ángeles reminds me of the atmosphere very much Texas 🙂
    I think it's good that you introduce free sights. Especially in the last few years, I have experienced time and again that simply everyone is required to enter and that you have to stand in line for hours. Especially as a student you travel rather with a small budget, as your tips are super thank you 🙂

    Greetings and happy Easter

  • Dear Sigrid,

    I like to go back to LA ... such a great city and as you can see, not everything costs a lot of money. You can do a lot of things that are completely free :-)!

    Thanks for this nice post!
